Muffins-Blueberry-Beet-vegan

My vegan blueberry beet muffins have been waiting very patiently to get up on the blog. I created this recipe already in the beginning of January, but only now have I had the chance to share it with you.

I like to use raw beetroot in my vegan blueberry beet muffins – I just blend it along with other ingredients giving the batter a beautiful vibrant colour. As it comes to grains, I use my two favourites – raw buckwheat and oats (oat bran + gluten-free jumbo oats). Oat bran has been a great discovery since I started vegan Candida diet. Be aware of not eating too much of it though, as you might end up with too much fibre in your system.

Needless to say, my vegan blueberry beet muffins are plant-based, refined sugar free, gluten-free (if you tolerate avenin in oats), oil-free and vegan Candida diet friendly (unless you’re on cleanse).

Notes

  • If you still feel that the muffins need more sweetness, add more sweetener of choice.
  • Make a double or triple batch and freeze the leftover muffins. Heat
    them up in the oven whenever needed. My vegan blueberry beet muffins
    make a great go-to snack.
