Let's dive into how to make these delightful muffins that are perfect for breakfast, snacks, or a light dessert.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup oat milk
2 cups oat flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup vegan butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ⅓ cup strawberries, diced
1 scoop PlantFusion Complete Plant Collagen Builder, Creamy Vanilla Bean

Preheat and Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.

Combine Lemon Juice and Oat Milk: In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice with the oat milk and set aside for a few minutes. This mixture will curdle slightly, creating a vegan buttermilk that adds richness and depth to the muffins.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Ensuring these ingredients are well combined will help your muffins rise perfectly.

Cream Sugars and Butter: In another bowl, cream together the vegan butter, sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. This process incorporates air into the butter, helping to create a tender crumb in the muffins.

Add Wet Ingredients: To the creamed butter and sugars, add the vanilla extract and the oat milk mixture. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

Fold in the Strawberries and Collagen Powder: Gently fold in the diced strawberries and the scoop of PlantFusion Complete Plant Collagen Builder. The collagen powder not only adds a delightful vanilla flavor but also boosts the nutritional profile of your muffins.

Bake: Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool and Enjoy: Allow the muffins to cool in the tin, and enjoy!
