    The batter was sooo thick I was skeptical of how they’d turn out but they look and taste lovely!
    Made these again and they were great. The turbinado sugar on top is wonderful. I used a mixture of gluten free and paleo flours instead of regular flour and they turned out fantastic.

    Delicious! Made with yoghurt. Don’t skip the sugar topping it definitely adds a yummy crunch. This is now my go to blueberry muffins recipe.

    Absolutely scrumptious! Perfect ratio of yogurt to blueberries, it truly was perfect. I brought them to a kids' party, and they were gone within minutes! Thank you so much x

    1st time, no sugar cuz I had none; this time, gorgeous glaze atop each scrumptious muffin. Family says I’m da bomb for getting up extra early and making these for breakfast.

    Tastes great! I followed it to a tee; used sour cream and frozen blueberries. Thank you!😋

    I thought this recipe was pretty good. I used sour cream because that’s what I had in the fridge. My husband and daughter loved them. The texture was very nice, but I think maybe I just prefer a more dense muffin personally.

    Easy! I used coconut oil instead of butter and added way more zest to make it extra lemony. Also I added only around 1/2 cup sugar to the batter and was plenty sweat for me☺️

    Was awesome, used 1/4 scoop of vanilla yogurt and the rest sour cream. Also zested about 3/4 of a lemon. Made 9 muffins overall, they are so good.

    These are fantastic the lemon zest makes these muffins amazing! I’m not a huge fan of lemon baked goods but this recipe is the exception! I used 1/3 c sugar (by accident, it was early), and 1/4 or less sugar on top I got 12 normal-sized muffins from the recipe.

    I made these and it turned out so great! It made 10 muffins for me! I used plain Greek yogurt. I also used lemon zest from a whole small lemon, which I think made it taste better with that lemony flavor. Super easy recipe to follow and you don’t need a mixer. Just a whisk to combine and spatula to fold the flour and blueberries. The batter had a thick consistency, which I believe kept the blueberries from sinking. It tasted amazing; might have to double the recipe next time...

    Probably the best muffins that I have ever made. Adding the brown sugar on top really made a difference. This recipe makes 12 normal sized muffins. Will definitely be making these again!

    Very yummy! But stuck to muffin cups. They could not have tasted better. Delicate, but what I wanted. I might try spraying the muffin cups next time.they were not quite pretty.
