I had to make it as salt free as possible so it was a little lacking in flavor but still good I think I’ll add some cinnamon to the batter next time to spice it up a bit I used sour cream and was really impressed I wouldn’t add quite so many blue berries next time

Great! But I doubled it and used 3 cups blueberries, 1/2 cup sunflower oil, half wheat and half white flour, half Greek plain yogurt and half rice milk and only 3/4 cup sugar I wouldn’t change a thing. Hubby said they were perfect!

Ok, but the texture is not as thick as I‘d hoped (seeing the pictures of the recipe‘s final product). You might have to add some flour and, as I was using yoghurt, try to do them with sour cream.

Delicious, moist, and very easy to make. I ised frozen blueberries and made the mistake of mixing them too hard, so a few broke in the batter, making it a little blue. It still tasted great. I am not a baker and I thought they still turned out great.

Best homemade muffins I have made/had. Doesn’t have that overly sickly sweet taste but I also used sour cream so that may have made the difference.

Very delicious! The lemon zest and sour cream make for a moist and flavorful muffin. The thick batter bakes into a tender texture, so don’t let the thickness fool you! Be careful not to over mix or over bake. I used the full 1.5 cups of blueberries which was just right. Wonderful recipe..

Yummy and moist, not too sweet. Added some cinnamon to the sugar for sprinkling on top which added some flavour. Recipe yielded 10 muffins for me. Would add a little less blueberries, but personal preference as the recipe mentioned.

These were by far the best blueberry muffins I’ve ever made/had and I’ve tried a bunch!! Used sour cream and Greek vanilla yogurt. Also used King Arthur flour which is the best in my opinion.
