Ingredients

  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup Milk

  • 1/4 cup Yogurt

  • 1/4 cup Oil We used Canola oil

  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • Dry Ingredients
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour

  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar

  • 3 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1 tsp Baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • Fresh ingredients
  • 1 cup Blueberries

  • 1 tbsp Lemon zest freshly grated

  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg freshly grated (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F or 220°C for at least 10 minutes.
  • Take a mixing bowl and whisk all the dry ingredients (all purpose flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg powder and lemon zest) together until well combined.
  • Next in a smaller bowl take a tablespoon full of flour mixtures and coat the blueberries with the flour by sprinkling and mixing it gently.
  • HOT TIP*This prevents the blueberries from sinking to the bottom when baking.
  • In another large bowl, add wet ingredients (oil, yogurt, milk, vanilla). Beat it using a wire whisk till everything is well combined.
  • Always add the dry ingredient flour mix into the wet ingredient mix, to get a homogenous mix. Start mixing using a wire whisk and halfway through switch to a spatula. And mix till everything is incorporated well. Do not over mix.
  • Now add flour coated berries. Fold them into the batter gently. Make sure not to break any berries, otherwise, the batter will bleed and have blue streaks when the muffins are baked.
  • Divide the batter into prepared muffin pan. Bake into the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or till the toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the muffin pan for 5-10 minutes then transfer the muffins to a cooling rack. One can serve them warm or at room temperature.

Notes

  • Blueberries : Fresh firm berries render the best flavor. But if you are using frozen ones, there is no need to thaw just remember while baking you need to i increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes

Helpful Tips to remember

  • Do not over-mix the batter ,because this will make the muffins tough and chewy, instead of being soft and tender. Use the whisk gently, until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Folding the batter with a spatula half way through mixing helps, especially when you have added the coated blueberries. This prevents the berries from breaking and bleeding into the batter.
  • To prevent lumps from forming always add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. This will also make the muffins soft and tender when baked, as there are very few or no lumps.

How to store muffins?

  • Muffins stay good for 2-3 days.Store them in a single layer in an airtight container.If you need to stack them, you can use parchment paper in between layers.
  • Muffins stay good in the refrigerator for a week in an airtight container.
  • If you want to freeze the blueberry muffins, you can wrap them individually in plastic wrap and freeze them for up to 3 months in freezer safe ziplock bags in the freezer. When ready to use, microwave them for 10- 15 seconds before serving.

FAQs:

Can I use frozen blueberries in muffins?

Fresh blueberries offer the best flavor.

If they are not available, you can use frozen blueberries for this recipe. There is no need to thaw them, just add frozen blueberries directly into the batter, so they don’t bleed too much into the batter.

When using frozen blueberries, increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes.

How do you refresh blueberries?

Place the berries in a large bowl and wash them in a vinegar-water bath: 1 cup of white vinegar and 8 cups of water. Let the berries sit in the vinegar-water bath, gently moving them to help dislodge any dirt, grime and letting the vinegar kill spores and bacteria.

How to prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the batter when baking?

Toss them with a tablespoon of the flour mixture (just enough flour to coat the berries). Then fold this flour-coated berries into the batter as a very last step before baking.

This coating of flour absorbs some of the liquid released by the berries as it bakes and keeps them in the place until the muffin crumb has set.

No more soggy bottomed bleeding muffins!

Can melted butter be used instead of oil in this recipe?

No.

Butter makes the muffins dry and crumbly.

Using flavorless oils like Canola, corn or vegetable oil is the best way to make these muffins soft & fluffy.

Can we use buttermilk instead of milk for this recipe?

Yes, you can.

Buttermilk makes the muffins extra soft with tender crumbs.

What goes well with blueberry muffins?

Blueberries also have a certain malty scent, which pairs well with cherries, almonds, apples, apricots, blackberries, bananas, lychees, avocados and elderflower.

What can I do with a bunch of blueberries?

  • Dehydrate them.
  • Make Gelato
  • Make Muffins
  • Make a Smoothie
  • Make Tarts
  • Juice Them
  • Make Frozen Yogurt with Blueberries
  • Make Pudding

Thanks for this recipe! I am going to try it with full fat Oatmilk and greek style coconut yogurt to see if I can spin up a vegan version. I think it will work perfectly since the hardest replacement (the egg) has already been taken care of. Thank you for the inspiration!

I never thought of refrigerating muffins or freezing them. That is a great idea. Your recipe looks very moist. I’m not too fond of dry muffins, so these are a must-try.
