Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Posted on July 2nd, 2020 by Caitlyn Miller

These are the best healthy blueberry muffins that are filled with blueberries in every bite! This is a refined sugar free recipe that contains yogurt to make these muffins extremely moist and tasty. These muffins are also gluten free thanks to the almond flour. These are a great breakfast option or snack. 

It’s blueberry season here in Georgia and that means I am craving everything blueberry! My son and I went to a local farm and picked some blueberries fresh off the bushes. I came home and immediately knew I was going to be using these bad boys to create amazing tasty muffins! I have been on a bit of a muffin kick lately, but wanted to eat something that wouldn’t take up most of my calories for the day. This is how these healthy blueberry muffins came to be! 

Ingredients

These blueberry muffins are full of nutritious ingredients and don’t require any kind of fancy ingredients. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • almond flour (you can use all purpose, but then they won’t be gluten free)
  • baking powder 
  • ground cinnamon
  • raw sugar (pure maple syrup works as well!)
  • salt 
  • applesauce 
  • almond milk (cow’s milk works as well)
  • eggs
  • yogurt (I used whole milk, but greek yogurt will work too)
  • vanilla extract 
  • blueberries 

Just look at how good these look?! All those blueberries are calling my name! What I really love about these healthy blueberry muffins are not only are they healthy, but they also are gluten free and can easily be switched to dairy free when switching the yogurt type. These muffins are the ONLY muffins I have ever had with this many blueberries in them and I am 100% a fan! 

Tips for making blueberry muffins 

  1. Make sure you spray the inside of your muffin liners with nonstick cooking spray to prevent muffins from sticking too much.
  2. If you want to make this recipe 100% dairy free, be sure to switch the yogurt type to either almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk.
  3. Be sure to FOLD the blueberries into the batter to prevent breaking the blueberries open and turning your batter purple.

How to store these muffins

You can store the muffins in an airtight container to either sit on a counter or you can put them in the fridge. I would suggest eating all these within a week of making them.
