Welcome blueberry chocolate chip muffins, to the Okonomi Kitchen muffin family! I'm kinda obsessed with muffins and cupcakes ATM, I just can't stop! They're so fun and easy to make and they're always there for me when I need a quick breakfast or snack.
Today, I'm muffin-i-fying a combo I adore: blueberries + chocolate. I think this combo is waaaay too underrated and never gets enough love compared to it's chocolate strawberry sister. Time to show some love to this delicious duo! Let's get bakin', shall we?
How to Make Vegan Blueberry Chocolate Chip Muffins
I think its a summer thing but I get even more lazier with washing dishes so these healthy blueberry chocolate chip muffins are a 1-bowl + whisk kinda deal made with wholesome ingredients!
- Coconut Yogurt OR Silken Tofu Puree: These two are my absolute favourite egg + oil replacers. I find they yield a softer and more moist muffin vs. flax eggs and apple sauce (tends to be gummy). When I have both on hand, I'll do half coconut yogurt and half tofu for the best of both worlds.
- Maple Syrup: Provides sweetness and moisture.
- Lemon Juice: Just a small amount not only helps react with the baking soda but also leaves a subtle flavour that is lovely with the chocolate and blueberries.
- Oat Flour + Almond Flour + Potato Starch: The flour team for this recipe for the perfect muffin texture. And yes, you can also use corn starch or tapioca starch in this recipe with similar results.
- Blueberries: Fresh or frozen! If using frozen, coat them well with the oat flour and add take them right out of the freezer so they don't bleed too much juice.
- Chocolate Chips: Mini, jumbo, regular or chunk-- your call!
In addition, you will also need baking staples like vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Whisk together the wet ingredients: coconut yogurt/tofu (make sure it's pureed first), maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla extract.
- Mix in the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond flour, potato starch and salt. Sift in the baking powder and baking soda for even distribution. Then fold in the blueberries and chocolate chips. The batter should be thick but not stiff.
- Divide between 10 muffin cups and then bake them at 425 F for 5 minutes. Reduce the baking temperature to 350 F and bake for 18-20 minutes.
- Let them cool in the pan for no more than 3 minutes to prevent soggy wet muffins and then transfer them to a wire rack to fully cool.
How to Properly Store Muffins
- To Store: Once muffins are completely cooled, then store in a paper towel lined air tight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
- To Freeze: Place the muffins in a air tight freezer safe bag or container and then freeze for up to 2 months. When ready, take them out and wrap them with a damp paper towel. Let them thaw at room temperature or microwave for 20 seconds. The damp paper towel prevents the muffins from drying out.

Easy Vegan Blueberry Chocolate Chip Muffins made with wholesome ingredients with just 1-bowl. Perfect for breakfast, snacking and are freezer friendly too! (Oil Free + Refined Sugar Free)
- ⅔ cup coconut yogurt or silken tofu puree (166 // I use a combination of both half and half)
- ⅓ cup maple syrup (100g)
- 3 tbsp lemon juice (45g // or 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar + 2 tbsp water)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (10g)
- 1 cup oat flour (125g)
- 1 cup almond flour (112g)
- 2 tbsp potato starch (14g // or tapioca starch)
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ heaping cup blueberries (80g)
- ½ cup chocolate chips (50g)
- Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Grease or line 8 cups in a muffin tin.
- Into a large mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut yogurt, maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Add in the oat flour, almond flour, potato starch and salt. Sift in the baking powder and baking soda and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries and chocolate chips.
- Divide between 8 muffin cups and then bake for 5 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 F and then bake for another 18-20 minutes or until cooked through. Check by inserting a toothpick into the centre of the muffin, it should come out clean (few cooked crumbs are okay). As well, gently press the top of a muffin and check for it to spring back up. If it does, they're ready to be taken out.

Let me tell you as a person who hates silken tofu and always failed at making blueberry muffins from scratch multiple times, this is a recipe worth making! I made pecan flour instead of almond flour and used teff flour instead of potato starch and it worked nicely (teff flour made the muffins darker). I like the addition of chocolate chips in blueberry muffins. I used semi-sweet and it was a good contrast/balance with the sweet blue berries. I'd definitely use this recipe again!
Blueberry muffins were the first baked goods that I started making when I first got into baking/veganism. I've made blueberry muffins about 5 times within the past three years and they've ALWAYS failed and leave me with regret--- why did I waste those perfectly good bIue berries. 🙁 I knew as soon as this recipe came out that it was worth making (: I even went to get a new and upgraded reusable muffin tin! We're upgrading our life bby! One blueberry muffin at a time (:
My batch only made 9 muffins instead of 12.
Rebecca Rose says
Hi, can you clarify if it is 8 or 12 muffins? You say grease 8 cups at first, but then say to divide between 12 muffiin cups! Went ahead and did 12, and just put them in the oven. Thank you!
Lisa Kitahara says
Hi Rebecca! It makes 8 muffins-- so sorry about that! 12 Should be okay, just may not be as tall of a muffin. I hope you enjoyed!
Rebecca Rose says
Yum! Made the recipe into 12 muffins and it was delicious! You score another winning recipe! I did use the 2/3 cup yougurt and had to sub lemon with lime (I don't buy lemons). The flavors were perfect!
I normally rarely leave reviews for recipes and I am also not a vegan... But these are actually so tasty, my mum and I were in shock you could add silken tofu into muffins! The only things I changed was instead of 1/3 cup maple syrup I just mashed a banana to make up 1/3 cup and added that instead. Added a spoon of maple syrup incase it wasn't sweet enough as well but they were sweet enough for me! Followed the 1/3 cup silken tofu and 1/3 cup coconut yoghurt as well. I think next time I won't add in extra soy milk which I added in initially as it looked a bit dry for a muffin batter but I was proven wrong haha. Still tasted so damn good though!!
Lisa Kitahara says
I'm so glad you enjoyed Jess!! Love the banana idea, I too like muffins not too sweet so I'll have to try that!
super delicious! took these to a dinner party and everyone (vegans and non vegans) loved them. thanks for the recipe 🙂
Hi ! Can I replace the yogurt or tofu by apple sauce ? If so, how much apple sauce should I put ?
Lisa Kitahara says
I haven't tried but it should be okay. They might be a little more dense but still moist! It'll be 1:1 ratio. 🙂 Let me know how it goes!
My mom and I absolutely love these! I’ve never tried using tofu in a baked good before but it makes them so moist and delicious. And the hint of lemon gives them a more lighter feel! Definitely making these again. My mom has even asked me for the recipe!
Leena Chen says
Wow, this recipe was amazing! Moist, fluffy and not crumbly. It tastes like a regular muffin! The potato starch did well as a gluten substitute so that you can "tear" the muffin. I used regular milk since we are not vegan, but this recipe was a hit and great option for my kiddo with wheat and egg allergies. I make a batch of 9 each time, and freeze. I put directly from freezer to oven to reheat. 325 degrees F for 15 minutes. Tastes great!
