Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 360 °F / 180 °C / 160 °C fan oven.
  • Combine egg, Greek yogurt, olive or vegetable oil, honey, the juice from a lemon and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.
  • Add white whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder salt and the zest from two lemons, and stir to combine all the ingredients.
  • Add blueberries and optionally any other add-ins that you like, and stir them in gently. Avoid whisking fast, as you don’t want the berries to burst and change the color of the muffin batter.
  • Line a muffin pan with muffin liners, and use a spoon to divide the batter between the liners. Fill them until they are almost full.
  • Bake the muffins in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffins come out clean.
  • Leave the muffins to cool down before removing them from the muffin pan to serve.

Notes

  • If your blueberries are particularly large, you can coat them in a thin layer of flour before adding them to the muffin batter. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffin cases while they bake.
  • Only mix and whisk the ingredients until they are just combined. Over mixing can make the muffins tough.
  • Gently add the blueberries to the mix. Avoid bursting the berries, as this will cause them to change the color of the batter and give it a slight blue or green tint.
  • Always use a toothpick to check if the muffins are done. The exact cooking time will vary based on the size of the muffins and the actual temperature in the oven.
  • You can store these blueberry muffins for up to 2 days in a pantry, or freeze them for up to 12 months.
