Blueberry Muffins- #100bakeschallenge (24)

After the Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins went down well the other week, I’ve not made any more muffins since. Such a shame as they’re so easy to make. So different to shop bought in size and in terms of sweetness. These muffins are perfect for a breakfast on the go or a snack with a steaming mug of coffee or tea. They even have added porridge oats in which gives the muffins a great texture and keeps you feeling a bit fuller for longer.

I love my #100bakesposter. (Not scratched up to date in this photo). It was a Christmas present. I hope to get everything completed by the end of the year, well famous last words!

I wanted to bake a couple of things to scratch off my #100bakeschallenge poster so I found two things that I really wanted to bake: the aforementioned muffins and some Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies.

BLUEBERRY YOGHURT MUFFINS

You will need:

  • 325g plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 200g light brown soft sugar
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 2 eggs (I use medium)
  • 100ml full fat milk
  • 100g full fat natural yoghurt
  • 75ml sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125g blueberries

You will also need a 12 hole muffin tin and some paper muffin cases.

  • Pre-heat the oven. My oven is a fan one so I baked my muffins at 180oC (Gas 6).
  • LIne your tin with the cases.
  • Sift all the dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl: the flour, bicarb of soda, baking powder, sugar and porridge oats.
  • Stir to combine well.
  • In another bowl, put the eggs, milk, yoghurt and oil together and whisk until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold together carefully with a metal spoon. Try not to over mix these as it makes the mixture over heavy.
  • Finally, fold in the blueberries.
  • Spoon the muffin mixture carefully into the muffin cases.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen.
  • Cool in the tins for about 10 minutes and then remove to a wire cooling rack so the muffins can cool down completely.
  • These muffins are best eaten fresh but can last for 3 days in an airtight container.

Do you love muffins? What are your favourite flavours? Do let me know in the comments below. I’d love to bake more!

Happy Baking!
