happy almost weekend from me and these perfect muffin cookies! i set out to make something that could be eaten for breakfast or as a snack, and these pass the test! Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffin cookies are vegan, gluten-free, nutrient dense and just as tasty as can be.
if you’re going to have a muffin cookie for breakfast, i recommend having two just so you stay full. you could always pair the muffin cookie with something else too!
1/2 avocado, some nut buttaaaah and a Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffin Cookie?! hot damn, now that’s a breakie.
while the taste is amazing, ya know, 10/10, so is the texture. further down the blog post, you can see what the inside of Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffin Cookies look like.
while these are indeed in the shape of cookies, the texture is very similar to a muffin, hence the name!
you could also opt for a different add in rather than bluebs, but like i said, i wanted them to be a great breakfast option.
if you’re looking for something a little more decadent….hello chocolate chips.
there’s actually no peanut butter in the cookies, just for topping because, ya know that’s my fave. there is some nut butter though!
i used almond butter, just so the flavor of the nut butter wouldn’t be overpowering as it is with peanut butter. however, peanut butter is awesome and if you want a pb flavor, go for it!
the muffin cookies are sweetened with bananas and a little bit of maple syrup, just two tbsp. i think it’s a necessary ingredient, but if you want to omit the maple syrup, add a couple tbsp almond milk instead.
here’s everything you’re going to need to make these muffin cookies!
- almond flour
- all purpose gluten free flour
- baking powder
- flax meal
- mashed banana
- heavy coconut cream or thick coconut yogurt (canned and only the thick part, not the liquid)
- almond extract
- almond butter
- maple syrup
- frozen blueberries

as far as subs, this is the only way i made Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffin Cookies, so you would be subbing at your own risk!
the all purpose gluten-free flour blend that i used by the way is Trader Joe’s brand! also love their nut butters because they’re on the runnier side.
