These healthy lemon blueberry muffins are the perfect Sunday morning treat! They’re made with better-for-you ingredients, like whole wheat flour and Greek-style yogurt.
Sometimes, the classics beat out fancy new recipes every time. For me, I would still choose a lemon blueberry muffin over a cronut/red velvet croissant any day! There is just something about the fresh fruit and light citrus flavor that always satisfies.
These healthy lemon blueberry muffins really hit the spot. They have crunchy tops and a soft interior. They’re also easy to make and use readily available ingredients.
What’s in these healthy lemon blueberry muffins?
Here are the main ingredients you need to make these muffins:
White whole wheat flour: This type of flour tends to be lighter and sweeter in flavor than regular whole wheat flour. But, it still holds the benefits of whole wheat flour, like fiber and nutrients.
Frozen blueberries: I prefer to use frozen fruit in the winter, when berries are out of season here in Boston. Frozen blueberries are just as nutritious as fresh, because they are frozen at peak ripeness to retain the nutrients.
Fresh lemon zest and juice: The combination of lemon zest and juice in these muffins really accentuates the delicious lemon flavor.
Siggi’s plant-based coconut blend: This plant-based yogurt replaces oil or butter in this recipe. You would never know this yogurt doesn’t contain dairy! It’s super creamy and tangy. I used the raspberry flavor, to add even more berry deliciousness.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
Use the spoon-and-sweep method to measure flour. This is one of the most accurate ways to measure flour dry instead of using a scale. To do this, use a spoon to fill your measuring cup with flour. Then, level off the flour with the back of a butter knife so it’s flush with the top edge of the measuring cup.
Toss frozen blueberries in flour. This will help prevent the blueberries from bleeding into the batter.
Use fresh lemon: This allows you to use both the juice and the zest, which adds another layer of lemon flavor.
