Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins

I cannot tell you how many muffin posts are on this blog…well, I could, but it would take entirely too long to count them all. We love them. The kids always want some form of chocolate muffin, and even though I’m a chocolate freak, my absolute favorite muffin is blueberry. The other day I was really craving them…

Real blueberry muffins. No frills, no added crumb topping (even though I love those too), I just wanted a really good, really blueberry muffin.

I went searching through my breakfast Pinterest board and found this recipe that had blueberries, Greek yogurt and whole wheat.
They were so healthy, I didn’t feel guilty about slathering on a little butter 🙂 Or eating more than one. Or two. Or…let’s not talk about it, let’s just say craving satisfied.

Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins

2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (can use a mix of all purpose and whole wheat too)
1/2 cup sugar (may want a little more if blueberries are not very sweet)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 heaping cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup applesauce (I used unsweetened)
1/4 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
pecans, coarsely chopped (optional, for tops)
raw sugar (optional, for tops)

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Generously grease a muffin pan, or use cupcake liners. Spray the liners well with non-stick spray if using. (*important*)
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the yogurt, applesauce, milk, egg, and vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix just until combined.
  • Fold in blueberries. Mixture will be thick.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4ths full.
  • Top with pecans and raw sugar if using. I sprinkled a little wheat germ on mine as well.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned and done.
