Following in a trend I have been setting for myself for, oh, the past 5 years or so, I offer you a holiday-themed recipe…post-holiday.

Unlike past holidays, I will no longer beat myself anymore for this shortfall. Instead, I’m giving my tendencies a positive spin. I like to celebrate a holiday on the holiday, and, even better, continue enjoying the holiday for several days after. It takes a lot of pressure off of making a single day perfect (this is an especially good trick for birthdays; I highly recommend the birthday week).

Hence, to commemorate this 4th of July week, I offer my (patriotic) blueberry muffins, made vegan, oil-free, flourless, and gluten-free with the help of oats and raw cashews. They are:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Oil-free
  • Flourless
  • Super-easy to make
  • Delicious!

The blueberries this summer have been nothing short of glorious. I have been eating them by the fistful and freezing hoards, too.

But there is something uniquely luscious about blueberries baked into a sweet, tender batter. The heat intensifies the flavor, and the contrast between golden crumbs and inky berries in a single mouthful is nothing short of summer bliss.

Make the Oat & Cashew Batter in a Blender

This easy muffin recipe is just such bliss. The batter could not be easier to prepare: simply blend oats and raw cashews in a blender until completely smooth (along with sweetener and leavening). The cashews deliver the fat, as well as structure to these tender, egg- and gluten-free muffins.

Divide the batter between lined muffin cups, avoiding the temptation of filling the cups too full!  If the cups are filled with too much batter, they will not rise properly. Use all 9 cups for the batter.

Once the batter is divided between the cups, divide the blueberries between the cups.

Use Other Fruits and Berries

Blueberries work best in this recipe, but blackberries and raspberries are great, too. Strawberries will not work; they have too much water to work in this recipe exactly as written, so save those for eating alongside.

Other summer fruits, besides berries, can work, especially stone fruits (e.g., apricots, nectarines and peaches).

These are worth turning on the oven, no matter the heat and humidity–happy eating, everyone!
