Moist Mini Blueberry Muffins

If you like blueberries...this muffin recipe will be a treat for you. The muffins are very moist. They are not your traditional muffin... a secret ingredient...yogurt. How fun!!

I really like this recipe. It is different. It is easy and quick to whip together.

Moist Mini Blueberry Muffins

Start off by washing your blueberries. Set them aside.

Melt butter in a small dish. Set aside and let cool.

In a medium size bowl. Combine flour, sugar, and baking soda.

**Baking tip** ...it is crucial when baking, to make sure your ingredients are measured accurately. Flour should be leveled off. Any other dry ingredient should be leveled off too.

In a separate bowl, (I used a Pyrex glass measuring cup) add butter, yogurt, egg, and vanilla. Whisk well.

Add yogurt mixture (wet ingredients) to flour mixture and stir just until combined. Just until the dry ingredients are wet.

Gently fold in blueberries.

Grease (I use butter) mini muffin tins. Batter will be thick. Use a spoon to fill muffin tins. It will make 24 mini muffins.

Bake for approximately 11-13 minutes.

Blueberry, blueberry goodness...

Sprinkle the muffins with raw sugar when finished baking. The raw sugar will give it a little crunch and texture. Moist muffin + Raw sugar = palate pleasing combination.

Adapted from Taste of Home

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 small container blueberry yogurt
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces fresh blueberries -washed and drained

In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, yogurt, butter and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Fill mini muffin cups coated with cooking spray. (I use butter) Bake at 375° for 11-13 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

If you want to make regular size muffins, just adjust the baking time.

Berry good dishes.....Kristi
