Blackberry Yogurt Muffins

muffin1
Well, we made it through another long weekend! It came and went so quickly! That is one thing that I hate about long weekends. You have so much fun, but it goes by too quickly! We had a lot of fun at the coast and had some great weather. Slept in, ate some great food and took our times doing what we wanted. No rushing around!
family-1 This is a great recipe for lazy long weekends or for make-ahead breakfasts. Is there anything better than fresh muffins out of the oven with butter slathered all over them? I submit that there is not. Don’t you love a good muffin? I certainly do! They’re comforting and they make the house smell wonderful. These muffins didn’t last long in my house. I made them during one of my daughters naps and were half gone before she woke up! That should tell you something! Lol!

Anyways, hope you all had a great long weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow! But in the mean time, try out some of these muffins!

      You can find it in the health foods section. A really healthy fat to work with.

    I love muffins for breakfast. They make great on the go options for weekday mornings, but when I have extra time on the weekends, there’s nothing better than a cup of coffee and a warm muffin. Enjoy your extra relaxation time today! :)

    I googled a recipe for yogurt muffins and came upon yours. So far, I’ve only tasted the batter…tastes like the most delicious cupcake! I’m waiting, impatiently, for the moist, crumbly-less final product to come to me. In the meantime, let me tell you the changes I made: I subbed 1/4 cup oatmeal for some flour; hefty dash of vanilla, probably 1 1/2 tsp (we like the stuff immensely); 1/4 cup sucanat for some of the sugar; wallaby plain yogurt, not greek; cranberries for blackberries. So I have to apologize for the changes, but my changes wouldn’t exist without your beautiful recipe (which I will one day make, unadulterated).
    OK…yum! I should not have added the milk since I used regular yogurt; that thought occurred to me just as I was adding the milk. This caused them to sink in the middle. So delicious, anyway!
    p.s. your family is lovely!

    I have made these twice now and they are AMAZING! Seriously, it’s taking everything I have right now not to drive to the store and buy up all the ingredients needed to make these again.

    I thought from the ingredient list it was either 3tbsp of coconut oil or butter, but I see the first direction is to “mix coconut oil and butter together”… so would that be 3 tbsp of coconut oil and butter or a 1.5 tbsp of each to equal 3 tbsp? Sorry, I appear to be the only one unclear on this, but would really like to make these and want them to turn out right!

    I woke up this morning and could not stop thinking about this recipe so I decided to give them a try… all I can say is WOW!!! I am not a yogurt fan at all so I did add a bit more vanilla and the end result was the most amazing muffin I have ever had! I’m thinking of trying them with strawberries next! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    Honestly, I don’t know that I’ve ever eaten a tastier homemade muffin!! I used blueberries instead of blackberries because I don’t like seeds. But nevertheless these are absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!

    Hi!
    Can’t wait to try out this lipsmacking recipe! Just wanted to know if I can use regular butter (salted/unsalted) instead of coconut butter.

    Thanks so much for sharing! :D

      yup! any butter is fine to use instead!

    Hi, Lauren,
    I’ve made these muffins three times already! I’m OBSESSED. Last time, I used whole wheat flour and still really liked them! They were a bit less sweet with whole wheat flour, so I was thinking I might dust them with a little turbinado sugar on top next time. (Trying to switch the fam to all whole grains.) Anyway, question= I bought coconut oil yesterday at Trader Joes- unrefined, virgin organic coconut oil. I’ve never cooked with it before but have read up on it and it’s SO good for you! With your recipe, would I melt the coconut oil first, or just spoon it in as is? I know, what a rookie question, right?

    I used the same basic recipe but I only had blueberries, so I used those instead, and your picture made me want to put orange in there, so I squeezed orange juice from an orange and used tr orange zest. They are amazing! Thank you!
