Finding the perfect muffin recipe (that’s not in a box) is hard…finding even a decent dairy free muffin recipe is even harder. I stumbled upon a recipe from Martha Stewart and with a few modifications, this recipe has become a Seibert staple. So much so, that I had to make dozens for my husband’s office when one of his co-workers snagged one and raved about it. Not to toot my own horn, but if an office full of men like these vegan blueberry muffins, you know they’re good. Since one of the guys in the office has a gluten allergy, I adapted the recipe to a gluten free (sugar-free and dairy free) recipe coming soon. This reminds me of that Thanksgiving episode from friends where Brad Pitt guest stars and brings the “no fat, no sugar, no good, throw it out pie.” But unlike that instance, this stuff is actually good and people will want to eat it, just ask the men.
I have this school of thought that if your kitchenware is beautiful you’ll use it more. Might sound odd, but think about it, the same can be said with clothes. Regardless, I love Juliska for their beautiful, yet functional, kitchen items. That’s why they’re one of the top brands on my registry must-haves list. Everything from the adorable muffin pan to these mixing bowls I always use (the multiple sizes are great for multi-step recipes, especially if you have to be conscious of allergy cross-contamination in the kitchen).
Hopefully after all of this, you have a few leftovers. Of course, you have to try one fresh out of the oven, but instead of wrapping the rest up in foil, display them on the counter and keep them fresh. These covered cake stands from Target are adorable and will keep any baked goods fresher, longer.
- 1/3 c coconut oil (melted)

- Place batter into a muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes (my oven takes 22 minutes exactly).
