Blueberry muffins are a delicious vegan treat for breakfast or snacks. Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container, where they will last for several days, and can be warmed in a microwave oven before eating, if desired.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Begin the recipe by placing the whole wheat or spelt flour in a mixing bowl along with the quick oats. If you do not have quick oats, place the rolled oats in the container of a blender and run it at high speed until the oatmeal is finely chopped, and add to the mixing bowl. Add the baking powder and mix well.
Place the peeled bananas and the raisins OR pitted dates in the blender container, cover, and blend at high speed until the mixture is smooth.
Set out the muffin pans and cups, or use lightly oiled non-stick muffin pans.
Add the frozen blueberries to the flour mixture and mix well, making sure that all the berries are coated with the flour. Add the banana raisin or date mixture and mix well. If the ingredients are too stiff, add a little apple juice or water, but don't let the muffin dough become runny. It should be slightly on the stiff side.
Immediately spoon the muffin dough into the muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full, so that the muffins can rise without overflowing the cups.
Place the muffin pans in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
