    These are magical muffins! Made my first batch yesterday and loved them so much that I had to make them again this morning.

    I made them as mini muffins and used whole wheat flour and they turned out great!

    Perfect recipe! I have made these a dozen times and they are delicious. I use sparkling sugar sprinkles by Wilton and it makes a beautiful crunchy top!

    My blueberry muffins turned out amazing. They are so moist and with the added sugar on top it is so delicious!

    Easy and very delicious. Moist in the middle and crispy on the outside. Don't need the sugar on top if you don't have it.

    Easy to make, not too sweet, and delicious with a cup of fresh coffee. The lemon zest adds a nice brightness and the sour cream makes a tender muffin. Love these!

    Very good. Used 1/3C sugar, but could use 1/4 C instead. Added lots of blueberries and ended up baking in a loaf pan...very yummy.

    Tasty but did not turn into muffin shape. Dough was much too thick/dense. Couldn’t get the blueberries to mix in properly. Flavour was great though.

    I used a scale to measure ingredients and recommend less blueberries (200 gms). I used Greek yogurt, 5.3oz container. I do not recommend the turbinado sugar (too sweet and messy). I made 24 mini muffins and baked for 17 minutes.

    Recipe is good and muffins came nice and tender however needs a bit more sugar. Going to make again and increase sugar slightly.

    Delicious. Followed the recipe exactly. I did not have raw sugar, so I just sprinkled extra regular sugar on top. It still tasted great. Will use the raw sugar next time. These are not too sweet and the fresh blueberries really came through. I used sour cream.

    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.

    Did not like. Zero taste.

    Made these today and wow! Fantastic, light, fluffy, comfort goodness! The sour cream made them very moist! Yum!
