Healthy Blueberry Muffins Recipe with applesauce, whole wheat flour, no sugar, and fresh or frozen blueberries. Super easy kid approved recipe with fantastic reviews!

These healthy blueberry muffins with applesauce, spelt or whole wheat flour, and fresh blueberries came out fantastic! And no sugar. No refined sugar.

Just check the comments below for yourself, wow. Moist and light, I highly recommend to make a double batch because both kids and husbands love these. I have warned you.

Usually, I prefer to eat my berries fresh, however these easy clean eating muffins deserve even the priciest supermarket January blueberries! I recommend to buy organic whenever you can because berries are on a Dirty Dozen list.

How to Make Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Blueberry Muffins Recipe Ingredients

Minimum ingredients: whole wheat or spelt flour, applesauce, maple syrup or honey, virtually any oil (healthy widely available options: extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil), eggs, a few handfuls of fresh or frozen blueberries, baking soda + powder, pure vanilla extract and salt. That’s it!

Blueberries for Healthy Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries is good enough. Frozen blueberries can be used too. My favourite low sugar blueberry muffins are with fresh blueberries but not a big deal.

healthy blueberry muffins batter

In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Whisk well to combine, making sure baking powder and soda have dissolved.

spelt blueberry muffins

Add whole wheat or spelt flour and stir gently to mix. Do not over mix.

Stir a few times and let batter sit for a few seconds to let flour absorb the moisture. Stir again. A few flour patches here and there are fine.

low sugar blueberry muffins

Add blueberries and give a few stirs.
