Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Hello!  I’ve been home alone for the last handful of days, my Valentine was in Boston working on the U.S. Grand Prix Big Air Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding Competitions which were held in Fenway Park!!!!  So awesome.  They built a massive 140-foot high ramp right in the middle of the baseball field.  The peak of the ramp was 3 times the size of the green monster, and the athletes had to clear a 70-foot gap while throwing down their best tricks.  It was a historic event for sure.  Check it out:

Anyways!  When I’m home alone for a weekend, I end up craving & cooking some random things… this time, it was blueberry muffins!  I had to have them, but of course I wanted to make them healthy and vegan.  I did some recipe testing and here’s the best I could come up with.  They are good, but heated up with some earth balance coconut butter on top, they are great!!!

You could use any type of non-flavored oil, and any type of non-dairy milk, I just happened to have hemp milk in the fridge.  Regular sea salt would be fine as well, I just had some Himalayan pink in my cabinet.  One other note – keep the blueberries frozen, don’t defrost before hand.  I feel like these muffins added some sunshine to my day… hope you enjoy!
