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 greek yogurt.

The only important thing to remember is to buy the unsweetened variety of yogurt, not the flavored kind.

How to make greek yogurt blueberry muffins

Step 1: in a bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients – flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

You can use either all purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour for this recipe.

Step 2: whisk together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: 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). Then gently fold in the blueberries.

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 muffins not stick.

Distribute the muffin batter evenly into the 12 muffin tins.

Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

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!
