Do you love berries? You do? Great! These mixed berry muffins are perfect for all you berry lovers out there. And, you can even mix and match your favorite berries to bake up a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
This mixed berry muffin recipe is filling, delicious, and – as is the case with most of the muffins I like to bake – cuts back on saturated fat while bumping up the fiber by using whole wheat flour. Here I went with a mix of all purpose flour with white whole wheat, but you could certainly use all whole wheat if you like. I just happened to use what I had on hand.
And speaking of using what you have on hand, I used a mix of blackberries and strawberries, but you can use blueberries, raspberries, or whatever you like!
Greek yogurt helps give the muffins a wonderful fluffy texture, and a little dash of cinnamon imparts the coziest flavors to pair with the berries. Seriously, these smell so amazing!
To make these mixed berry muffins, start by mixing your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Next, in a separate bowl, mix your wet ingredients together.
Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently mix together. After this add in the berries that you have already washed and sliced. If you’re using fresh berries, rinse them then slice up any larger berries such as strawberries and blackberries. If you’re using frozen berries, dust them with a little flour before gently mixing into the batter.
These mixed berry muffins freeze well, so making a batch on a weekend will give you muffins for days! I freeze them in a large freezer bag, then when I’m ready to eat one during the week, I’ll pop it in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds to warm it up.
Also, these mixed berry muffins are toddler approved, husband approved, and mom approved 🙂 Our family can’t get enough of them, and I hope you family will love them too! They’re definitely a hit in our house, and with less sugar, I never feel bad about serving one for breakfast paired with some Greek yogurt and an egg.Print
