Recipe Tips

  • Make sure you use a flavorless oil such as vegetable oil unless you don’t mind introducing new flavors. For example, coconut oil will add coconut flavors to your muffins.
  • Try hard to not overmix the muffin batter; otherwise, the muffins can become chewy, tough, and not rise as well as they should. I recommend hand mixing rather than using an electric beater.
  • You can use cupcake liners if you want to ensure that the muffins don’t stick to the tray.
  • Frozen or fresh blueberries will work fine in this recipe. Alternatively, you can use dehydrated blueberries.
