Using greek yogurt in muffins is the best secret for perfectly soft and fluffy, protein packed muffins that taste incredible!

Just take for example these Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins (my kids’ fave), and the best Healthy Chocolate Muffins and Blueberry Mini Muffins, all made with greek yogurt.

For this recipe, we are using whole milk greek yogurt.

Fresh lemon zest is a must in blueberry muffins and this recipe tastes so yummy, like a fresh baked muffin straight from the bakery.

These are sure to become one of your favorite weekend treats to bake!

How to make greek yogurt blueberry muffins

Step 1: In a bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: all purpose flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Step 2: Whisk together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: plain greek yogurt, lemon zest, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and olive oil.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix until just combined (do not over mix).

Gently fold in the blueberries with a rubber spatula.

Step 4: Line a muffin tin with muffin liners. I prefer to use parchment paper liners, as they never stick.

If you use regular muffin liners, spray them with cooking spray to help the blueberry muffins not stick.

Distribute the muffin batter evenly into the 12 muffin tins.

Step 5: Bake the yogurt blueberry muffins at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove the muffins onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Do blueberry muffins need to be refrigerated?

I prefer to refrigerate my muffins for keeping the quality the best.

Once totally cooled, transfer your muffins to an airtight bag or container, and store in the fridge for 1-3 days.

When you are ready to eat one, pop it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to warm it up!

Greek yogurt makes these muffins so light and airy and the perfect texture.

I love using yogurt in muffins for this reason and these are the best blueberry muffins!
