Wake up your week with a batch of these Easy Blueberry Muffins. Bursting with juicy berries, this recipe works well with either fresh or frozen blueberries.
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—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. Just remember that if you are using frozen blueberries, don’t let them thaw before adding to the batter.
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.

- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for muffin tops
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place 8 paper liners into a standard-size muffin pan. (Tip: Adding a tablespoon of water to the 4 empty muffin cups will help the muffins bake evenly.)
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, baking powder, and the salt.
- Break an egg into a 2-cup measuring cup, then pour in enough milk (1/3 cup or more) to fill to the 1-cup line. Add the oil and vanilla and stir until all combined.
- Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and stir with a fork just until combined—do not over mix or the muffins will be tough. Gently fold in blueberries.
- Divide batter between the paper-lined muffin cups and fill to the top. Sprinkle each muffin with the extra sugar.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with crumbs, not wet batter. Cool muffins completely on a wire rack.
