Why You’ll Love This Blueberry Muffins Recipe

You are going to love these soft, buttery and moist blueberry muffins. There is no need for an electric mixer and the muffin batter comes together by hand in mere minutes. Because they are so quick and simple to make, they are the perfect treat to whip up any day of the week for breakfast, snack time or dessert.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that I generally like to keep things as healthy as possible. However, I’ve said before that pleasure and health go hand in hand. Healthy eating can definitely include partaking in a reasonable amount of desserts and calories. So this is one of those recipes for times when you feel like treating yourself and indulging. Portion size and frequency are important concepts to keep in mind, so enjoy recipes like this one in moderation. 🙂

One thing you can feel good about is since these muffins are homemade, you know exactly what’s inside the batter. This makes them better for you than most pre-packaged muffins that are available at the store. In addition, this blueberry muffin recipe is made with unrefined coconut sugar, so it is refined sugar-free.

Tips for Making The Best Blueberry Muffins

Here are a few pointers for baking the best blueberry muffins at home:

  • Preheat the oven: Do not forget to preheat your oven first. Preheating is a vital step, because it promotes adequate rise in your muffins. If you neglect preheating your oven, you will also have to bake your muffins for longer than listed on the recipe, which can ruin the texture of the muffins.
  • Don’t over-mix: To ensure you have light and fluffy muffins, mix the wet and dry ingredients until just incorporated and no more than that. Over-mixing the batter will result in tough, dense muffins.
  • Use a scoop: I recommend using an ice cream scoop to portion the batter into the muffin pan cups. This will ensure an equal amount of batter in each cup.
  • Test for doneness: See if your muffins are done baking by doing a poke test on the inside. To do this, stick the center of a muffin with a wooden toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins have finished baking and can be removed from the oven.

Use the simple tips above to ensure your muffins turn out perfect every single time! If you want to learn more recommendations for making the absolute best muffins, check out this helpful article from Tasting Table.

How to Freeze Homemade Blueberry Muffins

You can freeze these homemade blueberry muffins for up to three months. Here is how to do it: Once the muffins are done baking, allow them to cool off completely. Then, place each muffin in a freezer-safe zipped-top bag or container and pop them in the freezer.

When ready to eat, thaw the muffins in the refrigerator or out on the counter. To warm up, microwave the muffins on high for about 20 seconds or bake at 300°F (149°C) for 5-10 minutes.

    These muffins literally just came out of my oven and they look just like yours, and I bet they taste just like yours! AMAZING! Thank you for the recipe, it will definitely be my go-to recipe for blueberry muffins. 🙂

    1. Hi there! Oh yay! I am so glad you made them!! Yes I took those photos when the muffins were fresh out of the oven. You are very welcome, I am so happy you liked the recipe! 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    Great muffin recipe! If you dust the blueberries with cornflour or a little bit of flour they won’t all sink. 🙂

    1. Hi Carol! Absolutely, you can generally substitute regular sugar for coconut sugar in a 1:1 ratio in pretty much any baking recipe. I just like using coconut sugar, because it is less processed than granulated white sugar.

    Absolutely perfect. I used my 6 muffin jumbo tins. They came out perfect at 22 minutes. The only sugar I had on hand was powered. But it worked beautifully. The only other change I made was to mix 2t of regular sugar and 2t of brown sugar and dust the top of the muffins before baking them. It made for a nice crunch on the top. Give it a try.

    1. Hi Susan, thank you so much for your kind words! I’m very happy you enjoyed my blueberry muffins recipe. Thank you for the tip as well! 🙂

    My first blueberry muffins in many years as a 73 year old man. I must say they turned out better than expected…even my wife was impressed. I did use more blueberries, approximately 1 1/2 cups. I appreciate the ease of preparation. Here are my questions for you: If my muffin liners stuck to the muffins, is this due to too much moisture or cheap paper cups? Should I use two paper cups? Any help is appreciated.

    1. Hi Russell, thank for your comment! I’m very happy that you enjoyed my blueberry muffins recipe. Personally, I’ve never had an issue with my muffin liners sticking, but I do have a few tips to prevent that from happening. First, make sure that you use high-quality liners. Second, spray the liners with non-stick cooking spray or brush with a little melted butter. Third, allow the muffins to cool for a few minutes in the pan, then remove them and place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling. The residual heat can cause the liners to stick. Last, let the muffins cool completely before removing the liners. You could also place the muffins in the fridge for an hour or so, to ensure they are cool and will release easily. I hope that helps! 🙂

        I made your blueberry muffins and had unexpected results…my wife liked them and that is a #1 compliment.

        I have made your banana bread with better than expected results…as my wife was also very impressed.

        The stores are practically giving away strawberries. Do you have some recipes I can make with strawberries? I’m a 73 year old male with too much free time. I upgraded my muffin liners and no more sticking.

        1. Hi Russell, that’s great to hear! Yes, I have some very easy recipes that are made using strawberries. Here they are: Creamy Strawberry Milk Popsicles, Strawberry Protein Shake, Strawberry Overnight Oats with Yogurt, Strawberry Spinach Salad with Balsamic Dressing, and Strawberry Banana Smoothie. You can find them all on my blog using the search box. Please let me know what you think of them if you do decide to try them out! 🙂

            I’ve been making banana and strawberry smoothies about 50 years. Thanks for your help.

    I enjoyed the blueberry muffins again. I had to let the muffin batter sit for 3 hours…how bad did I mess up?

  6. 5 stars
    If I leave the muffin batter out for several hours…what happens? Does it affect the the baking?

    Thanks very much,

    Russell
