The flavor of lemon and blueberry complement one another making these vegan Lemon Glazed Blueberry Muffins one of my all time favorite flavorful foods!

To make these dairy and egg free muffins moist and super dense, I use silken tofu which is a great source of protein. For additional protein, I highly recommend using pea milk as opposed to other plant milks.
