Can I Use Frozen Blueberries For Blueberry Yogurt Muffins
You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in the Blueberry Yogurt Muffins. The reason why a lot of people reach for fresh is that it won’t color the batter. When you put in frozen blueberries they will bleed, and cause your batter to turn bluish toned. Some people don’t like that, so they only use fresh.
But if you don’t mind it changing the batter a little, go for frozen. Just try not to over mix once you pour your blueberries into the batter.
How Do You Stop Blueberries Sinking in Muffins?
Nothing is worse than sinking your teeth into your tasty muffins to find there are no blueberries except at the bottom of the muffin. Here is how you easily keep your blueberries throughout your batter.
Mix in a tablespoon of flour into your muffins, and coat them. Then fold your blueberries with the flour into the batter as the last step before you go to baking it. This will help them to float within the batter. So each bite has tender blueberries.
Will Greek Yogurt Work For the Blueberry Yogurt Muffins?
Yes! You can use any brand of yogurt you would like. Just reach for a vanilla yogurt as it will add some flavor to your muffins. If you opt for Greek yogurt it will add some protein to your muffins. It is a taste preference on what brand of yogurt you purchase for the muffins.
How Long Do Blueberry Muffins Last?
Once your blueberry muffins have cooled place them in an airtight container. Store them in the fridge or on the counter for up to two days. If you feel you won’t eat them fast enough, put them in the freezer.
Best Way to Freeze Blueberry Muffins
