How to Make Easy Blueberry Muffin Tops

Step 1

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter and light brown sugar. Mix on low until combined and there are no butter chunks.

Add in the yogurt and the bananas and mix to combine completely.

In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon and swirl together. Add into the mixing bowl with the butter and mix on low to combine into a batter.

Step 2

Refrigerated batter for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 3

Fold in the frozen blueberries, no need to thaw them!

Step 4

Scoop, using a 3-tablespoon scoop, into 12 balls onto the prepared baking sheets (6 scoops per sheet). Sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar.

Step 5

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops look puffy and set and the edges are lightly golden brown. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets.

FAQ's

What if I don’t have Greek yogurt?

You can use regular vanilla or plain yogurt if you don’t have Greek yogurt, that will work. Just be sure the yougurt you are using is not super runny or watery, you want it to be thick. Sour cream would also work in a pinch!

Can I use fresh blueberries?

Yes, fresh blueberries will also work!

What if I don’t have turbinado sugar?

That’s okay, this step is optional, but I really love the texture and subtle crunch that the turbinado sugar gives to the finished muffin tops! So, if you don’t have any, I highly recommend trying some out, this sugar also works really good for pie crust and biscotti.

How do you store muffin tops?

Muffin tops, just like muffins, should be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You could also store them in a cake dome.

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Tips for Easy Blueberry Muffin Tops

• Make sure your butter is soft. I love to leave butter out on the counter overnight to let it soften naturally! This is always your best method with softening butter.

• I use light brown sugar in this recipe, if you’re out, you can easily make your own Homemade Light Brown Sugar!

• Make sure your bananas are very ripe. When bananas ripen the starches turn into sugars, and this makes them sweet and perfect for baking.

• I use frozen blueberries in this recipe, making it super easy! No need to even thaw them, just add right into the batter. You can also use fresh if you have them on hand.
