Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Blueberry Muffins pictures (4 of 7)

On my recent flight back from Asia, I read a very interesting article about 10 superfoods that one should integrate into the daily diet: garlic, tofu, mushrooms, blueberries, kale, flaxseed, beans, carrots, tomatoes, and strawberries. These foods are referred to as “immune boosters” by the author, a MD and medical director of a cancer treatment center.

Earlier this year, I had a major health scare–one that was fortunately harmless–that leads me to be more conscious about the foods I consume on a daily basis. When I read through the list, I felt rather happy and relieved because I am already a big fan of many of them; for example: garlic, tofu, mushrooms, carrots, and beans. However, I don’t eat enough blueberries and strawberries, even though they are so adorable, absolutely edible, and readily available in the US. I resolve to eat them more.

Blueberry Muffins

And hence, blueberry has become my new favorite. I eat them raw, or I top my matcha (green tea) ice cream with blueberries (green tea is also another healthy food). I also bake blueberry muffins on the weekend, and save the muffins as breakfast for my busy work week. Packed full of juicy blueberries, these sweet and light muffins are perfect choice for breakfast.

I have a great blueberry muffins recipe that I received in my mail, you know, the cookbook club mailer that also includes a few recipe leaflets. The blueberry muffins recipe calls for very basic ingredients–ones that I always have in my fridge and pantry. The recipe also creates a fluffier muffins instead of the “dense” ones sold at stores. Personally, I love my blueberry muffins “lighter” as I can have a couple of them without feeling completely stuffed in the morning. The blueberry muffins recipe is also very easy to follow, plus the notion that I am eating healthy superfood makes the muffins taste even better! :)

  2. Manggy says:

    If I did live in the states I’d be eating berries all the time! I’m so deprived, haha :) I’m glad the health scare turned out to be a small thing. :)

  3. backstreetgluttons says:

    we eat at least 5 of such boosters on a regular basis , so shud be safe enough…or are we ?

  4. Christy says:

  5. friedwontons4u says:

    Blueberries are the best! Love them in yogurt and especially in muffins.

  6. "Joe" who is constantly craving says:

    wat a good way to enjoy an “immune booster” eh?..

  7. worldwindows says:

    Asians are conscious of eating their vege and fruits. No struggle. I personally feel that the author missed out 1 or 2 more legumes. Like your muffins very much. When I am in a cafe I gravitate to it esp. the blueberry. It’s the best.

  8. Food For Tots says:

    Your muffins are so lovely and yummy! All of your photos and recipes are so great! ;-)

  9. Amelia says:

    Hi, i don’t get the part where you say, fill empty cups halfway with water. What does that mean? Do you mean, the empty muffin/paper cups? How is that possible?

    Thank you in advance for clarifying (:

  10. Dora says:

    May I ask, what is the purpose of filling up the empty cups with water?

  11. daphne says:

    Yummy! Certainly a blueberry muffin is a great way to boost up our antioxidants. More excuses to have more..

  12. Jane says:

    Your blueberry muffins look so cute. I also love blueberry muffins in the morning for breakfast and yes, the ones at the store are always dry and very dense, so I can only eat one blueberry muffin the most. I am going to try your lighter blueberry muffins recipe.

  13. Barbara says:

    I love blueberry muffins also. My recipe is similar to yours with yogurt in place of milk.

  14. Anonymous says:

    I tried your blueberry muffins last night and oh my god, they were so good and yes, these blueberry muffins are perfect for breakfast the next morning. Thanks for such a great and easy blueberry muffins recipe.

  15. Nat says:

    I also have the same question. Why do you fill up the empty muffin cups with water? do you put the muffin batter in the cups with water?

  16. Rasa Malaysia says:

    Dora – I am not sure about the filling empty cups with water instructions. I followed the recipe exactly, if I were to guess, I think it’s to make sure that the empty tins don’t get overheated, especially if you have a 18-tins muffin pan. Just a wild guess.

    Nat – I got your comment and published it but somewhere it doesn’t appear. I don’t know why?!

  17. Dora says:

    That's okay, thanks for taking time to reply anyway. Much appreciated. I thought it had something to do with making the muffins more moist / fluffier.

    I like your revamped layout, btw – side bar & blue background for recipe. Not that it wasn't nice but it just got nicer :)

  18. Anonymous says:

    filling the cups half with water creates slight steam in the oven which keeps the air moist and hence the muffins moist, should do this with most oven cooking, it prevents drying out. and i iwll def try this recipe, im searching for the ultimate muffin recipe after eating the best muffin just last week, would die for its recipe!

  19. Ivy says:

    My favorite! Just an idea, if you are looking for healthier, try replacing at least half of the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour instead. You probably won’t notice much difference in taste, but you will be getting more fiber, and fiber is the stuff that acts like little scrub brushes in our insides to keep us ‘clean’.
    I will try the recipe right now!

  20. Jas says:

    My sis secret recipe – add shredded coconut..d berry & d coconut blended together awesomely well..must try :)

  21. Gloria says:

    Most muffin trays have 12 cups. This recipe only requires 10, to line with paper cups or grease, then fill the other two left with half water.

  22. May says:

    is your mearsurement in US or UK or ect…???cos I notice there’s few different measurement converesion chart around.

    Thks!!

  23. Bryan says:

    Tried couple times making muffins but sometimes, the rise of muffins are uneven (crooked up on one side) and some are even. Does this got to do with uneven oven heat or the technique of pouring muffin into tray?

  24. #1 Muffin Lover says:

    Your recipes sound great! I’m going to go try one right now! :)

  25. I tried this at home… the taste was amazing but I think I can do better…

  27. Gorgeous muffins! Matcha icecream with blueberries on top, sounds really yummy!

  28. micapple says:

    Should I use fresh or dried blueberries?
    Can the better be replaced by vegetable oil?
