Ingredients

  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour (or just plain white)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 large egg*
  • 1/2 cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray and lightly flour (do not use muffin liners as these stick) 7-9 of the muffin cavities and set aside. (Tip: when you measure the flour spoon and level the measurement so you don't pack in too much flour into the measuring cup)

  2. Remove 1 tablespoon from the flour and return it to the flour bag. In a bowl, toss together the remaining flour with the cornstarch baking powder and salt until well mixed. 

  3. Stir in the blueberries until well coated in the flour mixture and set aside.
  4. In another bowl (important to use 2 bowls so the ingredients don't get over-mixed resulting in dense muffins), lightly beat the egg with a fork for 20 seconds. Stir in the Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil until well combined.
  5. Stir in the sugar and mix until smooth.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until JUST combined. Over-mixing will yield less optimal results.
  7. Fill up the prepared muffin tin a little over 3/4ths the way full.
  8. If desired, sprinkle a little bit of extra sugar (1/4 teaspoon) on the tops.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a fork when inserted in the center comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

I would recommend reading the notes on the ingredients in the last paragraph of the post to achieve the optimal results of these muffins. *Note that cold eggs or yogurt will cause your melted coconut oil to harden -- make sure the eggs and yogurt are at room temperature!
