After a very long week my husband finally arrived home last night at midnight. And that was after sitting in a meeting all day (all week) and a 7 1/2 hour drive home.
So I took pity on him and made him one of his favorites this morning. Blueberry muffins loaded with blueberries and a delicious side of local, organic, bacon.
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to the smell of warm blueberry muffins and bacon?
Blueberry Yogurt Muffins
2 Cups of Mama’s All Purpose Almond Flour
2 teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 1/4 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum
1/4 (rounded) teaspoon of Kosher Salt
1/2 Cup of Dairy Free Butter
1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
1 Individual Sized Container of Dairy Free Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup of Almond Milk
2 Cups of Frozen Blueberries (or a little more)
Raw Sugar For Sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins, set aside. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, xanthum gum and salt. Whisk and set aside.
In a stand mixer cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, scrape down. Add sugar, yogurt, egg, vanilla, and milk. Beat for about 30 seconds or so until thoroughly combined. It will look curdled. Add the dry mixture to the wet and fold in with a spatula just until thoroughly combined. Fold in blueberries.
Fill muffin liners and bake for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
You are so kind to your husband, April! And very kind to us too for sharing the recipe, thanks! Mmm… blueberries…
I like to keep him around. Muffins and bacon help. 😉
they say a way to a mans heart is through his stomach, personally i think it is the other way around!. gorgeous muffins, I am hopeless at muffins and alllergic to almonds ( a newish problem) but I adore blueberries. what about oat flour? can I make them with oat flour, and what is the gum for? c
The xanthan gum acts like a gluten and keeps things together.
That’s a very long drive home. I love the look of these – the blueberries really do give them a pretty colour xx
I’m no stranger to the long drive, April, though mine normally ends with a Manhattan. 🙂
Blueberry-yogurt muffins are a favorite. The mix of sweet and sour is a wonderful flavor combination. You’re right, too, about waking up to the aromas of muffins and bacon. That’s a great start for any day.
Do you have any suggestions to replace yogurt? I can’t eat dairy and my husband can’t eat coconut or almond. So you can see the yogurt problem. Love the recipe though!
The recipe calls for dairy free yogurt. I like to use coconut milk yogurt but there are also almond milk yogurts, rice milk yogurts, soy yogurts, and sheep and goat’s milk yogurts you can try. As far as the almonds in the Mama’s flour, you could probably try any general gf flour that does not contain almonds or nut flours. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
