One of the ones that I made were Blueberry Muffins. We love blueberry muffins around here and I thought they would make a great breakfast on the kids exams days at school.
These came out so light and fluffy. While I didn’t taste “yogurt” in them, they are definitely a more tart tasting blueberry muffin between the yogurt and the fresh blueberries. (After making boxed blueberry muffins, which are much sweeter, it makes the tartness of these stand out quite a bit. They were yummy, just more tart.

Blueberry Muffins with Fage Total Greek Yogurt
- 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter , softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 Fage Total Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
2. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper or parchment liners.
3. In a large mixing bowl, use a stand mixer or a hand mixer, and cream the butter and sugar until they are light and fluffy.
4. Next add the egg until it is fully incorporated. Followed by the yogurt.
5. In a medium mixing bow, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
6. Add half of the dry mixture into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
7. Add the remaining dry ingredients into the batter and beat until all of the flour disappears. Be careful not to over mix.
8. Gently fold your blueberries in by hand using a rubber spatula or spoon. The batter will be very thick.
9. Fill your muffin cups 3/4 full.
10. Bake in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a tester inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean.
11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. That’s it! These will stay for several days in an airtight container or you can freeze them for several weeks. (I have not tried freezing them myself).
