Dairy-Free Breakfast Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins


Being lactose intolerant, I have adjusted my Mom's old recipe to make it non-dairy. Here is the perfect alternative using Tofutti® cream cheese. You would never know it's not real cream cheese. Serve this for breakfast or brunch on a sunny spring day.

12 muffins


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 egg

  • ¾ cup vanilla soy milk

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 4 ounces dairy-free cream cheese (such as Tofutti®)

  • ¾ cup fresh blueberries

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.

  2. Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar and baking powder in large bowl.

  3. In a second bowl, beat egg. Mix in soy milk, oil, and lemon zest. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and mix batter with a spatula until just moistened. Fold in blueberries. Mix in dairy-free cream cheese by the 1/4 teaspoon so there are small chunks all around the batter. Gently blend in. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 18 to 20 minutes.

  5. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and lemon juice and in a small bowl. Brush onto the warm muffins immediately after they come out of the oven.
