Blueberry muffins

July 2, 2019

I wanted a nice fluffy, not too sweet blueberry muffin and these sure did hit the spot! I also get asked a lot for banana free baked recipes, I know I use banana a lot in my muffin and loaf recipes as it works so well to replace other ingredients with much higher point values, but I do try to create new ones often that are banana free ๐Ÿ™‚ These blueberry muffins are simple to make and definitely cured that “I just want a damn muffin” attitude haha, at 3 smart points each they are a nice guilt-free treat and freeze well too.

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
 
3 freestyle, 4SP/3PP per muffin
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¼ cup blueberries, I found frozen worked best as fresh blueberries can be too large and make a mess of the muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12 hole regular size muffin tin with some non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the egg and sugar, stir in milk, applesauce, yogurt and vanilla.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder, then slowly fold in the blueberries.
  4. Divide the batter over the 12 muffin cups and bake for approximately 22 minutes or until baked through.
  5. Let cool.. makes 12 muffins, best store in a sealed container and/or in the fridge

    Do you think it would taste much different if I replaced 1/4 c sugar with 1/4 c Equate No Calorie Sweetener with Sucralose? I made this today and the taste is good to me. It reduces it to 2 SP.

    Love your website & recipes, BTW. I just started WW 10 days ago and am looking for some inspiration for cooking with CANADIAN products. I dearly wish I could get some of those low point products that are available in the US ๐Ÿ˜‰.

    Thanks, Debra T.

      Hi Debra, glad you are enjoying the recipes.. I don’t bake with sweeteners as they typically upset my stomach but if you enjoy them then I’d say go for it, I imagine they will work just fine .. I don’t use too many products from the U.S and most I buy here ๐Ÿ™‚

        These were good, but not quite what I was expecting. It was dense and chewy almost like mochi. Maybe it was just too much liquid. Still very tasty. I’ll have to make these again.

    HI there , what other flour do you recommend for blueberry muffins instead of white flour? I really want to avoid white one .
    Also , can Almond Milk be used instead of 1% milk ? Or using honey instead of sugar in the recipes ?

      Hi Mae, yes you can substitute those and whole wheat flour should work just as well

        These are not glutin free. White flour is gluten. Why would you call these gluten free?

          You must have read guilt free & thought gluten free :). Guilt Gluten? I guess it’s in the eyes or the body of the beholder!

    Hi. Love your recipes. Would these muffins work with almond or coconut flours? Thanks much!

    Hey! Is it all purpose flour or self rising flour?

    Thanks!

    I followed the recipe and found these pretty dense and tasteless but my 1 and 3 year old loved them so Iโ€™ll keep making them.

      Well I am glad to hear your littles enjoyed them ๐Ÿ™‚ my muffins are usually denser in texture due to ingredients used

    Made these, but I consider my muffin tin “regular” and even 9verfilling them I still made 20. I was writing to say say did you use mini muffin pans but the recipe states regular. So f it made 20 insytead of 12, whayt would be the points? I am assuming those 8 extra muffins should have been in the 12.

      Hi, wow that’s crazy you had so much batter, yeah I made 12 regular size muffins, I don’t know the exact points on 20, my guess would be 1 less each, but you coud build the recipe in the WW app and put 20 as servings to get accurate point count

    Hi! I made these and they were way too wet. I used almond milk instead of cows milk. Could this be why? I ended up baking them for twice the time you suggest but they ended up being wet and dense.

      Hi, no the milk should not cause this, I’m not too sure, it is hard to say without being there, maybe the oven temp was off? They were definitely bake when I made them
