These vegan blueberry muffins are low-fat and oil free, but still perfectly moist, tender and really easy to make. This post is sponsored by Kroger.
While I don’t follow a specific diet I am drawn toward plant-based options (love me some veggies!) and eat a wholesome diet focused on real food. When Kroger asked if I wanted to promote the new Simple Truth plant-based line, it was an easy yes! I was already a huge fan of their Simple Truth products and it’s exciting to have even more plant-based options to choose from at Kroger.
Whether you are a meat eater or a veteran vegetarian, I believe it’s important to incorporate plant-based meals into you diet! This can feel like a drastic change for some so I wanted to share some easy ideas.
Tips for Eating More Plant-Based
Start small! Don’t feel like you need to eat 100% plant-based. Start by making one small change. Try this Simple Truth Oat Milk (link) in your morning coffee instead of cow’s milk.
Focus on real foods. It’s easy to lean on processed, packaged options when switching your diet but remember to focus on real foods. Load up on veggies!
Balance. Remember to balance out your meals. You still need healthy fats, fiber and protein to feel satisfied so make sure you’re getting all three while eating plant based.
Simple Plant-Based Recipes:
Enjoy a plant-based breakfast by having one of these blueberry muffins and a non-dairy latte. I’m obsessed with oat milk lattes at the moment. They’re so creamy!
Instead of traditional tacos, try using a plant-based option like lentils, beans, tofu or tempeh instead of meat. I love these tempeh tacos and these Asian tofu tacos are to-die-for.
Swap in tofu for meat in stir fries and other Asian dishes. I love my baked peanut tofu recipe!
Upgrade your smoothie by using a dairy-free milk instead of cow’s milk. You can make this orange banana smoothie with almond, oat or coconut milk.
All of these ingredients can be found at your local Kroger. Don’t forget! Kroger now has in-store pickup and delivery so if you’re running short on time or just despise grocery shopping, Kroger has you covered.
whole wheat pastry flour and all-purpose flour – the combination of these flours makes a wholesome muffin that’s still fluffy and tender.
cane sugar or coconut sugar – I like to swap in coconut sugar for traditional sugar to increase the nutrients a bit, but cane sugar works great too.
Simple Truth Oat Milk + apple cider vinegar – we’re swapping in oat milk for cow’s milk and adding a little apple cider vinegar to make a dairy-free buttermilk.
blueberries – fresh or frozenblueberries work great for these muffins.
