Vegan Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins

Ever since I made this Rhubarb Crumble Cake, I have a thing for streusel now. I want to put them on everything I bake in the oven. For this vegan Blueberry Lemon Streusel recipe I gave the streusel a little twist by adding freshly grated lemon zest into the mixture. The tangy lemon streusel go perfectly well with the sweet blueberry muffins. It’s a flavor combination you don’t want to miss in your life :)

These vegan Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins are omnivore-approved! My work colleagues loved them!

The blueberry muffin base is super easy to make – and it’s a one-bowl recipe! Simply combine the dry ingredients, then add in the wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.

In this recipe, I added the frozen blueberries shortly before the crumble. I’ve divided the muffin batter into the muffin liners and after that added the frozen blueberries on top. I used the end of a spoon to press them deeper into the muffin batter. My reason for doing so? I wanted to keep the light color of the muffin base. If I mix the frozen blueberries into the batter and whisk or fold, the whole batter gets a purple/blue color, which can be nice, but in this recipe I wanted to have a light muffin base.

Ingredients
 
 

Ingredients for the muffin base

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour , sifted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sweetener
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup almond milk or your favorite plant-based milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut vinegar*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Ingredients for the Lemon Streusel

  • 1/3 stick cold vegan butter (EarthBalance, Alsan,...)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour , sifted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 360°F/180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients for the muffins (except the frozen blueberries), whisk, then add in the wet ingredients and whisk again until it's a smooth batter.
  • Now is the perfect time to make the LEMON STREUSEL. Combine the butter, flour, sugar and lemon zest in a large bowl and knead with your hands until it's nice and crumbly.
  • Fill the batter in muffin wrappers or use a lightly oiled muffin pan. Place a few frozen blueberries on each muffin and press them down with the end of a spoon. Sprinkle the lemon streusel on top. Put the muffins in the oven for about 20 minutes. If the streusel have a nice golden color the muffins are surely done.
  • Let them cool off a bit before enjoying them!

Notes

*Coconut vinegar is mild vinegar which I prefer for my baked goods. You can substitute it with apple cider vinegar for example.
