Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the mini muffins structure.

Baking powder and baking soda – both are necessary to make the mini blueberry muffins rise.

Buttermilk – adds flavor, moisture and makes the muffins super fluffy.

Granulated & brown sugar – sweetens the muffins. The brown sugar makes it extra moist! Either light or dark brown sugar will work.

Vegetable oil – keeps the blueberry muffins extra moist!

Butter – melted butter adds both flavor and moisture! I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Eggs – helps bind the ingredients.

Salt and vanilla extract – enhances flavor. Always use pure vanilla extract instead of imitation for best flavor.

Blueberries – the most important ingredient for blueberry muffins! You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen, do not thaw.

How To Make Mini Blueberry Muffins

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, granulated sugar, vegetable oil, melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth and well combined.

3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wets until almost combined, leaving a few streaks of flour. The batter will be thick!

4. Toss blueberries with about one tablespoon of flour then gently fold into batter until just combined. Do not over mix! If using frozen blueberries they may bleed into the batter like mine did.

Pro Tips For Mini Blueberry Muffins

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate; baking is a science after all!
  • Don’t over mix your batter! This will cause too much gluten development and nobody likes rubbery muffins so leave a few streaks of flour before adding the blueberries.
  • Toss the blueberries with about a tablespoon of flour before adding them to your batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Sprinkle raw sugar on top to get that signature crunchy muffin top. You could also use sparkling sugar.
