Fresh Blueberry and Greek Yogurt Muffins

Author abountifulkitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries or other berries
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 oz Greek yogurt plain or vanilla flavored ( I prefer plain) or you may use traditional yogurt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees and place rack in center of oven.
  2. Generously grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or use cupcake liners.
  3. In bowl of a mixer, place oils and sugar. Mix for about 1 minute until sugar and fats are incorporated. Don't worry if the coconut oil is still visible in small pieces, it will melt when cooked.
  4. Add eggs, beat for another minute or until incorporated. Mix in the yogurt until blended well.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt all at once. Mix just until flour disappears, about 15-30 seconds on low.
  6. Fold in the berries using a large spoon or spatula.
  7. Using a scoop, evenly distribute the batter into muffin cups. When scooping, generously scoop the batter. The scoop swill be heaping.
  8. Place in oven, bake at 375 for about 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let sit on counter and cool for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Freeze any leftovers for a quick breakfast on a busy morning!

Recipe Notes

-Do not be alarmed, the batter is very thick, similar to cookie dough batter.-Do not over mix the batter and especially make sure to FOLD in the fruit so it will not get crushed before baking.-Use fresh fruit such as blueberries, blackberries, marionberries etc. If you are using frozen fruit, do not thaw before baking. Take from freezer, measure and fold into batter.
