    Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

    Forget about those boxed mixes from the store because I promise these are just as easy to make.

    Sure you may have to have a few extra ingredients or open a few extra packages but it’s worth it!

    What makes these blueberry muffins healthy?

    These are made healthier by making a few ingredient swaps. I like to make muffins often so when I do I try to pack a little extra nutrition into them.

    I am using white whole wheat flour and naturally sweetening them with honey. I am also using Greek yogurt for extra protein.

    They are easy swaps that make me feel better about what I am feeding my family.

    Ingredient List:

    • Flour: use white whole wheat for extra nutrition but can also use unbleached all-purpose flour. If you need a gluten-free version replace it with a cup for cup gluten-free flour. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour is a great one to use.
    • Baking Powder and Baking Soda
    • Salt: salt is actually very important in baked goods so don’t leave it out! It helps with the flavor of the muffins!
    • Butter: you can also use avocado or coconut oil instead.
    • Honey: can also replace with maple syrup or sugar.
    • Eggs
    • Greek Yogurt: can use vanilla Greek yogurt. If you do omit the vanilla in the recipe. You can also use regular yogurt or sour cream.
    • Vanilla
    • Blueberries: you can use fresh or frozen. If you are using frozen DO NOT thaw them before using or your muffins will be blue.

    Muffin tips:

    • Don’t overwork the batter. Stir just until everything is combined and no longer for tender muffins. No need to use a mixer because muffin batter should be lumpy.
    • If you are looking for those nice rounded tops that aren’t pointy be sure not to overmix.
    • Use a large cookie scoop or spring handled ice cream scoop to make filling the muffin pan easier and cleaner. Use a No. 20 or 24.
    • After filling the cups be sure to wipe up any batter spills on the pan so they don’t burn.
    • When muffins are done take them out of the pan right away to they don’t get soggy.
    • Let them cool completely for best flavor! I know that can be really hard!

    If you are looking for a great muffin pan I have 2 options and I love them both: USA 12 Cup Muffin Pan or this Structured Silicone Muffin Pan.
