Blueberry-Raspberry Aquafaba Muffins

  • Makes 12 muffins

Berries, bananas, and a big dose of vanilla make these easy vegan muffins extra-luscious, but aquafaba is the real star of the recipe. Aquafaba (aqua = water, faba = bean) is the liquid that comes in a can of chickpeas, which can be used to replace eggs and egg whites in baked goods. As a general rule, 3 tablespoons of aquafaba are equal to about one whole egg. No need to crack open a can of chickpeas every time you want to bake with aquafaba: The viscous liquid will keep up to three days in the fridge and can be frozen into ice cubes for even longer storage.

Ingredients

  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added chickpeas
  • 1 lemon
  • ⅔ cup mashed banana
  • ½ cup pitted whole dates, chopped
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup fresh raspberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with silicone cupcake liners. Drain the chickpeas, reserving ½ cup of the liquid. (Cover and chill chickpeas up to 3 days for another use.)
  2. Remove 2 teaspoons of zest and squeeze 2 teaspoons of juice from the lemon. Combine the banana, dates, reserved chickpea liquid, lemon zest and juice, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth.
  3. Combine the flour, chia seeds, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and stir well. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir, just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in the blueberries and raspberries.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the liners.
