  • Make a well in your flour and in thirds, gently pour in your milk mix. Gentle fold liquids into the flour with a whisk until just combined. Sprinkle half of your blueberries into the mix and gentle fold in. Don't over mix. Don't worry if it's a little lumpy.

  • Bake in oven for 20-25 mins or until a skewer comes out clean when poked into the middle of a muffin.
  • Leave muffins in their pans for 10 minutes before removing them. Then move to a cooling rack so the bottoms don't become soggy.
  • Brush tops with jam or maple syrup to add shine.
  • Store in an airtight container or freeze
 straight after they have cooled.

RECIPE NOTE: In New Zealand, some white vinegar isn't vegan as animal products are sometimes used in the fermenting process. Pams has confirmed that this product is free from animal-derived ingredients.
