These Blueberry Yogurt Muffins are the perfect snack! Make these delicious yogurt muffins with fresh or frozen blueberries.
make blueberry muffins even better with yogurt!
Blueberry muffins are one of my absolute favorite afternoon snacks. I made the recipe even better by mixing in a bit of plain yogurt.
The yogurt adds some extra calcium and protein to the muffins. Not to mention that the yogurt makes these blueberry yogurt muffins are super moist!
If you use plain Greek yogurt, you will add even more protein to the muffins. Greek yogurt muffins will be slightly more dense than those made with regular yogurt.
Make a batch of yogurt muffins for meal prep. Then, serve them alongside breakfast or as a snack!

Muffins are one of my absolute favorite afternoon snacks. I like to have one with a homemade cold brew coffee.
They are perfect for meal prep. I like to make a batch at the beginning of the week and bring one each day as a mid morning or afternoon snack. They are also perfect for kids lunches!
Can I make mini muffins?
Yes! Just use a mini muffin pan in place of a standard muffin tin. The muffin cups will be smaller so you be able to make more mini muffins than standard size and they will bake faster.
Check to see if the mini muffins are done after they have baked for about 18 minutes at 350F.
- Plain yogurt – I like to use plain greek yogurt because of its high protein content.
- Eggs – two large eggs give the muffins the perfect rise and lift.
- Vegetable oil – I like to use avocado oil or melted coconut oil when I make this blueberry muffin recipe, but you can use any oil you like or even melted butter.
- Vanilla extract – a little bit of vanilla extract adds just the right amount of nuance and depth of flavor to the muffins
- Sugar – I find the granulated sugar results in the perfect muffin sweetness and texture. You can use honey or maple syrup instead, but you will want to add a little more flour to account for the extra moisture.
- All purpose flour – I prefer plain all purpose flour, but you can use white whole wheat flour for a little more fiber.
- Baking soda and baking powder – these two leavening agents help give the muffins a lovely domed muffin top.
- Salt – just a pinch of salt brings out the sweet flavor.
- Fresh or frozen blueberries – I prefer fresh blueberries, but frozen work just as well.
- Optional: brown sugar or turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top before baking – the extra sugar gives the muffins a slightly crispy and shiny top.
It is very easy to make these muffins gluten free. Just use an all purpose gluten free flour blend in place of the all purpose flour.
I like to use plain yogurt for these yogurt muffins, but you could also use a vanilla yogurt or even a lemon yogurt. Make Greek yogurt muffins by using Greek yogurt. They will be slightly more dense, but very moist and delicious.
You can add some lemon zest or ground cinnamon to these muffins to add to the depth of flavor.
If you use frozen blueberries, rinse them in a strainer and then dry them off before folding into the batter. This prevents them from bleeding color into the entire muffin.
