Ingredients

  • For the muffins:
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup milk + 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter*
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour GF version: ¼ cup GF oat flour + ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup fresh blackberries

  • For the streusel:

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. If you’re not using paper liners, lightly grease a muffin tin.
  • Combine the oats, milk and vinegar (your “buttermilk”—the vinegar will react with the baking powder later) in a mixing bowl. Let the oats soak for at least 5 and up to 30 minutes. Add the oil, cashew butter, honey, and vanilla. Stir by hand until just combined.
  • Add the flour(s), baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until evenly incorporated.
  • Before adding the berries, scoop a tablespoon of batter into each muffin tin. This will prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins. Gently fold the blackberries into the remaining batter and divide evenly between the muffin tins.
  • For the streusel, combine the flour, oats and brown sugar together. Sprinkle a small spoonful of crumbs over each muffin before baking.
  • Bake muffins for 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Notes

Adapted from here.
Whole wheat flour will lead to towering, beautifully bronzed muffins. The gluten-free flour mix I used will lead to slightly less tall, but no less tasty muffins.
*There's not a strong cashew flair in these muffins; feel free to sub any other type of nut butter. Honey is the strongest flavor profile, so be sure to use the best quality honey you can find!
