You MUST try these blueberry yogurt muffins! Lower sugar muffins made with yogurt, berries and whole wheat flour.
I’ve got one last recipe for you to make before fresh berries disappear for the season– these lemon blueberry yogurt muffins! Perfect for back-to-school breakfasts or snacks or when you’re craving a healthier muffin.
We know how I feel about muffins. Muffins can’t be cupcakes without the frosting; that just doesn’t sit well with me when I’m grabbing one to pair with my cup of coffee for breakfast. I don’t want my breakfast to be interchangeable with dessert; that’s why these muffins are packed protein-rich yogurt, whole-grain flour, fresh berries and a smidge of sugar.
Have you baked with yogurt before? It’s one of my favorite secret ingredients for keeping baked goods incredibly light and moist. (← the only time that word is appropriate to use, when describing muffins.) Because of its acidity, yogurt reacts with baking soda for leavening while adding a tangy flavor that’s perfectly balancing these lightly sweetened muffins.
You can use both a thicker greek yogurt or a thinner yogurt for these, but I do recommend a plain yogurt and not one that contains added thickeners, flavors or sweeteners.
Yes, you can use frozen blueberries in these. Just make sure to toss them well with flour like the fresh blueberries so they don’t sink while baking.
Don’t you love muffin recipes with a short ingredient list? These are muffins that don’t take any additional prep to whip up. And, I almost guarantee that you’ve got all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. Sift together the dry, whisk together the wet, combine and DONE.
In less than 30 minutes, these blueberry muffins could be yours. What are you waiting for? Get in the kitchen and start baking. xo
