Equipment

  • muffin tin
  • large mixing bowl
  • mixer and/or blender

Ingredients

Wet to Blend:

  • 1 cup silken tofu
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Bowl:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour or similar
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon optional

Fold in:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries chopped
  • 1/4 cup blueberries fresh or frozen - bring to room temp

Topping:

  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar

Other:

  • vegan butter or oil for greasing tin or liners

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease or line your muffin tin. If greasing, grease generously with vegan butter or coconut oil or a spray oil - then add a dusting of flour. (The flour is optional.) Set aside. TIP: See post for details, but definitely grease the entire tin, even the edges of the wells, since these muffins and the crumble will arch over a bit.
  • Add the tofu, oil, vanilla and lemon juice to a blender. Blend from low to high until smooth and silky - no clumps.
  • Pour the tofu mixture into your large mixing bowl and add all the dry ingredients, including the sugar, flour, rolled oats, salt, baking powder and optional cinnamon. Beat with a mixer - or a sturdy whisk will also work. This batter will feel heavier and thicker than a usual muffin batter, that is because the fruit gives off so much moisture.
  • Fold the berries into the batter - watch how it loosens up a bit from the liquid. Tip: Fold in the strawberries first - more vigorously, then gently fold in the blueberries. Blueberries tend to stain the batter a bit more. Especially if using thawed frozen berries like I did.
  • Add the crumble ingredients to a small bowl and use your hands to squish the crumble together. You are basically squishing the butter with the flour and sugar to form small crumbly bits.
  • Scoop batter into muffin tins, then top with a generous amount of crumble.
  • Bake muffins for 28-35 minutes at 350 degrees. Or until the edges of the tops start to brown and the muffins are nice and poofy - yet firm to touch on the top.
  • Cool in tin for at least ten minutes before carefully removing. They will be delicate and some of the crumble might stick to the edges of the pan.
