How to make Healthy Blueberry Muffins:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius. Grease all 12 cups on your muffin pan or tray. Keep aside
  2. Take a big mixing bowl. Add whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk them and keep aside the flour mix
  3. In another bowl, add oil and honey (or maple syrup). Beat them up with a whisk
  4. Add the eggs and beat well
  5. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract, mix well. If you’re using coconut oil and it solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, warm it up for 10-15 secs in the microwave
  6. In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with the remaining 1 teaspoon flour. This helps prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom, keep aside
  7. Now pour the wet ingredients into the flour mix. Stir with a big spoon until all ingredients are combined well
  8. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter, the batter will be thick
  9. Divide and add the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle some raw sugar on the top
  10. Bake the muffins for 15 to 19 mins or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
  11. Let the muffins cool down in the tray for 5-10 mins. You can even loosen up the sides with a butter knife if needed. Then take them out and cool down for another 10-15 mins
  12. Your Healthy Blueberry Muffins are ready. You can refrigerate them for up to 5 days.
