If you follow along with the Real Food Meal Plans, you probably noticed this week’s breakfast menu consists of homemade blueberry muffins on both Monday and Friday.

I absolutely love blueberry muffins. Perfectly domed muffins packed with blueberries and bursting with flavor. These muffins are the perfect flavor combo of tart lemons and sweet blueberries! They are also super easy to make, in fact, my 3 year-old can make them wonderfully, with a little mommy assistance. They also freeze perfectly for that busy weekday morning.

I will warn you they do have sugar, sucanat. But, for the 1/2 cup of sugar used, you will get around 16 muffins. So, don’t stress, the amount of sugar is very low when divided between all those glorious muffins. Store bought muffins, even the $3 gourmet versions, are going to pack a lot more sugar, not to mention many fake additives. I’ll take the homemade 1/2 cup sugar muffins any day.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin tin or line with muffin liners.
  • Mix together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl (I use my Kitchen-Aid), beat the butter, honey, and sugar, eggs, yogurt, lemon zest and juice.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Gently, fold in the blueberries.
  • Spoon the batter (I use this little gadget) into muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes until lightly brown on top.

    These are fabulous! I used 2 5.5-oz. containers low fat Greek yogurt – one plain and one vanilla – a drizzle of honey, and a raw sugar/stevia blend as that’s what I had. A little 1-percent milk at the end made up for the yogurt and honey shortage. Texture was great, lemon hint yummy!

    1. Hey Renee, I recommend using a dairy-free plain yogurt, like almond or cashew milk. Another option may be coconut milk (canned not the carton beverages).

  2. Made these muffins last night and before I could pull them out of the oven my Shih Tzu was lined up ready to sample whatever was smelling up the kitchen. They were great and even better the next morning with coffee and an egg. Tfs ????

    Made these this morning, so yummy! I even soaked the flour for them last night! Turned out great! I did have to adjust cook time and temperature.

    I made these last week they turned out totally awesome! So moist and full of flavor. Today I wanted something chocolate so I decided to make them again and I substituted the blueberries for chocolate chips and left out the lemon. They were so yummy! Works as a great sweet treat!

    1. Hey Shelley, I’m so glad you enjoyed the blueberry muffins! I love the idea of adding chocolate chips in place of the blueberries and lemon…my kids would love this addition too :). Thank you for the great suggestion.

    I have made many wholewheat blueberry muffin recipes and this one is BY FAR the best I’ve tried! Thank you for the delicious recipe 🙂

  6. Made these the other day and they are heavenly. I’m going to make some more today how much flax seed do you put in them?
