  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 cup oat flour or almond flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (8 Tbsp.)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or milk)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (or coconut oil)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Cinnamon sugar topping

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with liners and spray with non-stick baking spray so muffins don't stick!
  • In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients together: flours, baking power, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. 
  • In a stand electric mixer, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar. Then add in the buttermilk, oil, maple syrup/honey, eggs and vanilla until smooth. (Mixture will be runny).
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients on medium speed - being careful not to over mix. Carefully fold in the fresh blueberries. 
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin wells. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion them out. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together for the topping and sprinkle on each muffin. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until muffin tops are golden. Let the muffins completely cool. They have a cakey texture so they are very tender.


If you don't want to use buttermilk, or don't have it on hand, use cows milk. Or, I've even used 1/2 cup evaporated milk with 1/4 cup water before as well. 
These muffins have a delicious cakey texture, be sure to let them cool all the way before removed from muffin tin.
