Can I use frozen blueberries for muffins?

Yes, you can. I actually prefer to use frozen blueberries because they do not fall apart when you mix them in.

How do you add blueberries to muffins?

I like to freeze my blueberries first so they don’t fall apart when I mix them. You can just buy frozen if you want too and use a spatula or spoon to gently fold the blueberries into the muffin batter.

Let’s get started with these Easy Blueberry Muffins!

Ingredients to make blueberry muffins

Ingredients you need:

(Makes 12 regular size muffins)

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Baking Powder
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Extract – You can use almond extract if you prefer.
  • Blueberries (fresh or frozen)

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS:

  • Preheat oven to 400º F (Makes 12 regular size muffins)
  • In a large bowl whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Use a measuring cup (I use a glass measuring cup) that holds at least 1 cup and add vegetable oil, add the egg and then fill the cup to the 1-cup line with milk (about ⅓ to a ½ cup of milk).
  • Add vanilla and whisk until combined.
  • Add milk mixture to the bowl with all purpose flour and sugar (the dry ingredients) then use a fork to combine. Do not over mix. (The muffin batter will be pretty thick).
  • Add blueberries (I like to freeze my blueberries first so they don’t fall apart when I mix them. You can just buy frozen if you want too) and use a spatula or spoon to gently fold the blueberries into the muffin batter.
  • Divide the batter between the muffin cups filling about ½ full using your ice cream scoop.

  • Sprinkle a little granulated sugar on top of each muffin.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick insert comes out clean.

Enjoy!

What pan is needed for blueberry muffins?

You can certainly use what you have on hand but I have found a good pan is the start to a good recipe. I have the Rachael Ray muffin pans here. There are several other options of muffin pans and many are on sale!

Another idea is to use a mini-muffin pan. Mini muffins are fun to eat and another tasty option for breakfast or brunch.

Keep in mind the smaller size will take less time to cook and the total cooking time will need to be adjusted. They are faster to cook and easier to eat.

I love my Wilton mini muffin tins, but for just a few dollars more you can get a silicone pan. These are great because the mini muffins just pop out so much easier.

How to freeze blueberry muffins:

This recipe freezes great! I suggest that you bake them as directed. Allow them to cool and then place them in a freezer bag to freeze.

These will stay good for up to 6 months but they never last that long in my house. You can then pull just one or 2 out if you want and reheat them in the microwave for a delicious and easy breakfast idea.

This is a great recipe to freeze if you have guests coming. You can have homemade muffins to serve.

We also like to freeze the muffins and take them when we are traveling. They are perfect for road trips, vacation and more.

The savings adds up and they are so easy to make and freeze. You will love having them on hand for quick meals.

It is so easy to double or even triple this recipe to make some specifically for the freezer. We do this all the time and having great food in the freezer helps to keep our expenses down.

We are less tempted to grab meals and snacks on the go if we have such easy and delicious food in the freezer. This is the perfect grab and go idea!

How to store blueberry muffins:

You can put the blueberry muffins in an air tight container or a resealable bag. Either will work fine.

Money saving tip:

Buy blueberries when they are in season. Blueberries will be their tastiest and their cheapest around August.

Buy them at their lowest price and then freeze them to save money. Then use those frozen blueberries to make this easy blueberry muffin recipe.

I highly recommend using a cookie scoop to fill the muffin tins. 

You will thank me later because it saves so much time with this recipe and many others on filling the muffin tins. Plus, they are not expensive.

I bought the three pack, so I can use the smaller two for cookies or meatballs and then the bigger one to fill up these muffins and cupcakes. They will get lots of use and you will be glad you bought them.

We really use these frequently for so many recipes. You will be so glad you went ahead and ordered a set!

After a lot of trial and error I was so happy to finally get it right! This is truly the best blueberry muffin recipe. It’s absolutely delicious and has just the right amount of blueberries. You can also add sour cream for a change and to get a little bit different flavor.

This great recipe has a ton of flavor and it is sure to be a hit with the entire family.

    Stumbled upon this recipe a few weeks ago. Such an easy recipe to follow with ingredients I always have on hand. Very delicious. My husband who is not a fan of blueberries or muffins, ate 2!

  2. 5 stars
    These are so delicious! My whole family loved them. I put the sugar in the batter instead of on top.
    Amazing recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    I have never left a review before but this deserves one. I have been using this recipe for a while now and it is so easy and versatile! I have made it with blueberries, chocolate chips, raspberries, strawberries and banana and pecan. They have all been DELICIOUS! When I use raspberries or strawberries, I reduce them down on the stove with a little bit of sugar and lemon juice, then fold into batter after it cools. This is a magic muffin recipe! You can turn it into whatever you want!

  4. Leah – Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. I appreciate it so much and I’m so glad you enjoy the recipe!

  5. This is a wonderful recipe! I used Sugar Free French Vanilla creamer 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup of water! About a cup and a half of frozen blueberries! They turned out beautiful! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  6. I’m so glad that you enjoyed this recipe and that it worked with your creamer substitute!

  7. Great recipe ?
    I was wondering if this recipe could be made gluten free. I was planning to make some blueberries muffins for my coworkers. Any tips would be greatly appreciated..

  8. I haven’t tried it yet but I think it would work great with the Gluten Free 1:1 baking flour. All the other ingredients would stay the same. If you try it out, please let us know how it turns out!
