Healthy Blueberry Muffins

These healthy blueberry muffins with applesauce, spelt or whole wheat flour, and fresh blueberries came outfantastic! Just check the comments below for yourself, wow. Moist and light, I highly recommend to make a double batch because both kids and husbands love these. I have warned you! Usually, I prefer to eat my berries fresh, however these muffins deserve even the priciest supermarket January blueberries. Minimum ingredients: whole wheat or spelt flour, applesauce, maple syrup or honey, virtually any oil (healthy widely available options: extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil), eggs, a few handfuls of fresh or frozen blueberries, baking soda + powder, pure vanilla extract and salt. Thats it! 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries is good enough. Frozen blueberries can be used too. My favourite blueberry muffins are with fresh blueberries but not a big deal. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well to combine, making sure baking powder and soda have dissolved. Add flour and stir gently to mix. Do not over mix. Stir a few times and let batter sit for a few seconds to let flour absorb the moisture. Stir again. A few flour patches here and there are fine. Using large ice cream scoop, fill 12 openings with batter. Bake for 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let muffins cool in the tin for at least 30 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack to cool off completely.

If yall knew the shenanigans weve been through these past few days with blueberries!! Ah, blueberry shenanigans. When shall you stop tormenting us? Erik and Ive recently had a ridiculous time hunting down fresh, tasty and, well, non-spoiled blueberries. Everywhere we went, the blueberries were past their edible prime. We searched high and low. We even searched through my moms fridge (Sorry, Mommy!). We even searched through my sister Jennys fridge (Sorry, Jammy!). We even made a pit stop and baked these gluten free banana oat muffins , then these gluten free dark chocolate muffins . For energy, a morale booster, and some good muffin mojo, of course. Guess what? The good muffin mojoworked. We actually found all the fresh blueberries we needed. We bought those. Then we First, I made these delicious blueberry-upgraded muffins,then I started munching on a few warmed-up and totally deliciously melty vegan chocolate chip cookies (if good muffin mojo worked, why not throw in some good cookie mojo?)

Before I began baking, I requested Eriks fine recall powers (he has the best memory ever its pretty annoying) and suggested we rap about reader favorite recipes. Why does it give me so much joy to say rap instead o Continue reading >>

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Our cookbook, Love Real Food, is here! Get your copy Would you look at those blueberry-studded beauties? These blueberry muffins are golden on top, moist and fluffy on the inside. Best of all, theyre bursting with jammy blueberry flavor. These are my favorite homemade blueberry muffins, and its about time you met them. These healthy blueberry muffins are easy to make, too. Forget those box mixes! You can make these wholesome muffins from scratch with basic grocery store ingredients. No special equipment required. What makes these blueberry muffins healthy? These muffins are more healthy than your average blueberry muffins. Theyre made with 100 percent whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat flour, which you can hardly taste). Whole wheat flour offers redeeming whole grain nutrients and extra fiber. The muffins are also naturally sweetened with honey or maple syrup, which lend subtle honey or maple flavor to the muffins. Theyre lower in overall sugar content compared to coffee shop muffins. Last but not least, I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, which lends the same irresistible tang but with more protein and less fat. I dont think that yogurt passes for sour cream on tacos, but it totally works in muffin recipes. You can make these muffins with fresh or frozen blueberries. Do not defrost frozen blueberries before using; just stir the frozen blueberries into the batter as directed. Tossing the blueberries with one teaspoon of flour prevents them from sinking to the bottom. This way, you can use a full cup of blueberries without risking the integrity of the muffins. Sprinkling 1 tablespoon of raw sugar on top of the muffins before baking yields deliciously sweet, crackly muffin tops. You can buy raw sugar in the sugar aisle of most grocery stores these days, o Continue reading >>

The Ultimate Healthy Blueberry Muffins {recipe Video!}

The Ultimate Healthy Blueberry Muffins {recipe Video!}

The Ultimate Healthy Blueberry Muffins {Recipe Video!} An easy recipe for buttery muffins full of big juicy berries. They have the same texture as cupcakesbut none of the guilt! These truly are the BEST! My sophomore year of high school, our marching band flew to Hawaii to spend Spring Break in Honolulu. Our director organized a parade performance one morning in Waikiki, as well as a symphony concert at a school located just a few blocks from our hotel, but he scheduled plenty of free time and fun activities for the rest of our week-long vacation. We attended a comedy show just a few hours after our planes landed at the airport; toured some of the most historic spots in the city by bus, including Iolani Palace, the home of the final monarchs before Hawaii became the 50th state; walked around Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial for almost an entire day; and dined at two different luaus, complete with flaming-baton-twirling hula dancers. Since our hotel lacked a large dining facility that would fit all 250+ band members along with the nearly 50 parent chaperones, our director arranged for us to eat breakfast at a separate buffet-style restaurant a quick two-block walk away. The owner opened the doors for us from 7-9 am each day of our stay, and we could wander over whenever we woke up and felt hungry. Most of the food fell under the traditional Continental Breakfast category, with plenty of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, and hash browns served in hot chafing dishes; bagels and bread for toasting; and lots of fresh fruit. I always looked forward to the big, juicy spears of fresh pineapple! The restaurant also offered a wide selection of pastries, in addition to the bread and bagels, that they set out in large linen-lined wicker baskets. We found croissants (both p Continue reading >>

Brown Sugar Blueberry Muffins

Brown Sugar Blueberry Muffins

Simple, classic, homemade blueberry muffins. If theres one thing that catches my eye when I pass by a bakery, its tall, hearty muffins with sugar crystals dotting the top. Bakery-style muffins have such character. Ill be honest when I say that more than once Ive been so disappointed with a muffin that looked picture perfect. See, Im picky about my muffins. Im not wasting time or calories on a dry, crumbly muffin. It has to be moist. And if you feel the same way as me, have I got a muffin recipe for you! Introducing the brown sugar blueberry muffin. As the name indicates, brown sugar takes center stage in this recipe, keeping the muffins ultra moist. Brown sugar is one of my favorite ingredients to add to baked goods. Not only does it add more moisture than white sugar, but it adds a depth of flavor that will guarantee true love at first bite. And if brown sugar wasnt enough, sour cream adds another level of richness and moisture to this recipe. I can hear the questions already. Can you substitute reduced fat sour cream? Probably, although I havent tried it. Can you substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream? Most likely, but again, I havent tested that yet in this recipe. Let me know if you try it and how it turns out! Theres one other ingredient in this recipe that I dont want you to leave out: turbinado sugar sprinkled on top. What is turbinado sugar? Its a brown cane sugar that is less processed and has large crystals. You can find it in your grocery store in the baking aisle or buy it here . I generously sprinkle those raw sugar crystals on top of each muffin before I bake them. It gives them a bit of a sugary crunch on top. Youll love it. Because I developed this recipe to be super moist, the muffins are not going to bake up very tall. They will dome slightly on t Continue reading >>

How To Reduce Sugar In Muffins: The 50 Percent Solution

How To Reduce Sugar In Muffins: The 50 Percent Solution

recipe: Basic Muffins, Famous Department Store Blueberry Muffins, Banana Bread, Chocolate Breakfast Muffins Many of us enjoy a sweet treat for breakfast. Example: a warm blueberry muffin, straight from the oven, its crackly sugar top the perfect complement to the moist berries and tender cake underneath. Heaven! But with sugar acquiring an increasingly bad nutritional rep, many of us want to know how to reduce sugar in muffins and quick breads (think banana bread), as well. Can you just cut the sugar in your muffin recipe in half? Or leave out a couple of tablespoons? For best results, no. Neither solution takes into account the wide range of muffin recipes out there, ranging from barely sweet to over the top. Reducing sugar by 50 percent in a recipe thats already lower in sugar will leave you with a tasteless treat; and omitting just 2 tablespoons sugar from a recipe that starts with 3/4 cup isnt making a significant difference, calorie-wise. What's the best way to reduce sugar in muffins? The answer is simple (arithmetic). Click To Tweet I recently tested a few muffin recipes using bakers percentage (bakers math) , a simple way to both scale recipes up and down, and to adjust the balance of ingredients within a recipe. Using this method, the weight of the flour is 100%; and other ingredient amounts are shown as a percentage of that, by weight. Dont like arithmetic? Bear with me; this is easy, I promise. Heres an example: If youre making a batch of muffins using 2 cups (8 ounces) whole wheat flour, and youre adding 3 1/2 ounces (1/2 cup) brown sugar, then your sugar level is 44 percent (3 1/2 8 = .44; i.e., 3 1/2 is 44 percent of 8). I decide to take three muffin recipes, assess the initial sugar level of each as the control, then test each recipe four ways: with suga Continue reading >>

Honey-sweetened Blueberry Muffins

Honey-sweetened Blueberry Muffins

JUST IN TIME FOR BLUEBERRY MUFFINS! I love summer food . All those berries, sweet peaches and juicy cherries are so easy to serve as snacks (minus the juicy cleanup) but theres an even better side effect: When I see my three rascals lined up on the counter stools, eating all that fresh goodness I feel like Im doing something right. If you want to split hairs, this bounty is really Mother Natures amazing idea but Ill totally take credit today. (Hey, when Mother Nature shows up with a broom after lunch, thats when Ill really start deferring the high praises.) So as both of my readers know, weve made a lot of muffins chocolate zucchini muffins , banana oat mini muffins , carrot cake muffins , strawberry muffins , even orange pound cake muffins but never the old classic, blueberry muffins. And like alllll those muffin recipes before it, this one is full of the good stuff, like oat bran and applesauce but theres even more something special going on here: not a single crystal of sugar. And these blueberry muffins are still delicious. Heres how we did it. Went to a farmers market and bought a big box of blueberries, per Estelles request for blue blues.

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Healthy blueberry muffins are slowly curing me of my uncanny ability to over complicate. This simple blueberry muffins recipe makes moist and fluffy muffins with whole wheat, heart healthy oats, and as many blueberries as I could squeeze into the batter. They are basically everything a blueberry oatmeal muffin should be. No more. No less. I originally shared this healthy blueberry muffin recipe back in 2015, and it has since become a reader favorite. Adults love that these healthy blueberry muffins are wholesome and made with whole grains. Kids from toddlers to teenagers love that they are tender, buttery, and jam PACKED with blueberries. Come to think of it, I think adults love that these healthy blueberry muffins are tender, buttery, and jam packed with blueberries too.

Travesty! I set out to correct this omission by creating the blueberry muffin of my dreams. Todays healthy blueberry muffins are the result. There is absolutely nothing fancy about them, which, as it turns out, is what makes them perfect in every way. I also almost missed the blueberry muffin recipe completely. When I started working on this healthy blueberry muffin recipe, the first three ingredients I pulled out of my pantry were not blueberries, oatmeal, or applesauce (way too obvious); they were lemon extract, cardamom, and hazelnuts.

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins (low Sugar Recipe)

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins (low Sugar Recipe)

You are here: Home / sweet things / cakes / Greek yogurt blueberry muffins (low sugar recipe) Greek yogurt blueberry muffins (low sugar recipe) Everyone loves a good blueberry muffin, dont they? Enter these super light, moist and airy blueberry muffins made with protein-packed Greek yogurt. And as theyre relatively low sugar, you can enjoyone (or two why not?) guilt free! I received a rare compliment indeed from Mr. Scrummy the other day when I made these Greek yogurt blueberry muffins. He said As you know, Im not much of a muffin man, but I think this was the best muffin Ive ever tasted. It was perfect. Now maybe this isnt saying much coming from someone who isnt really a fan of muffins (how can that be?!), but all the same Im going to take it as a compliment, and as an extravote of confidence that these are good really good. This was one of those recipes that I was expecting to have to experiment with for a while to get right. But to my surprise it actually worked out perfectly first time. I think the thing with muffins is that there is a bit of wiggle room with the ingredients. If you add a tiny bit more or less liquid or sugar, for instance, youll still likely get a decent result, so long as you follow some simple guidelines. Well, nothing earth-shattering but theres nothing wrong with a little reminder! I think the keys to success for these particular Greek yogurt muffins are the following: 1 Dont forget the basic rule of muffin making i.e. keep the dry and wet ingredients separate until the last minute, then mix until barely combined. A few lumps are fine. You just dont want to overmix, get the gluten in the flour all excited and make your muffins tough. 2 Add a tiny bit of milk (about a quarter cup) to thin out the mixture a bit. Using loads of Greek yogurt is g Continue reading >>
