Blueberry muffins are filed under one of life's most pleasurable experiences. But if I mention vegan blueberry muffins that are also gluten-free and packed with flax, you might be more skeptical. Regular blueberry muffins are carby and sweet. They're full of juicy burst-in-your-mouth blueberries. So when they're healthy, hot damn you've hit the muffin jackpot.

These vegan, gluten-free blueberry flax muffins are full of healthful fats, good-for-you-carbs, and fresh fruit, making them the perfect breakfast or snack. They'll satisfy your hunger and your tastebuds, and fill you to the brim with happy goodness. After all, there's nothing better than bloobs.
