Ingredients to make banana blueberry muffin with yogurt
- Dry ingredients: The dry ingredients for this recipe are pretty basic; all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt are all you need!
- Bananas: The more yellow/brown spotty the banana, the sweeter it is. I like to use bananas that have a few brown specks on the outside. They can get too sweet/ripe so try not to let them brown too much. Stay away from green bananas for this recipe.
- Blueberries: I like to use fresh for this recipe, but you can use frozen as well. If using frozen, do thaw the berries before adding them to the batter. Adding the berries frozen can cause issues with even cooking.
- Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt takes the place of oil or butter in this recipe. It also adds protein and makes these muffins extra moist!
- Eggs: Eggs help bind the ingredients together and add structure to baked goods.
- Light brown sugar: Light brown sugar is my sweetener of choice for this recipe. I enjoy the hint of molasses. You could also use honey, pure maple syrup, or white sugar.
- Vanilla Extract: This is a baking staple and adds flavor to the muffins.
How to make banana blueberry muffin
Making your banana blueberry muffins is pretty straightforward. The hardest part is smelling them while their baking!
Mix Banana Blueberry Batter
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until blended.
- Whisk in the banana, yogurt, brown sugar, and vanilla until combined.
- Fold in the dry ingredients until no flour pockets remain.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Divide the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the muffins are golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Tips for making banana blueberry muffin
- Measure your flour correctly. The best way to measure flour is to fluff it up in the bag with a spoon, and then spoon the fluffed flour into the measuring cup. Avoid tamping down or packing the flour into the cup—that will result in too much flour being added to the recipe, and you’ll end up with dense, dry muffins!
- Keep your blueberries from sinking. The best way to prevent all the blueberries from going straight to the bottom is to spoon about a tablespoon of plain batter into each muffin well before folding the blueberries into the remaining batter. It’s an extra step, but it’s worth it!
- Use parchment paper muffin liners for easy release and cleanup. I always keep these in stock because they peel much more easily as compared to paper liners, and the batter never sticks to them. That makes the muffin tray pan super easy to clean up!
- Use ripe bananas. Green bananas won’t have enough sugar content and will make your muffins taste bland. You want your bananas to have a few brown spots on the skin for the best flavor.
popular substitutions & additions
- Add a streusel on top for some texture. A mixture of oats, butter, and brown sugar adds a delicious crunch to the top of these muffins.
- Use oil instead of greek yogurt. If you don’t have any Greek yogurt on hand, you can use ¾ cup of oil in place of the Greek yogurt.
- Replace the flour with almond flour. Almond flour does tend to yield denser muffins and doesn’t rise as much as regular flour, but you can switch them out at a 1:1 ratio.
- Omit the blueberries. This recipe makes great banana muffins! If you don’t have any blueberries on hand or prefer not to use them, simply leave them out.
how to store banana blueberry muffins with yogurt
You can store the muffins in an airtight container in the fridge. I like to add a paper towel under the muffins the absorb any extra moisture they might release from the fruit in the muffins.
how long will banana blueberry muffins last in the fridge?
These muffins will last for about 7 days in the fridge.
can i freeze banana blueberry muffins?
Absolutely! You can also freeze the muffins for up to 3 months. Just wrap them individually in so you can enjoy them anytime you want. Microwave a frozen muffin for 30 seconds in the microwave to eat it.
Frequently asked questions
Due to the Greek yogurt in the recipe, I do recommend storing them in the fridge. You could store them at room temperature for a day or two, but they will last longer if stored in the fridge.
I haven’t tried this with any other type of yogurt, so I can’t say for certain, but I think plain Greek yogurt would work the best in this recipe.
Yes! Just reduce the baking time by a few minutes. Keep an eye on them and test with a toothpick to see if they’re done.
