Vegan Vanilla-Mixed Berry Muffins

Featured in our 2018 Easter Guide
Michael Harlan Turkell

Yield: Yields 12 muffins

We have a rule at Flour Bakery that if something is labeled “vegan” it has to be just as delicious to those who are not concerned about the label as to those who are. We created this muffin to satisfy our growing number of customers who have converted to veganism, and it has as many non-vegan fans as vegan ones. In fact, most people don’t believe us when we tell them that it’s vegan. To the nonbelievers the proof is in the recipe. In developing this muffin recipe, we realized that many vegan pastries make up for their lack of dairy and eggs by being super sweet and extra oily. We held back on the sugar and oil to create a scrumptious fluffy muffin that people of all dietary preferences will enjoy.


  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. vegetable oil, such as canola
  • 1-1/3 cups plain soy milk
  • 2 Tbs. distilled white or cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F, and place a rack in the center of the oven. Line the cups of a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners or generously oil and flour them.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. of the sugar and stir until well mixed. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, soy milk, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the middle of the well. Stir with a rubber spatula until well mixed. Add the raspberries and blueberries and mix until the fruit is evenly distributed.
  • Spoon an equal amount of batter into each prepared muffin cup. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining 2 Tbs. sugar.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the muffins are pale gold and the tops spring back when pressed gently in the middle. Let cool in the tin on a wire rack before popping them out. The muffins taste best on the day they are baked, but any uneaten muffins can be stored in a covered container at room temperature for 2 or 3 days. For the best results, refresh them in a 300°F oven for 4 to 5 minutes.flour too cookbook

Vegan Apple-Cinnamon Muffins: Omit the vanilla extract, raspberries, and blueberries. Mix 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon with the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Peel, core, and chop 2 Granny Smith apples and fold them into the finished muffin batter. Proceed as directed.

    I cut the recipe in half (1 1/2 c of flour, 1/2 c of oil, 1/2 cup of sugar), put 1/2 tsp of baking soda (i don't like the taste) and 1 tsp of baking powder. I followed EMM3773's instructions for baking(convection) and they came out perfect. I would cut back the salt by half next time. It made 10 smallish muffins. Didn't tell my husband they're vegan, will find out later what he thinks... next time I might try 1/2 oil, 1/2 apple sauce to cut back on the calories.

    Never had much luck with creating nice looking muffins, so I did some research and applied it to this recipe. I added a bit of extra flour, filled the muffin cups to within 1/8" of top, baked them in a hotter convection oven to start. So -- 13.1 oz flour, I used 2 cups blueberries 'cause that's what I had. Put them in a 420 (395 convection) oven for 10 minutes, then reduced temp to 350 (still on convection so 325) for an additional 16 minutes. This recipe made 12 regular muffins plus enough batter to fill two 6oz pyrex dishes. I left the pyrex dishes in another 5 minutes at 325 convection and they turned out perfect little muffin cakes. I took them out of the tin as soon as I could (about 5 minutes). They looked and tasted great, a big hit at the office. Finally!

    I don't know how my experience is so different but these were an absolute fail for me. The bottoms were fine but the tops tasted like straight baking soda! And I know I mixed everything super evenly, yet every muffin too like terrible soda bread. Yuck.

    This is now my go-to recipe for berry muffins. My kids love them and they've come out perfectly every single time I've made them.Five stars!
