What do I need to make blueberry mini muffins?
To make these blueberry muffins, you’ll need:
- Fresh blueberries
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Baking powder
- Brown sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Unsalted butter
- Whole milk
- Vanilla extract
Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh?
Absolutely! Just be aware that they may turn the entire muffin blue-green—they will still taste the same, though! To reduce the blue stain, you can rinse the frozen blueberries in cold water and dry them with a clean towel before adding them to the batter.
How do you make mini blueberry muffins?
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and either grease a mini muffin tin or line one with paper liners.
- Mix up the batter: whisk the flour with the baking soda, baking powder, and salt in one bowl. In another bowl, stir the sugars with the butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Pour the muffin batter into the prepared mini muffin pan, filling each cup about 3/4 full.
- Bake at 350°F for 12-13 minutes.
Can I make these muffins vegan?
We have a vegan blueberry muffin recipe that is just as delicious as this one!
How do I avoid dry muffins?
Make sure you aren’t mixing the batter too much! Muffins turn tough and dry when the batter is overworked, so you want to stir the dry ingredients into the wet until they are just combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps still in the batter!
Do mini muffins freeze well?
Yes! Arrange the muffins in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Transfer frozen muffins to a freezer-safe bag or container, and freeze for up to three months.
To store your muffins at room temperature instead, place them in an airtight container topped with a paper towel or clean tea towel. Eat within three days.
