Healthy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins
Are you doing extra baking while being stuck at home? We have been doing a little bit of baking around here- banana bread, birthday cake, cookies and now blueberry muffins. My three year old Oliver made these muffins with me. I love making muffins because they are easy to make and can actually be a healthy treat! These Healthy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins are very easy to make and mostly use pantry ingredients that you may already have on hand.

These Healthy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins are not dry at all and are perfectly moist (sorry, they are!). I've made them with fresh and frozen blueberries and either will work just fine. I used plain Greek yogurt in this recipe but you could also use blueberry Greek yogurt if you want more blueberry flavor and a bit more sweetness. Or just lightly reduce the amount of honey/syrup you use if you use the sweetened yogurt. Vanilla would work as well.

I have to warn you, your family will love these. Like 16 of these disappeared in one morning. The kids ate them for breakfast and for snack time. I'm happy to have found a healthy snack that they enjoy so much and that aren't hard to make.

Healthy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins Ingredients

-White whole-wheat flour- my favorite flour for baking because it gives you the nutrients in whole wheat flour but has more of a white flour taste and texture
-Eggs
-Milk of choice
-Maple syrup or honey (or even pancake syrup)
-Vanilla
-Butter
-Greek yogurt
-Baking powder
-Frozen blueberries- feel free to use fresh if you have them

You can make these blueberry muffins for a snack, for breakfast or even for a dessert. My kids absolutely love them! They will eat a few in a row if allowed. Perfect for people of all ages! I love to pair mine with a hot cup of coffee in the afternoon.

I baked these muffins in my favorite muffin cup tin from Chicago Metallic. Nothing sticks in these and the muffins come out beautifully. I also used Chicago Metallic silicone baking cups. For all of the muffins that I make, I cannot believe that I have never had these before. They make such a difference! I hate when some of my muffin is wasted by getting stuck to a paper muffin liner and these are amazing because nothing sticks to them.
