There’s nothing better than waking up to fresh blueberry muffins on a weekend morning.  Muffins make the kitchen smell amazing as they cook – and they are irresistible with a pad of unsalted butter.
Easy and salt-free blueberry muffins are a great way to rise & shine.  I use a sodium free baking powder to reduce the overall sodium content in these, and they turn out perfect every time! A great breakfast to prep for the week – these muffins taste amazing and are great for anyone at the table.

Which Milk Should I Use For A Low Sodium Diet?

Depending on your preferences, it’s up to you!  I prefer to use a fresh homemade almond milk (only two ingredients: water + almonds!) and I follow my 5-minute recipe.

How Do I Make These Blueberry Muffins Without Milk or Butter?

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin tin or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, salt, and sodium free baking powder.
  3. In a small bowl mix the wet ingredients: eggs, vegetable oil, almond milk, vanilla extract.  Once mixed, pour into the dry ingredients and stir well.
  4. Fold the blueberries into the batter, and scoop the batter into the muffin tin. Batter should fill the muffin cups to the top.
  5. Make the crumble: in a bowl, add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and unsalted butter.  Mash with a fork and scoop about a tablespoon over each muffin before baking.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Muffins will be ready when you can insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.

Dietary Modifications, Vegan and Gluten Free Options

  • Vegan Option: To make these vegan, use an egg replacer or flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax meal mixed with 1 tablespoon of water, for each egg).
  • Gluten Free Option: To make these gluten free: use a 1:1 gluten free baking mix or almond flour instead of the all purpose.
