Eggless Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

After my successful attempt of baking with whole wheat flour with Plum Baskets I wanted to try my hands on muffins and with berries in the season I immediately set my mind on blueberries. So my search started for a perfect recipe, there are thousands of eggless and vegan muffin recipes, majority of them call for egg substitutes like tofu, yogurt, flax seeds or applesauce. To my horror I didnt have any of these at home, as i have mentioned before I am trying to empty my pantry and not buying new things as i will be shifting to a new place. While going through my reader I saw the Classic Blueberry Muffins by Happy HomeBaker and thought my prayers were answered. I have been following HappyHomeBaking blog from quite sometime now and I have tried few of her recipes, they always turn out perfect! I twisted and tweaked the recipe to make it eggless and they came out perfect. These were sooooo good, I didnt miss the eggs in the muffins at all. They were light and fluffy, well risen and baked beautifully! A glass of cold milk with warm muffins is perfect way to start your day! Oh these are so easy you dont even require a hand mixer, just a spatula is enough :) Sending these to Madhuram's Whole Grain Eggless Baking event.
Ingredients: 2 cups white whole wheat flour (whole wheat pastry flour is also fine) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp baking soda 2 tsp baking powder 3/4 cup sugar (170 gms) 1/2 cup milk (125 ml) 75 ml vegetable oil (i used sunflower oil) 2 tsp vanilla essence 1 cup fresh blueberries (125 gms) Procedure:
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degress C, line 12 muffin molds with wax paper.
  • Wash blueberries and pat them dry with a kitchen towl. Add 1tbsp of flour and coat them well. Set aside.
  • Sieve together whole wheat flour, baking soda and baking powder.
  • In a seperate bowl whisk together oil, sugar, milk and vanilla essence.
  • Make a well in between the flour mixture and slowly add in the liquid mixture, fold lightly using spatula. DONOT over mix .
  • Now add in the flour coated blueberries and fold in lightly.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin pans, filling upto 3/4 full. Bake them fo 20 to 30 mins, until tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove and serve them warm with a cold glass of milk or ice cream!
Note: The batter should not be runny but thick consistency, if its too dry add a tsp of milk.

  26. 2 alternative suggestions (I hope the suggestion doesn't take from the great post as it's intended to contribute to this already great article)

    Try EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) instead of vegi oil. The trick on this one is to pick a very mild oil. Most are for sandwiches and salads etc where you want a heavy olive flavor, but not for muffins, so if you can find a good one then go for it.

    My real suggestion was on the sugar, but since Doctor Grandma's, my sugar source, is also my evoo and whole wheat source, I thought I'd mention it too. Doctor Grandma's makes a great zero cal sweetener called delight that works super well in baking of all kinds.

    Here's a link - www.doctorgrandmas.com

    By the way....tip 3...let that wheat soak before baking. Whole wheat takes more time to soak up moisture than refined garbage wheat.

    Thanks again for the great article!!!

  105. Hi,
    I tried the blueberry muffin recipe today. It looks good. But I felt the sugar was really less and also the amount of milk that you had mentioned seemed to be less. So I had to add more. Also something seems missing. Don't know what. But will try again and see how it comes the second time.

    Thanks.
