Healthy Blueberry Muffins
Fact: I’ve always been a sucker for soft, buttery, SUPER fluffy blueberry muffins! Emphasis on the buttery part, for sure. A muffin without butter just seems wrong. And boring. And doomed.
And yet… here I am, shouting from the rooftops that I’ve got a new favorite muffin in town, and the batter is made without a drop of butter. That’s right: none. Nadda. Not even an ounce! Whoa. Talk about a game changer! The best part? They’re just as flavorful, soft, and glorious to bite into as their buttery counterparts… minus the guilt! I’ll be saving my butter for brownies from now on, thank you very much!
Another unique thing about this recipe: there’s a whole 1/4 cup of honey in the mix! We love honey over here, and I LOVE that you can actually taste the sweet golden honey flavor in every bite of these blueberry muffins. These will definitely be a hit with any honey lovers in your life!
Now, since there’s nothing worse than a dry muffin, I added a whole cup of rich, creamy, protein packed Greek yogurt to the batter. This adds intense moisture, and ensures you’ll be left with soft, fluffy muffins. There’s also a splash of milk in the recipe, and you may choose to use anything from whole to skim, depending on your dietary/taste preferences.
Earlier I mentioned there is NO butter in this recipe. Let’s talk more about that! Since I cut the butter out, I needed to replace it with another ingredient that would add both moisture and flavor. I also wanted to keep these muffins on the healthier side. I tested the recipe with olive oil, coconut oil, and a combination of both, and am happy to say all three variations are winners! If you choose to use olive oil, I do recommend using a brand that isn’t intensely flavored. A milder olive oil will work best. Also, the taste of oil in the finished product isn’t strong, so don’t worry about your muffins being overly flavored by either one.
These muffins come together super quick, and only take 18 minutes in the oven! They also freeze quite well, so you can also pop half the batch in the freezer if you want to save some for another day. I always find muffins taste best on day one – especially fresh out of the oven – but these will stay fresh for up to 3 days if you store them in an airtight container.
