Fresh Blueberries

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, just thaw them first. Because frozen berries are so delicate, the muffins will be more purple thanks to the bursting berries, but they taste just as good!

How do I make vegan blueberry muffins?

These low calorie and healthy muffins are naturally egg free and vegan as long as you use a dairy free milk (such as almond milk or oat milk) in the recipe. The baking powder makes them super fluffy – no need for flax eggs!

Blueberry muffin ingredients

The simple recipe calls for just a few basic ingredients, most of which can probably be found in your pantry. If you want to make fat free muffins, you can sub the oil for applesauce, yogurt, or mashed banana. I’ve had success using spelt, oat, white (all purpose), or gluten free all purpose flour for gluten free blueberry muffins. I haven’t tried almond or coconut flour in this recipe, but be sure to report back if you try.

(If you’re looking for a healthy muffin recipe with almond flour and no sugar, try these Keto Muffins.)

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Soft healthy blueberry muffins that are perfect for breakfast or snack.
4.83/5 (12)
Total Time 21 minutes
Yield 12 -14 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 4 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp oil or almond butter, or mashed banana, yogurt, or applesauce for fat-free
  • 2 cups spelt, white, oat, or gf all purpose flour (for flourless, make these Keto Blueberry Muffins)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and optional pinch cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
  • sugar of choice (see note below)
  • 1 1/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (165g blueberries)

Instructions

  • For muffins, you only need 1/2 cup sugar for the entire recipe. For blueberry cupcakes, simply increase sugar to 3/4 cup. Xylitol can be used for sugar-free muffins.
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or line a muffin tin. In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients except blueberries. Pour wet into dry, and stir until just evenly mixed. If batter is dry (which might happen if you pack the flour too much, especially if using white), add just a little more milk. Gently stir in berries only until evenly mixed. It’s important to not over-stir, which could break the berries. Pour into the muffin tins and bake 21 minutes. Muffins should look perfectly domed when you take them out. Allow to sit 10 minutes before removing from the tins. If you let them sit–loosely covered–overnight, the liners peel off easily the next day too.

    Wow, Katie! You look stunning in that picture! 🙂 I was trying to figure what to do with the GIANT box of blueberries sitting in my fridge… Now, I’m going to make these.

  2. Alison @ Daily Moves and Grooves says

    Mmm I love some good blueberry muffins. They are definitely one of my favorites!
    I don’t go the farmer’s market nearly as much as I’d like, but when I get the chance, I love it! Fresh, local produce? Doesn’t get much better than that 🙂

  3. Anonymous says

    I have that shirt! (the one you are wearing in the picture) Did you get it at Forever 21?? These blueberry muffins look awesome! 🙂

  4. sd says

    Can I sub regular flour for spelt flour? In this and/or any case?
    Also, how about subbing ALL of the oil for applesauce?
    p.s. I asked a while ago if I could use your recipe for black bean brownies for a school project… It was awesome! Nobody could guess what was the “secret ingredient” (I told them after they couldn’t guess) and thought that they were one of the best things they ever had! You are a genius, I love your recipes… yeah. Thanks so much.
    I hope to try a few of your zucchini recipes out, b/c our garden has been giving us so many! (not that I mind)

  5. Lisa says

    This looks amazing! I wish I went to the farmer’s market more often…somehow we always manage to hit one when on vacation, but not when we’re at home! I always love the beautiful, gorgeous, mouth-watering displays of fresh fruit and veggies (and of course the samples everyone is giving away!). Thanks for sharing!

  6. Lily says

    Wow, Katie! You are so beautiful, and those muffins look scrumptious! I haven’t actually ever been to a farmer’s market. I really want to, but I haven’t gotten the chance yet 🙂 I have a quick question, what brand of spelt flour do you use? 🙂

  7. lindsay says

    Fun fact I learned a few weeks ago! I was on a camping trip and we were getting shuttled to the site, and we passed blueberry fields with literally 100s of people picking blueberries on one side of the road, and a robot picking blueberries on the other side of the road. The driver explained to us that in order to go to a farmer’s market, produce must be hand picked, whereas it can be picked by machine to go to the grocery story. That’s why the produce is always so perfect at the farmer’s market, all the bad ones get weeded out! Everyone else probably knew this… but I didn’t.

  8. emily says

    Darn it! I just made a bunch of blueberry muffins this morning… and I doubt they were healthy 🙁 should’ve waited a day!!

  9. Ariana Taylor-Stanley says

    Hi Katie, Thanks for your great recipes! I have become a devotee.

    About farmers markets – as a farmer and farmers market shopper (hmm, every other week?), I wanted to stand up for the fair prices most farmers are able to offer! At least in my region, the average prices at farmers markets are better than those in grocery stores. Here is an interesting assessment from Seattle’s Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance: http://www.seattlefarmersmarkets.org/ripe-n-ready/are-the-farmers-markets-really-more-expensive

    In any case, thanks for plugging local farms and supporting us with your blueberry dollars!

    Who says that farmer’s markets are candy stores for just grown ups? ;P I’m a teenager and I love them, too. My family and I try to go every Saturday. Even if it’s just for the peaches. 😉
    The blueberry muffins looks fantastic. How do you get your muffins to not look all blue/gray-ish? Mine always turn out like that, and although they are still yummy, they don’t look very appetizing.

  11. KonaGirl says

    They look great! I feel like I’m playing catch-up with your blog. There are so many recipes on here I can’t wait to try. I should put the newest posts/ideas on the top of my list so that any response to the recipe can be timely, but there are so many older posts I came across when I first found your site that I’ve been waiting to get to,.. For now, I ‘ll just say–can’t wait to try it.

    I love farmer’s markets. Whenever I travel, I love to visit the local FM. I think FM’s reveal a great deal about the character of a community. I also like to attend FM’s during different times of the day and take note of how the crowd changes. In the town where I grew up we had a great FM. There were always two distinct crowds–the early birds who arrived as soon as the market opened, most vying for a chance to purchase coveted portobello mushrooms (they ran out w/n the first hour) and the later crowd that appreciated the social scene, strolling through the market, coffee in hand, and catching up with regulars. I like going to a FM with no plan of what to buy, purchasing what suits my fancy at the moment, and then figuring out what to do with it on the fly. It feels like an adventure.

  12. trajayjay says

    I used to go every Saturday, idk why i stopped. Probably b/c it was expensive. Funny, someone told me that they’re usually cheaper. I like to buy purple potatoes. I love buying produce whose color is different than normal. There was also some mediterranean guy who sold baklava (I’d like to see you make your version of that). I really do like the farmers market.

  13. Hannah Elizabeth says

    Okay…I know this is a dumb question, but I’ve asked so many different people and never understood the answers they gave me, so I thought I’d try again. I’m just not “getting” this hashtag thing. I’ve seen them growing popular, but I still don’t understand what the hashtags actually *mean*. Could someone please try to explain it…or is it one of these things you just have to pick up as you experience it?

    • AnonymousGirl22 says

      Hashtags are used in Twitter as a way of ‘grouping’ -I guess?- different tweets. For example, if you want to know everything about, I don’t know, the Teen Choice Awards, there will probably be a hashtag called “#teenchoiceawards2013″. Here’s what a tweet with that hashtag would look like: ” the #teenchoiceawards2013 were a success! Thank you all for voting!” So… let’s say you wanted to see all the tweets of someone feeling like a #kidinacandystore, 😉 you would just search for that hashtag and all the tweets containing that hashtag would appear right in front of your eyes. It usually only works on twitter, but it’s so fun, people sometimes #getcarriedawaywithhashtags. 😉 😀

  14. Melanie says

    I was seriously craving blueberry muffins, but didn’t realize I was out of spelt flour. I made these using 1 1/4 c oat flour, 3/4 c almond flour and tbsp of coarse flax seed and kept the rest of the recipe the same and they were very fluffy and yummy!

  15. Marissa says

    I was trying to find a healthy blueberry muffin recipe the other day. Then I saw you posted this today! So excited to try it!!!

    P.S. I have a slight obsession with your blog ever since I discovered it about a month ago. Thank you so much for sharing these recipes!

  16. Kate says

    These look so good! I used to go to the farmers market every Saturday when I was in college but since moving home I can’t find one locally. I love going even if I don’t buy anything. I feel like you get to know the farmers and you can meet new people.

  17. Diane says

    I’m curious Katie, if one uses Spelt flour does that mean the recipe would be gluten free? I’m not familiar with Spelt flour and don’t know where to buy it.

    • Krys says

      Spelt flour isn’t gluten free, but it is lower gluten. It’s also far more nutritious than regular wheat flour. 🙂

  18. Lara says

    I go to the farmers’ market every week, usually twice. I get 90% of my food from there. Part of the lifestyle in this country!
    Loooooove your blog. I made your secret peanut butter cookies yesterday.

  19. Trilby Bias says

    How do you think they’d turn out if I substitute whole wheat pastry flour for the spelt flour? Do you think I can get away with using defrosted blueberries rather than fresh blueberries?
