How to Make Blueberry Muffins

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and give your muffin tin a quick spritz of cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.

Now it’s time to mix up the wet ingredients: melted coconut oil, unsweetened applesauce, eggs, honey, vanilla extract and tangy nonfat Greek yogurt. Blend the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients, then stir in some fresh or frozen blueberries.

Pour your batter into 12 muffin cups, pop them in the oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Once your muffins pass the toothpick test, let them cool for about five minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Patience is a virtue, so wait for them to cool completely before chowing down!

Not a fan of blueberries? Feel free to swap in a different type of berry! Strawberries, blackberries or raspberries would all be delicious options.

You can also swap the vanilla extract with a different type for a totally unique flavored muffin. Use lemon extract for a lemon blueberry muffin that is perfect for spring celebrations. Coconut extract provides a tropical taste, while orange extract is bright and citrusy – both taste like a sweet, summer morning!
