Whole wheat muffins?
Bake up a batch of our Easy Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins and see how fast your family comes to the breakfast table! In fact, with a prep time of under 10 minutes, you might bake these frequently. For many, these muffins provide an easy grab and go breakfast food.
And, aside from their deep golden color, no one will guess these moist, tender, and delicious muffins are 100% whole wheat. Indeed, we find that the whole wheat deepens the flavor. Of course, you might choose to use a different flour, perhaps oat.
Although they stand out at breakfast, these muffins make a great snack, too. In fact, we find they seem to be a favorite afternoon boost.
Blueberries make these delicious. However, consider substituting other small fruit occasionally. For instance, blackberries, raspberries, and even cranberries blend well into these breakfast treats.

Tips for our Easy Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
- Reduce the sugar by substituting half or all of the brown sugar with Allulose. You might also increase your cinnamon slightly to increase the flavor component.
- In fact, you can boost them further by substituting half the butter with applesauce.
- Need mini muffins? This recipe makes about 3 dozen small muffins. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 9 to 10 minutes. Test one muffin with a toothpick to see if they are done.
- Want a nutrition boost? Replace 1/4 cup of the flour with ground flaxseed. You won’t notice the flavor difference.
- And, when considering other substitutes, try your favorite fresh or frozen fruit such as other berries. Of course, you might prefer to chop up an apple.
- Use caution when stirring. In fact, most quick breads become tough if over mixed. As such, stir just until mixed.
