"You won't miss the dairy in these tangy blueberry muffins! They have great flavor and a moist texture that produces muffins that no one will believe came from a dairy-free recipe. Be sure to check the label on your margarine for milk solids. Some margarines will contain some milk product." — GINBLAKE

This is my very favorite blueberry muffin recipe. I do make some variations, though. I use rice milk instead of soy milk, and I eliminate the lime juice and instead add an extra 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla. I also decrease the sugar to 2/3 cup because i cut the sugar in pretty much everything I bake.
This is not a lactose-free recipe and should be removed or changed before it hurts someone. Margarine contains whey, which is milk sugar and milk protein, and can place the lactose-intolerant in extreme pain. You might substitute olive oil or another cooking oil in it's place, that would make it lactose free. I give it one star for the inaccuracy of making the very first ingredient a lactose containing product.
I have not made this yet...but wanted to comment on the last review. The author of the recipe did say to check your margarine for milk products. There are margarines available with no milk products...I know because I buy them. They do not cause any milk problems.
I can't wait to try this recipe!! :)
This is a great receipe. I used nucoa brand margarine which is lactose free and Lactaid milk which still worked great.
We just discovered our daughter is lactose intolerant. I was looking for a blueberry muffin recipe that she could enjoy. This recipe was really good. If you are concerned about the lactose, just substitute natural applesauce for the margarine. I always do this in recipes that call for butter, margarine or oil. Then you can also cut a bit of the sugar as the applesauce adds natural sugar. My daughter's only complaint was too many blueberries-I may have thrown a couple extra in! Thanks for sharing!
This recipe is not really lactose free. Margarine generally contains whey (a diary product) and sometimes other dairy products. If you suggest soybean margarine from Willow Run, that would work or even subsitute the margarine with canola oil.
Great recipe... I substituted honey for sugar 2/3c... these turned out super!! Thanks for the recipe!
Really yummy, lime juice gives a nice twang! I used mixed berries and made bigger muffins so my batch made 12 instead of 18, still 25 minutes. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing.
