Easy Blueberry Muffins For A Breakfast Treat

Let’s talk about one of my favorite baked goods, Blueberry Muffins. You can go to the store and buy muffins, but nothing tastes as good as making them yourself. Maybe you are a little intimidated by making your muffins or you have never made them before, then this recipe is for you. 

Blueberry Muffins 

I want to teach you my recipe for making muffins because I think you’ll love them. If you are in the mood for a quick snack and want to make something from scratch, this recipe is for you. 

Are you craving something sweet, tangy, and utterly satisfying? Look no further than these Easy Blueberry Muffins! With bursts of fruity flavor, a tender crumb, and a touch of vanilla, these muffins are your go-to for a quick breakfast or a scrumptious snack. The best part? They’re incredibly easy to make and perfect for all occasions!


Can I use frozen blueberries?

Absolutely, but keep in mind that frozen berries might bleed into the batter a bit, resulting in a slightly different color.

Is it necessary to use both baking powder and baking soda?

Yes, this ensures that the muffins rise perfectly and have a great texture. Just be sure to follow the measurements closely.

What can I substitute for brown sugar?

You can use white sugar, but brown sugar gives the muffins a deeper, more caramel-like flavor.

What ingredients do you need for Blueberry Muffins?

All-purpose flour – You probably knew that this recipe included all-purpose flour already. Without this flour, your muffins just wouldn’t taste as good. 

Baking soda and baking powder – Essential ingredients to making Blueberry Muffins include baking soda and baking powder. 

Vanilla extract – Ah, one of my favorites in this recipe. Vanilla extract helps make the muffins taste sweet and gives them that perfect flavor. 

Vanilla yogurt – This recipe calls for vanilla yogurt and I can understand why it makes it so good! You can also sub Greek yogurt or any other flavor.

Blueberries – Don’t forget those fresh or frozen blueberries that this recipe calls for. You can even go to the blueberry field to pick fresh ones if you live close to one! Fresh blueberries are always the best.  Blueberries are one of my favorite berries because they are so insanely versatile!

This recipe also calls for melted butter, brown sugar, and milk! Each ingredient helps to contribute to making these blueberry muffins the best that you’ve ever had.  Blueberry muffins are such a great classic breakfast muffin with with your coffee or tea!

Tips and Tricks

  • Gently fold in the blueberries at the end to avoid crushing them.
  • For a lighter texture, sift the flour and other dry ingredients before mixing.
  • Don’t overmix the batter; a few lumps are okay and help achieve the desired crumb texture.


Gluten-Free option

Swap the all-purpose flour for a gluten-free blend to make these muffins gluten-free.

Dairy-Free option

Use plant-based milk and a dairy-free yogurt to make a completely dairy-free version.

Where to Serve

  • Brunches or breakfasts
  • Afternoon tea or coffee breaks
  • Picnics
  • As a quick grab-and-go snack


Store these in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or refrigerate for up to a week. For longer storage, you can freeze them; just thaw and reheat before serving.

Topping Options

  • A sprinkle of coarse sugar will add a nice crunch.
  • A lemon glaze made from lemon juice and powdered sugar will bring out the blueberries’ tanginess.

Why This Recipe Works

This recipe is the epitome of balance and simplicity:

  • The blend of brown sugar and vanilla creates a warm, aromatic flavor.
