Blueberry Muffins

These muffins have a secret ingredient that gives these muffins an incredible rise and doming. They are so pretty.  The secret ingredient is aquafaba. Aquafaba is the liquid from canned garbanzo/chick peas. It is like liquid gold, so do not throw it out. It will keep in your refrigerator for a week, or you can freeze it. Freeze it in tablespoon measurements. In any case they will whip up beautifully, just let the liquid come to room temp before you whip up the aquafaba.

By whipping the aquafaba you are incorporating a binder and a leavener all in one ingredient. This miracle ingredient will make all the difference in your vegan baking.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 2/3c GF All-purpose Flour Blend
  • 1 c organic sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp Himalayn salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease muffin wells. Set aside

Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Stir-ins:

  • 2 c blueberries (1 cup is just not enough)

Stir blueberries into dry ingredients.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 c almond milk yogurt, plain
  • 2/3 c oat milk
  • 7 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Whisk together all wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

Aquafaba Whip:

  • 3 tbsp aquafaba liquid
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

In a medium bowl whip aquafaba and cream of tartar using a handheld mixer. The stand mixer does not work very well due to the little amount of liquid to whip.

Combine wet, dry and the stir-ins together.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin wells.

Bake for 22/30 minutes (12 well tin/6 well tin), or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool.

Share. Eat. Enjoy.

  2. Your secret ingredient that you say is in the recipe is not listed anywhere in the ingredients.

    1. Hi Casey. My apologies. I have fixed the issue on the site and it should show the process for the aqua faba. Thanks for stopping by Cathryn’s Kitchen.
