Make Smart Snacking Choices

Going to the grocery store these days it is hard to find healthy already-made snacks. Most of them are filled with refined sugars and are over-processed to keep them on the shelves longer. By buying wholesome ingredients and cooking at home, you can make healthier choices and still make something absolutely delicious.

These healthy blueberry muffins are made with real maple syrup, whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and luscious blueberries. Blueberries are considered a super fruit — they are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that our bodies crave. Plus they are delicious, so who can resist these amazing little berries? Not me!

Can I Use Frozen Bluberries For This Recipe?

Short answer — yes! I use frozen blueberries in my baking all of the time and I feel personally there is very little of a difference in taste and texture once they are baked up. Plus, if you ever see a bag of frozen blueberries on sale, grab them up! There are so many recipes you can make with frozen blueberries to make even more healthy eating choices. For instance, check out this amazingly delicious and healthy blueberry smoothie recipe here.

The Best Things About Blueberries

According to WebMD blueberries are considered a superfood that can help reduce your risks of heart disease, cancer, and help lower your cholesterol. These berries can also make you generally feel better; when you eat healthier foods you will even enhance your mood because your body is getting the things that it actually needs and craves.

Blueberries are full of antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium and are known to help reduce inflammation. One of the most amazing things about these super berries is that even when frozen they will still keep their amazing vitamins and minerals. Nutritionists will also tell you the darker the fruit is in color, the more antioxidant power the fruits have. As we mentioned before, this means they also have higher anti-inflammatory properties which help fight a multitude of illnesses and diseases.

How To Make Healthy Blueberry Muffins: Step By Step

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Farenheight.

Line a muffin tin with muffin cup liners and set it to the side.

In a large mixing bowl add whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Using a whisk, mix all of these ingredients together, making sure that the flour has no clumps and that the ingredients are fully combined.

Next, add in the dry rolled oats and whisk together again.

Now it is time to add in our wet ingredients. Add to the bowl pure maple syrup, olive oil, non-dairy milk (I am using almond milk but you could use soy, oat, cashew, etc.), vanilla extract, and eggs.

Using a stiff spatula fold together all of your ingredients. Try not to over mix your batter or your muffins will come out too tough and dense.

Next, add in the blueberries — if using fresh blueberries, make sure they are thoroughly washed and dried and add them into the batter. Using the same stiff spatula, fold the blueberries into the batter carefully so as not to break the blueberries open.

Note: If you are using frozen blueberries do not thaw the blueberries or wash them. Just toss the frozen blueberries into the batter and fold them in just as we would do with the fresh blueberries.

Once all of your ingredients are fully combined grab the muffin pan with the liners we had set aside and fill each muffin line halfway to 3 quarters of the way full with the batter.

Bake on the center rack of your oven for 15 to 20 minutes and check with a toothpick at the 15-minute mark to check for doneness. Once done, leave to cool for another 15 to 20 minutes and enjoy!

Can You Bake And Freeze These Muffins?

One thing I love about these healthy blueberry muffins is they are great for meal prep. You can bake a batch of these muffins, let them cool, place them in a freezer-safe ziplock bag or freezer-safe container, and take a few out when you are ready to enjoy! Just let them thaw at room temperature, then enjoy once thawed.
