Now that we're at the end of July and Summer is coming to a close, I've been all about easy recipes that can be easily packed away throughout the day, especially since the school year is about to begin again.
I'm usually not a muffin type of girl (I eat them ever so often!). However, I was super excited to make these mini muffins.
I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoy sweets in miniature sizes. I guess it creates less guilt when they're smaller, right? Haha.
Back to these muffins---I love LOVE blueberries and pairing them with Acai was a super amazing move.
I hardly ever get to eat anything with Acai flavor, so the fact that Navitas Organics created such an accessible and easy way to incorporate major nutrients is such a win, win.
Navtias Organics has so many great options when it comes to eating healthy and this powder is just ONE of the amazing flavors available.
In case you aren't too familiar, Navitas Organics has an array of options which include Cacao, Goji Berries, Maca Powder, Superfood blends, Turmeric, Chia Seeds, Mulberry Berries, and so much!
In addition, they have Latte mixes, Powder Boosts, Power Snacks, and more.
If you're new to the Acai flavor, then you'll want to know that it's a taste somewhere between chocolate and wild berries and has a creamy, rich texture.
Honestly, this flavor is perfect in smoothie, shake, Acai bowl, yogurt, dessert, and of course these muffins!
If you aren't aware, Acai is super nutrient-dense. Originally from Brazil, these berries are considered a 'super fruit".
In addition, Acai is said to have the possibility of improving Cholesterol levels, boost brain function, and have Anti-cancer effects.
Surprisingly, the best way to eat Acai berries are in powder form, which gives the highest concentrated amounts of nutrients.
Acai in powdered form gives you the highest amount of fiber and healthy fats as well as plant compounds.

Now, let's dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly spray a 24-cavity mini cupcake/muffin pan with coconut oil spray or a healthy cooking oil spray.
In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the milk and apple cider vinegar, stir anf let is sit for 8-10 minutes. **NOTE: This acts like "buttermilk".**
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, Acai powder, sea salt, and arrowroot starch. Whisk ingredients together until well combined.
Add the milk-cider mixture to the dry ingredients followed by the coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir all ingredients together using a rubber spatula until everything is well incorporated.
Gently fold in blueberries and using a Tbsp, spoon batter into the prepared mini cupcake/muffin pan (about ¾-1 full tablespoon each), spreading the batter evenly within each cavity.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife that is inserted in the middles comes out clean.
Once done, remove muffins from oven and let them cool for a bit (about 10 minutes) before removing them from the cupcake/muffin pan.
To serve, enjoy a mini muffin with a glass of non-dairy milk and enjoy.
