How to Make The Best Blueberry Muffins
These blueberry muffins are easy and quick with a moist and tender center bursting with blueberries and perfectly golden brown top. They are extra easy to make, too.
Fresh or frozen blueberries work in this recipe. It’s tricky to find sweet fresh blueberries all year round. Thankfully, this doesn’t prevent us from getting our blueberry muffin fix! When using frozen blueberries, add them when they are still frozen. You can use 100% whole wheat flour or a combination of whole wheat and all-purpose flour, though
We use all-purpose flour. A gluten-free flour blend also works. Just keep in mind that changing the flour from all-purpose will affect the texture of the muffins slightly.
Granulated sugar helps to make the blueberry muffins flavorful and tender. You can swap for other sugars (brown sugar or coconut sugar, for example), but the texture of the bread will change slightly. I also love adding a sprinkle of sugar to the muffin tops just before baking, which turns into a crackly top.
Oil is my favorite fat to use when making these blueberry muffins. I usually use butter when baking since I love the flavor, but after testing these muffins with both oil and butter, we found that the oil made more tender muffins. If you are dairy-free, milk alternatives like unsweetened almond or coconut milk will work, though
Milk is my go-to liquid for baking muffins.
Egg provides stability and structure to the muffins. We use one egg. If you do not eat eggs, you can try using a flax egg instead.
Baking powder is our go-to leavener for these blueberry muffins.
vanilla and Salt extract add flavor to the bread and make them taste amazing.
