There is no way to describe these blueberry muffins without using the word fluffy. Fluffy: being light and soft and airy; puffed up. Resembling air in lightness as in "the big fluffy clouds" or "the soft, fluffy pillow."
Have you ever felt the fluffy fur of a new kitten? We just welcomed Smokey the cat into our family and he is the epitome of fluffy. You just can't stop petting him because he is so soft!
That's how these blueberry muffins are...but in an edible version of course. They are irresistible and leave you wanting more.
The Dry Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon each of baking powder, baking soda, and salt
8-10 oz blueberries (about 1.5 cups) fresh or frozen. If you are using frozen, do not thaw them.
First, combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. If you have one, use a sifter to sift the flour mixture. This process allows more air into the mixture and makes the blueberry muffins extra fluffy. Once that is mixed, gently pour in the blueberries and coat them with flour.
The Wet Ingredients
2 eggs beaten
8oz Greek yogurt (1 cup)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk the eggs lightly on their own and then mix in the other wet ingredients. These blueberry muffins turn out best if you can use real vanilla extract rather than imitation.
I like Simply Organic's pure vanilla. But did you know that you can make your own vanilla extract?
Natasha at Natasha's Kitchen gives the world's easiest homemade vanilla extract recipe. She also includes free printable labels to put on the jars if you want to give them as a gift.
I foresee making some homemade Christmas presents in my future!
Now gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until it is combined and you can't see any more flour. Don't over mix!
Scoop the batter into a greased muffin tin. Go ahead and fill them all the way up. This recipe is for 12 fluffy and big blueberry muffins!
Bake the blueberry muffins for 20-22 minutes at 400 degrees or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Side Note: Bake these when the house is empty or they'll be gone before they cool down!
Once removed from the oven, let the muffins cool in the tin before removing them to a wire rack.
It's all I can do to keep my kids away from them! But can you blame them? With this warm, extra fluffy blueberry muffin goodness, it's hard to resist. And one of these on the porch with a cup of coffee in the morning? Yep...to die for!

Followed the blueberry muffin recipe exactly but they came out dry and lumpy.
These are delicious! used half the amount of sugar, 10oz of frozen blueberries and regular yogurt. I want more tang, so would try sourcream or adding lemon to the yogurt next time. 20 minutes at 400 closer to the top of the oven did the trick! Don’t over bake. Also, mix dry into wet if you can. Its easier to mix without over mixing that way. And, use the paper muffin cups if you want to be able to overfill the tins and have big muffin tops!
Used 10 dishes in total, including spoons, forks etc. How few can you use?? 🙂
I just made these and they are great! I don’t usually like most muffins because they’re heavy and dry. My favorite muffins are Dunkin Donuts blueberry muffins. But I don’t like the turbinado sugar on top. This recipe rivals Dunkin! I used plain yogurt instead of Greek. And I added 1/2 cup of thawed, smashed blueberries because I like the color through the muffin. The color most people think doesn’t look good. 🙂 They’re perfect.
Such a quick and yummy recipe!!! Thank you so much!!! 💜💜💜
So yummy! These turned out great! These are my go too blueberry muffins 💕!
I wanted to find a light and fluffy blueberry muffin recipe and tried this one after reading all the reviews. I’m glad I did as the muffins came out delicious and pretty fluffy. I used half the sugar and as I don’t like it too sweet and only 6 ozs of yogurt cause that’s all I had… Maybe it would be fluffier if I had used the full amount of yogurt. I can see how this recipe could be a great base for variations so looking forward to making this again with a bit of lemon zest!
These muffins were delicious with great texture and consistency. I wouldn’t call them extra fluffy, but they were less dense than other recipes I’ve tried. It was a challenge to incorporate all the dry ingredients when I added the wet, though it may have worked better with a wider, more shallow bowl. I will definitely make them again. We used fresh blueberries just picked. Delicious.
Oh my goodness Heidi! Thank you for this amazing recipe! I just made these muffins and they are the best I’ve ever made, as light and fluffy as you promised. I topped them with some sparkling sugar and they are as beautiful as they are delicious!
I made these muffins, as per the recipe instructions/method, yesterday. I added the zest of a lemon to the dry ingredients before tossing the berries in the mixture and used half monkfruit sweetener and half white sugar to total 3/4 cup of ‘sugar’ – just a bit less than the recipe called for. I used an organic greek yogurt and 2 large eggs. I found the batter to be very thick and it was difficult to incorporate the flour but I gently persisted. The yield was 12 very large muffins. They required 30 mins baking time in my gas oven with temp verified at 400F. I actually turned the heat down to 350F in the final 10 minutes as the tops were browning nicely and I didn’t want them to burn. Verdict: delicious, fluffy crumb with berries well disbursed throughout. The flavour is perfect! I’ve made soooo many muffins over the years …. these are now among my favourites for a very satisfying blueberry muffin!!
perfect every time – today was cranberry orange, just add a tbs of orange rind and a 1/4 cup orange juice then of course sub cran for the blue! Yummy!
Just what I was looking for, a light not dense blueberry muffin. This will now be my standby for years to come. Yummy, next time I’ll add either some lemon or almond flavoring or a bit of cinnamon. 4 more batches coming up – the neighbours are going to love me as living alone I share with them. Delicious!
How much almond extract and cinnamon would you add to this recipe. Want to make adding these two ingredients.
Great recipe, thanks! I made these for my family and they loved it! I’m not a cook or baker so these easy to follow instructions were awesome. I used half the sugar and two cups of blueberries instead. For the vegetable oil I used avocado oil.
I was looking for a new blueberry muffin recipe, one that didn’t come out so dense and biscuit-like. These are it. I used frozen berries and used 1/2 cup Truvia cane sugar blend in place of sugar. These are delicious!! This will be my go-to recipe from now on!! I can’t wait to try other variations as other reviewers have posted. Thank you!
I love hearing that the Truvia worked. What a great substitution!
You got the stars back!! I give this one a ten. If you are browsing the web for a muffin recipe and like your light and fluffy, STOP LOOKING! I’m here downloading the recipe again. I’ve made these so many times I’ve lost count. Tonight is cranberry orange for my church group tomorrow. I usually make 1.5 times the recipe and get a full 24 mini muffins and enough left for at least 6 or more regular size muffins, those stay home with me! I’ve done blueberry lemon, I’ve left out the berries and done a struesel topping and called them coffee cake muffins. The options are endless! Thanks for the perfect muffin recipe! Joy!
I know, this recipe is the best! I also love your idea of the streusel topping!
This is the best blueberry muffins, my whole family love it. Don’t search any other recipe. This is the best one
My boyfriend and flatmates were raving about these muffins when I made them so I did immediately a second batch! I added also some chocolate chips and they came out heavenly! I’m going to make some for Christmas day 🙂 thank you lots for this recipe!!!
I love the chocolate chip idea! Thanks for trying out the recipe.
I wanted to make blueberry muffins today… this is the first recipe I looked at and will be the one I will use. I read all the comments, hands down this recipe has excellent ratings. I am not the best baker so wish me luck. I only have fat free greek yogurt so I am going to add some English double cream to see if that make a small bit of difference. I will let you know. Thanks so much!!!!!
Let me know how that double cream works out!
I love these muffins! I substituted bananas for the yogurt just because I needed to use them and they are amazing!! They are light, moist and looked beautiful. I did not put a topping on them and followed the rest of the recipe as instructed. Thank you and thanks for the tips.
What a fun addition! Thanks for trying them Marilyn!
I have a medical issue and don’t want to use that much oil. Anything else that I can substitute for all or part of the oil? Thank you.
You could use applesauce if you like.
When I saw these only had three votes of 5 stars I had to rate it. I bake a ton and this is my go to recipe. I can’t count how many times I’ve made it. But, can’t find the star rating thingy! I give it a huge 10! Blueberry, lemon blueberry, raspberry, with crumb, with streusel, orange cranberry, chocolate chip….all with this one, oh so easy recipe. Oh, and cakes! Just dump it all in a baking pan and you’ve got coffee cake. If you are searching for a fluffy muffin recipe…STOP LOOKING.
You are so sweet to say all those things! And you are right…it is such a versatile recipe. I think thrive themes did away with the star rating. If not, I will have to look into adding it again. But thank you for your comment nonetheless!
I just printed the recipe tonight! The addiction is real! I am baking a couple of times a week for the ICU nurses at a local hospital. They call me the Muffin Lady! Request for tomorrow is Apple with Struesel topping. Dice up the apples, throw ’em in the flour, mix it up and you got Apple Muffins!
That is a fun addition! You should try my apple cinnamon muffins/bread. I think you would really enjoy it.
This is the most KISS and lovely recipe I have ever tried. I made the blueberry muffins yesterday and they just came out absolutely perfect. I used sour cream instead of greek yogurt and coconut oil for veg oil. This has perfect sweetness, fluff and flavor. Simply Loved IT!! Thanks Heidi! 1 Q – do you have alternate recipe for this with whole wheat flour or anyone else has tried this with whole wheat?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a recipe using whole wheat flour. You could always sub it in for the all purpose, but I do believe it would change the fluffiness and texture.
I found White Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (Bobs) and used 1/2 and 1/2 AP flour. They were delicious. A teensy bit more dense but not noticable to the normal human. I’m big on fluffy!
This is great to know!
Delicious!! I’ve made muffins so many times and been disappointed that they weren’t nice and puffed but these are perfect and the sweetness is just right. I wouldn’t change a thing, new favorite in my recipe box!
I’m so glad! Thanks for sharing your positive feedback.
We LOVED these muffins! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. We used strawberry greek yogurt, which added a nice hint of strawberry to each bite, especially the bites without blueberries. We can’t wait to make these again.
What a fun variation! Thanks for sharing!
I had a hard time mixing the batter…it was so thick! Anyone else have this problem?
They were also kind of mushy 😕
I had the same problem – and measured everything exactly as per the recipe. Not sure about the texture as they are still in the oven… requiring more than 22 mins to bake as well.
Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! I have been using it for months now and it is my family’s favorite dessert! It’s definitely a keeper. I even made my husband’s birthday cake using this recipe 🙂
I got blueberries from Kroger last week and they were so good I ate them all up, this week I grabbed some at Walmart and they left much to be desired so I thought of your muffins and made these day, so delicious! I don’t have a sifter but still turned out wonderful! I love how easy and quick it is to whip these up!
Way to repurpose the berries!
This recipe is SO good I just made a second batch.. the last one only lasted 24 hours between my husband and I. Added 2 cups of frozen mixed berries this time about to devour them… I mean 1 haha
Yummy! I like your mixed berries idea!
Is it possible to substitute the sugar with maple syrup or honey?
I have not tried either one of those in this recipe.
I just finished making these delicious blueberry muffins. They are the best ones, by far, that I have ever made! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
Woohoo! I am so glad; thank you for trying them.
I was wondering if you could use cranyberries instead of the blueberries
Most definitely! I would use them while they are frozen. In fact, you may also like to try my cranberry orange muffins: https://heidishomecooking.com/cranberry-orange-bread/
These muffins are ABSOLUTELY the best I have ever had. Thanks for the recipe!!
You’re welcome, so glad you enjoyed them.
Hi Heidi, Pretty interesting recipe. I followed your ingredients to the letter. Muffins came out pretty good, and look great. Up till now I’ve pretty much only made Banana based muffins. So I base my comments on this comparison. I think they could be a bit sweeter. Next time I will increase the sugar. Also I used Chobani zero fat yogurt. Might have made a difference.
Hey John! It sounds like you are expanding your horizons…thanks for trying my recipe! Chobani is not a bad choice, but yes, I think the full-fat Greek yogurt is good for this recipe. I have used Chobani blueberry Greek yogurt and I felt like it was slightly saltier. If you want to add more sweetness, try sprinkling on some turbinado sugar on the muffins before you pop them in the oven. They add just a hint more sweetness and a bit of crunch. 🙂
I can’t even describe these.
I bake. A lot! Blueberry muffins are typically very heavy and dry. These. Omg. I just ate 3 and burnt my mouth, but I couldn’t stop. These are by far the best muffin I have ever tasted! Even better than my local coffee shop muffins!!
Wow! What a compliment! Thank you for your kind words. And thank you for not letting me feel alone in the stuffing of my face with these muffins. I can’t tell you how many times I have made these for the kids and half are gone by the time they get home from school…
I did an extensive recipe comparison across many food blogs and decided that your recipe was not only easy to commit to memory but uses the traditional muffin method of combining (ie wet in one bowl and dry in the other) as opposed to the creaming method like that of the Jordan Marsh recipe. The only thing I added was half a cup of buttermilk and the result was excellent. Texture and sweetness is perfect.
Thank you so much for your kind feedback, Farah! I do strive to make my recipes easy and delicious. I love your idea of buttermilk!
Made these tonight. I have never been able to make good blueberry muffins but these came out great! They really are wonderful and easy. I also live in the Knoxville area and want to visit your cake shop. Yummy!
Hi Neighbor! Thanks so much for the feedback! And, of course, I would love to meet you or even make a cake for you!
Cannot share these on facebook, have tried repeatedly.
Hi Cheryl! I checked everything on my end on several different recipes including this blueberry muffin recipe, and everything seems to be working ok on my end. My tech guy said there may be a miscommunication between your computer and your share settings on facebook. You can always go up to the url and copy and paste the actual link to your fb page too. That should work.
My batter turned all blue and it looked really horrible. Any tips?
Did you use blueberries that had previously been frozen and then thawed? That will do it. Make sure your berries are either fresh from the store or completely frozen. And make sure not to skip the step where you coat them in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom.
These a yummy!! I made mini muffins, decreased oven to 350 and baked 12 minutes. Came out perfectly.
That is great to know! Thanks Megan!
I made these yesterday evening. We warmed them up for breakfast and they were absolutely delicious. So fluffy and light. I had no yogurt so mixed milk and lemon juice instead so just to say this is a workable alterative!
Thank you for letting me know how you adjusted the recipe and that it worked! I am always interested in alternatives to recipes.
Cakes came out amazing! Super fluffy and cooked the perfect amount. Thank you!
So glad you liked them Ellie!
This blueberry muffin recipe was a big hit in our home. My kids ate them up! The fluffiness of the muffin and the consistency of the blueberries mixed in was a delight. We all made these delicious muffins as a family and what a sweet experience it was. We paired our muffins with a rich glass of chocolate milk.
Delicious blueberry muffins and happy kids…. a great way to start the day.
Nothing better than a fluffy blueberry muffin and a happy kid! Thanks Kelsey!
This recipe worked so well. the muffins are perfectly light and delicious. Thanks!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Hi Heidi, this recipe is great! I didn’t have plain Greek yogurt and replaced it with normal bio plain yogurt. But the yogurt I have is less than 1 cup…only 180g and so I added a little milk (12% fat type :), what we call coffee creamer here in Switzerland) and the muffins turned out great. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful superb recipe.
Thank you so much for trying the recipe and letting me know of the substitutions you made! I know other readers appreciate your feedback.
I am definitely not a baker, but these muffins are the only thing I can bake and they are delicious every tome. Amazing recipe! Thank you so much!
Don’t you just love a recipe that you can’t mess up?! I’m so glad you found one you like!
Hi and could you please send me this recipe in grams?
Thank you and best wishes
Hi Stella! Great question. You’ll need the following:
256 grams flour
201 grams sugar
7 grams each of baking soda, powder, and salt
255 grams blueberries
224 grams vegetable oil
250 grams Greek yogurt
4.2 grams vanilla extract
I hope this helps! Let me know if there is anything else you need.
1/2 cup oil is 112 grams
224 grams is 1 cup
please make correction-its double the amount
Thanks G…sorry for the typo
These muffins were great!! My kids gave them 2 thumbs up! I have always had problems with my blueberries sinking to the bottom and this did not happen with this recipe. I even substituted light sour cream since I didn’t have greek yogurt and it turned out great. Thank you for sharing!
Woohoo! I love when we find a keeper recipe! Thanks for trying it Trish!
These were the best blueberry muffins ever .
I used a mini muffin pan to make them I call them lil bite muffins I got about 30 lil bites and my family and friends loved them .
That is such a great idea! More to go around! I’m so glad you liked them.
Made these today–delicious!
Aren’t they the BEST?! Glad you enjoyed them!
