Tips

  • When you add the blueberries to the batter all at once, they have a tendency to sink to the bottom. Drop a couple of blueberries on top of each portion of batter in the muffin tin to minimize this.
  • Once you add the blueberries to the muffin batter, lightly swirl to mix and avoid over mixing.
  • While this recipe calls for plain Greek yogurt, you can also use vanilla Greek yogurt or even regular plain yogurt as long as it’s not too watery.
  • Although you can use any whole wheat flour you like, white whole wheat flour works particularly well.
  • When mixing the dry and wet ingredients together, fold together until just combined. There may be some dry flour spots visible, and the batter may be lumpy, but do not over mix, or the Blueberry oat muffins will end up too dense.
  • Always mix the dry and wet ingredients in separate mixing bowls.
  • For extra flavorful blueberry muffins, cook some blueberries to concentrate their flavor and make a quick jam. Swirl this jam into each portion of batter in the muffin tin individually to avoid getting a highly colored batter.
  • For consistent results, use a kitchen scale to weigh the dry and wet ingredients accurately every time and measuring spoons to measure the quantities accurately.
  • Measure the muffin batter using a large cookie scoop, cupcake scoop, ice cream scoop, or measuring cup to divide it equally among the muffin cups.
  • If you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, you can also make these blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries instead. Just take some frozen blueberries and fold them in the batter without thawing.
  • Drizzle the cooked muffins with some lemon glaze, or use a lemony streusel topping before baking for delectable Lemon blueberry muffins.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners or grease it with a nonstick cooking spray before setting it aside.
  2. Then add the Greek yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla, and honey to a medium-sized bowl or liquid measuring cup and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to a separate large bowl and whisk everything together. Then add the blueberries and toss until combined.
  4. Mix the yogurt mixture and 4 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil with the dry ingredients and stir to combine while avoiding over mixing.
  5. Pour the batter into the muffin cups evenly and place the muffin tin in the preheated oven. Bake for about 14-17 minutes, or until the tops spring back lightly when touched.
  6. Give the tin a few minutes to cool, and then transfer it to a cooling rack to allow it to cool completely. Remove the healthy blueberry muffins from the muffin tin and enjoy.

Are Blueberry Muffins Healthy?

While regular blueberry muffins are usually not considered healthy, these oat blueberry muffins definitely are due to their low fat and cholesterol content and relatively high protein and fiber. The addition of oat and blueberry makes this recipe particularly healthy, as oat is very nutrient-rich and filling, and blueberries are known for their antioxidant properties and immune support.

Are Blueberry Muffins Vegan?

You can easily make these healthy blueberry muffins vegan by using a vegan Greek yogurt in place of Greek yogurt and substituting milk and eggs with soy milk and applesauce, respectively. Use coconut oil instead of butter, and replace honey with maple syrup or agave nectar if you exclude honey from your diet.
