Are Muffins for Breakfast Healthy?
Somewhere along the way muffins got a “bad rap” for being unhealthy when they really do make a great breakfast. While most store-bought muffins are very high in calories, fat, and sugar, homemade muffins can be made to easily fit into a healthy eating plan when healthy ingredients are used, such as whole grains, flax, oats, and more!
Ingredients Needed to Make Healthy Berry Muffins
- Almond milk
- Butter, melted and cooled
- Large eggs
- Dark brown sugar, packed
- White whole wheat flour
- Large rolled oats
- Baking powder
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground nutmeg
- Frozen mixed berries
- Cooking spray
Keep in mind, all of the ingredient amounts you’ll need are in the printable recipe card below.
Kitchen Tools and Equipment Needed for this Healthy Berry Muffins Recipe
- Muffin pan
- Muffin liners of your choosing (paper liners or silicone reusable liners)
- Bowl set (need a large and small bowl)
- Rubber spatula
- Toothpick (to test muffins for doneness)
- Wire cooling rack
How to Make Healthy Berry Muffins from Scratch
Mix together the dry ingredients until everything is blended together well.
Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Once muffin batter takes form, fold in 1½ cups frozen berries.
Fill up each lined section of the muffin tin with muffin batter, filling it up about 2/3 of the way.
Top each muffin cup with an additional 2-3 frozen berries before baking.
Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean when inserted in the center of a muffin.
Allow your freshly baked muffins to cool for 10 minutes on a wire cooling rack before serving. Enjoy!
Can You Use Frozen Berries for Muffins?
Yes! They help retain shape by remaining frozen during the baking process until they thaw in time for the muffins to be finished. I prefer using frozen berries instead of fresh, actually because fresh berries tend to bleed once they bake and pop inside the muffin batter. Recipes using fresh berries tend to call for using flour on the berries to minimize bleeding, but for my tastes and wanting this recipe to be an easy one, I chose to use frozen! Once you go frozen, you don’t want to go back to fresh!
Will The Berries Sink to the Bottom?
No, they won’t. Because we’ve used frozen berries instead of fresh berries, they will not move as they bake (as you can see in our images). Typically, fresh berries explode and bleed into the batter while moving to the bottom. But by using frozen berries, you avoid this issue!
Can You Make Mini Muffins with This Recipe?
Yes, absolutely! Omit the paper liners and just spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray and bake for potentially half the time, keeping an eye on the muffins to see how done they are. If they are lightly browned on top and spring back when you touch them, they are finished!
What Goes with This Muffin Recipe?
- Applewood bacon or maple sausage links! Either source of protein would taste delicious served alongside these healthy berry muffins!
- Eggs in any variety. Boiled eggs would be a great breakfast if you’re on the go, but if you’re at home and enjoying these easy berry muffins, enjoy a scrambled or over-easy egg or two! Our cream cheese omelets are a huge fave in our house and taste wonderfully with this recipe!
