Moist Blueberry Muffins
I made some blueberry muffins to brighten up your Thursday!
This is kind of a big deal, because I am a self proclaimed non-baker. But I’ve been practicing and practicing, and look at me! I made muffins that look like muffins! It took a few batches, but I finally got it right.
There was an unfortunate “baking powder is too old and these muffins didn’t rise and they look more like blueberry cups than blueberry muffins” situation. Nothing a quick trip to the store can’t fix. I’ve since discovered this great tip by David Lebowitz on how to tell if your baking soda is still good. I’ll be using this a lot in the future.
I was so proud of how these turned out, I rewarded myself by eating 3 of these muffins stat. 2 right after they came out of the oven, and a 3rd for dessert that I split open and toasted in the toaster oven. Both smothered in honey butter of course.
The secret to these muffins is using greek yogurt. It makes these blueberry muffins ultra moist on the inside, but still crispy and brown on the outside. I’ve started to prefer not using muffin liners when making muffins because I love that crispy brown exterior. A good coating of non-stick cooking spray does the trick.
These are great to make in the spring because blueberries don’t cost a million dollars. I used fresh, but you could easily use frozen. If using frozen, don’t thaw the blueberries, just throw them in still frozen with the dry ingredients. This will prevent them from dying your whole batter blue.
Don’t be alarmed if the batter seems dry, they cook up perfectly. You can easily divide the batter into the muffin tin using an ice-cream scoop. That will make the tops look very perfect and round looking. I prefer the craggy top look I got with these blueberry muffins by using 2 spoons to rustically plop in the batter.
Moist Blueberry Muffins
- 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 1-1/4 cups plain greek yogurt
- 1-1/2 cups container fresh blueberries
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with the rack in the middle position. Spray a 12 muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add in blueberries and toss to combine.
- In a separate medium mixing bowl, whisk egg for about 20 seconds until it becomes lighter in color and slightly frothy. Add sugar to the egg and whisk to combine. Then add in butter and whisk to combine. Add greek yogurt, whisking until just combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and gently fold until just combined. The batter should look a little dry and stiff, and there may still be a few pockets of dried flour.
- Divide the batter evenly, and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and an inserted skewer comes out clean. Rotate the muffin tin halfway thru baking.
- Allow to cool for 1 minute, then invert the mufins on a wire rack to cool for a few more minutes.
- Eat warm, or keep an an airtight container for up to 1 week.

The measurement should be at the front of the line. Because the 1 1/4 was separated I only put in a 1/4 cup of yogurt. Very frustrating. I wasted a lot of money.
Sorry it was confusing! Just corrected the recipe so it is even more obvious. Appreciate the feedback.
Just made these with blueberries I picked this morning….they were very good, moist, good flavor. Thanks… using a different recipe, my muffins came out …so dry, night a day.
I love this! And I am so jealous of your fresh-picked blueberries! So glad you enjoyed these muffins. Thank you :)
Made these and they came out very good. followed recipe but was worried because batter was so dry. But turned out yummy and great flavor. Thank you!
I am so happy you liked my blueberry muffins Sarab! The batter is a bit dry, but magically makes a moist, flavorful muffin.
Taste was good, but far too much flour. I ended up having to add half a cup of milk once mixed. Batter was concrete after following recipe. I’d suggest a half-cup or more less flour and adding more as consistency requires.
Bummed your batter didn’t turn out well. I haven’t had that experience but I sure appreciate your feedback and tip Liz! :)
Unfortunately these didn’t turn out for me. The sourness of the yogurt is noticeable and it’s not quite the texture I’m used to. They also didn’t rise correctly and it was a brand new container of baking powder. I think it needed an extra component of baking soda, maybe teaspoon or so. Thanks for the recipe but I’m going to stick to the Jordan Marsh recipe.
Well shoot! I am so bummed my blueberry muffins didn’t turn out well for you Patrick. I know how frustrating it is to try a new recipe and not enjoy it. Thanks so much for the feedback.
Incredible recipe! I have been looking for a good blueberry muffin recipe for a long time. Love that it has a hint of scone taste/texture. Thank you!
I am so glad you liked my blueberry muffin recipe Claire! I love that they tasted like a scone, that is what I was striving for! I so appreciate the feedback.
Didn’t love these. Texture is not light and fluffy – more dense and gluey. Flavor is also one dimensional. Fun and easy to try though.
Well shoot, I am so sorry my muffins didn’t turn out well for you. I understand what effort it takes to try out a new recipe and it sure is disappointing when it doesn’t turn out.
So so so so good!
I am so happy you liked my muffins Rachel! I am amazed at all the baking we are all doing while sheltering in our homes! It sure helps pass the time.
I mixed up the dough and it was so dry I couldn’t imagine they would come out right. I mixed another egg and some milk and added it to the dough. They came out fantastic!
I am so glad you liked my blueberry muffins! Thanks so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it!
They look good and sound so delicious. That color is really very pretty and tempting.
Thank you! Hope you love them when you try them!
Delicious! And easy too! I messed up by adding sugar to flour, but all worked out great. This has become my favourite Blueberry recipe… now, what else can I add? ?
Yea! I’m so glad you liked them! Thank you Maggie!
Made these this morning for my kids’ birtbday. A big hit!
I am so happy to hear you liked them! What a special treat for your kids birthday! So honored my recipe made the cut. Thank you for letting me know!
I just made them and turned out delicious, really soft and moist. I had them in the oven for about 5-6 minutes longer because they were still a touch too raw after 30 minutes. I used frozen blueberries and they started to colour the batter a little which actually made them even prettier…
So glad you liked them! Thanks for letting me know Krete. Frozen berries work perfect for this!
Blueberry muffins are one of the things that I can’t ever get enough with. The more I eat the more I desire for more xD

These are amazing! I will never make any other blueberry muffin recipe again. For anyone reading, Make these you’ll love them.
I’m so glad you liked them Isadora! You made my day!
Finally a moist muffin recipe. Omg, these are incredible. I made raspberry and white chocolate instead, and they are so freakin’amaing! Definitely saving this recipe. Thank you!
I’m so glad you liked them Kim! Raspberry white chocolate sounds amazing! I want to try that next time. Thanks for letting me know you liked my recipe, you made my day!
I was so proud to present these wonderfully endulgent muffins to my employees for a job well done! I did use French vanilla Greek yogurt since that was what had on hand. Midway through the baking process I sprinkled the tops with fine sugar. Perfection! Thanks so much for sharing!
This makes me SOOO happy! I bet you made your employees day. What a nice boss you are! And I love your idea of sprinkling the tops with sugar. Yum! Thanks for taking the time to let me know you liked my recipe. Made my day!
There are a number of reasons for acne; hence it has numerous treatments too.
If an individual has longer hair, then try to prevent it from touching a person’s skin. Let’s face it, acne products aren’t cheap and
they aren’t something you use one time either.
I have made this recipe at least 10 times now and all 12 muffins are eaten by my family of 3 within 24 hours! The last 2 times I have made them, I have also made the honey butter and the honey butter makes them completely irresistible! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
I’m so happy to hear that Becki! This made my day!!! My husband loves these muffins. I should surprise him and make them for him again. You’re so nice to take the time to let me know you like my recipe. Big hugs to you!
