Easy Blueberry Muffins
Thanks to my in-laws and their prize blueberry bushes, we almost always have extra blueberries in our freezer. That means you’ll find a variety of blueberry recipes here on Life, Love, and Good Food—yum, yum!
So, if you’re a blueberry fan like me, today you’re in luck! Besides sharing this original recipe for Easy Blueberry Muffins by Inspired Taste—which are delicious, moist, and bursting with blueberries.
Besides this delicious muffin recipe, I’ve collected a list below of my favorite blueberry recipes for your convenience.
First, let me tell you just a little about these muffins. To start, if you’re looking for a way to brighten someone’s day, make a double-batch to share and watch them smile.
These muffins are literally bursting with blueberries, and they don’t all end up in the bottom of the muffin.
How? Well, this batter will be very thick which helps hold the berries in place. Fresh or frozen blueberries may be used in this recipe.
Also, it’s very important to remember that muffins get tough if you over mix the batter. Use your will power and only stir until the dry ingredients are barely incorporated and no more.
PRO TIP: If you use frozen blueberries in this recipe, don’t let them thaw before adding to the batter.

Easy Blueberry Sour Cream Muffins Recipe
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place 12 paper liners into a standard-size muffin pan.

- In a separate medium-size bowl, combine the sour cream, sugar, oil, eggs, milk, and flavorings until smooth.

- Divide batter between the paper-lined muffin cups and fill to the top. Sprinkle each muffin with 1/2 teaspoon of the turbinado sugar.
- Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake for another 12 to 13 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with crumbs, not wet batter.
- Cool muffins in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Finally got a chance to make these…. delicious!! Very easy and my son gave them 2 thumbs up!! And the berries stayed in the muffin instead of falling to the bottom. Will add this recipe to my favorites for sure!
After reading the massive amount of ingredients in store-bought muffins, and I SO happy to have found this recipe!!! It’s so easy and the family loves these. Thanks so much!!
Oh, thank you so much!
Could I also use cranberries for this? Love it as is but if it’d work for other fruit, all the better!
