Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 C canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 C plain traditional Greek yogurt
  • 4 C all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 C fresh or frozen blueberries tossed with 1 tbsp of flour just before adding to the batter
  • CRUMB TOPPING
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Make crumb topping by combining all ingredients in a bowl and pinching with your fingers until the butter is fully incorporated and it looks like coarse sand. Set aside.
  3. Combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla; mixing until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda.
  5. Alternately add 1/3 flour and 1/3 yogurt to the sugar mixture and repeat, stirring just slightly between each addition. The key to moist muffins is to keep the batter from becoming over mixed. Only mix until no dry spots remain- there will be lumps and that's okay.
  6. Gently fold in the blueberries, mixing only until they are evenly distributed.
  7. Scoop batter into muffin tin until 2/3 full. Spoon 1 1/2-2 tbsp of crumb mixture on top of each muffin (it will look like a lot of crumbs).
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with only moist crumbs.
  9. Serves 2 1/2 dozen

Notes

Tip: If you want to make sure that the berries don’t all sink to the bottom, much like this one below, toss them in a few tablespoons of flour before adding them to the batter. This will also help to keep the juices from running into the batter, making the muffin blue throughout. I've never tried using fat-free and don't know how it works
