Quick and easy one bowl blueberry muffins made with white whole wheat flour and lightly sweetened with honey. Bursting with fresh blueberries, these muffins are a perfect morning pick me up!
In my opinion freshly baked muffins are the best type of muffins, especially when you eat them still slightly warm with a little butter smothered on top. I mean does it get better than that?! These one-bowl blueberry muffins are sure to get you started in the morning. Made with white whole wheat flour and sweetened with honey and ripe bananas. Not to mention they are moist, tender, and bursting with blueberry flavor.
When I started testing this recipe I really wanted to make these muffins without any oil at all. I tested the recipe with avocados. Yes, avocados! Apparently because the avocados are buttery they’re supposed to add moisture to the muffins. Well I so hated the taste and felt like they were still pretty dry. Then I tested again with more bananas and the muffins tasted more like banana than blueberry. So ultimately I went back to my all time favorite baking fat: coconut oil. I used only 1/3 cup of coconut oil and the result: perfectly moist muffins.
They’re not overly sweet at all. You can sprinkle on some turbinado sugar or coconut sugar on top. Not only will the sugar give the muffins a pretty muffin top but also add slight sweetness. We love love these warm out of the oven (with a little butter…I know, I know…probably not the healthiest but SO worth it.) I think it’s that sweet and salty combo that does it for me every single time!
