Hearty Blueberry Muffins


The slightly nutty flavor of these whole-wheat blueberry muffins comes from coconut oil.

  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted, or safflower oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 ounces fresh blueberries (about 1 1/2 cups)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Whisk together flours, wheat germ, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together brown sugar, yogurt, oil, and eggs in another large bowl. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture and gently mix until just combined. Fold in blueberries with a rubber spatula.

  2. Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Transfer muffins to a wire rack and let cool completely.

    I love this recipe as written, but have made a few tweaks to lower the carbs and add more flavor. I use 1 1/4 c of whole wheat flour and 1/2 c almond flour instead of the white flour. I also use splenda with a little molasses in place of the sugar, and add some vanilla and lemon zest for more flavor. I love the coconut oil in this recipe - I'd never used it in baking before. Also, I would recommend storing these in the fridge if they last more than a day or so, because I've had them go rancid.

    These were good but mine seemed a little dense and overbaked after 20 minutes. I won't bake them as long next time. They weren't as sweet as I thought they would be but would be great with a little butter and honey!
