I bet you never in a million years expected to see the words “raw vegan” on this site. Bake and Destroy – a celebration of refined sugars and white flour. Have I gone health vegan on you? Are overflowing mason jar smoothies just around the corner?

Nah, don’t worry about me, I’m still dedicated fully to being gross – and part of that dedication means eating raw batter and dough every chance I get. Now you could go through the trouble of making actual blueberry muffin batter just to lick the mixing spoon, or you could just make these bites, which take about 5 minutes to come together.

While I did receive the Bob’s Red Mill dried blueberries and I Heart Keenwah Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal in this recipe for free, I was not compensated for this post.

Raw Vegan Blueberry Muffin Bites

  • Yield: 2 dozen

For this recipe, I used dried blueberries, rehydrated in water for 15 mins because they're less messy than fresh or frozen, and toasted quinoa flakes, which have a more mellow, nutty flavor than other quinoa flakes.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. I recommend using a food processor as opposed to a blender to make these as the dough is quite sticky.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the cashews, quinoa flakes, sea salt, cinnamon and nutmeg until it forms a fine meal texture. Be careful not to pulse it into cashew butter.
  3. Add the lemon zest, maple syrup and vanilla and pulse until smooth. It will form a ball. Scrape down the sides and pulse until everything is blended.
  4. Scrape the dough into a bowl, and stir in the blueberries. You might need to get in there with your hands.
  5. Scoop out 1 tsp sized balls of dough, and roll smooth between your palms. I place mine directly into a resealable container so I can store them in the fridge. You can eat them right away, or refrigerate them until they're a little more firm. Store them in a covered container.
