Grab your muffin tin — here you’ll find a blueberry muffin recipe that’s just as comforting and indulgent-tasting as the ones at your favorite coffee shop, but will leave you feeling energized to tackle your day.

1. Vegan Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Here’s a hearty vegan blueberry muffin recipe that offers plenty of good nutrition, made with whole wheat flour and no refined sugar (the muffins are sweetened with maple syrup and a little coconut sugar). An “egg” made with chia or flax adds some fiber as well as providing structure to the muffins. Add a bit of lemon or orange zest to the batter, if you like.

A cinnamon-y oat crumble on top of these muffins make them feel like they came straight from the bakery. Whole wheat pastry flour is lighter than typical whole wheat, so the muffins have that delicate crumb. You can also sub in white whole wheat flour instead..

A combo of hearty gluten-free oat flour and almond flour give these muffins healthy fats and fiber, plus a rich flavor that’s so satisfying. They’re also dairy free and sweetened with maple syrup. We also love the touch of olive oil in these, which lends an ever-so-slightly savory edge.

5. Keto Blueberry Muffins

Usually “low carb” and “blueberry muffin recipe” wouldn’t go together, but now they can. Made with almond flour, eggs, and sour cream and sweetened with a granulated sugar-free sweetener, they’re low in carbs and rich in healthy fats. A touch of lemon zest and vanilla extract give these muffins extra sweetness without sugar.

6. Blueberry Banana Protein Muffins

Vanilla protein powder bumps up the protein in this muffin recipe, which also features whole wheat flour and sweetness from both banana and a touch of maple syrup. They’re also dairy free and flavored with cinnamon. If dairy isn’t an issue for you, feel free to swap dairy milk for the almond milk and use a whey protein powder.
