Wild Blueberry White Chocolate Muffins w/ Coconut Streusel (Vegan, GF)

By Ashley | Breakfast

Jul 23

A fresh bakery-style blueberry muffin with a giant streusel or sugar top, served warm is one of the best sweet indulgences! But finding one that isn’t full of gluten and dairy is the quite the feat! And TBH, I haven’t quite mastered the perfect flour combo for achieving the perfect muffin texture sans gluten in my trials thus far! 

Enter: Chelsea Approved Banana Bread Mix!

And although this mix does make an epic banana bread, it’s extremely versatile and it’s the secret ingredient for these knock-your-socks-off berry muffins, studded with white chocolate and topped with an addictive coconut oat streusel!

The flour, sugar and leavener are perfected for you, so all you need to add is oil, applesauce, yogurt, and vanilla to create a fluffy nostalgic muffin! And the streusel and drizzle if you’re feeling fancy! 

This recipe is beyond delicious as is, but you can easily swap ingredients depending on availability, seasonality and your taste preference. Chocolate chips and different kinds of fruits and nuts can replace the white chocolate, blueberries and coconut – the options are limitless!

Enjoy one (or several) of these beauties warm from the oven on a sunny summer morning with your favorite coffee or tea =) Enjoy!
