lemon blueberry muffins ~vegan & gluten-free~

Happy Friday!

I never knew vegan, gluten free, dairy free muffins could be so fluffy, moist and light!  These don’t fall short of sweetness either thanks to little bit of pure maple syrup.

 I hope you all have wonderful plans for the weekend!  Start it off by making a batch of these to enjoy!
