These healthy blueberry muffins with applesauce, spelt or whole wheat flour, and fresh blueberries came out fantastic! 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!

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

  1. Hi Olena, Just tried these muffins for the first time and I absolutely love it!!! Even though I used 2 bananas instead of applesauce, small grapes instead of blueberries, agave syrup instead of maple syrop :))))) …. and grapeseed oil, it turned out to be very delicuious. Thanks a lot for the recipe!

  2. Hi! I’m new to your website and I love it! I’ve made these muffins twice now, once with frozen blueberries and once with fresh. They were both delicious! The perfect treat without feeling guilty. I liked the ones with the frozen blueberries better, but my hubby liked them better with the fresh blueberries, so I guess it’s personal taste.

    Thanks for sharing such a great/easy recipe!

  3. I made these tonight, using fresh blueberries & raspberries. I too ate one hot out of the oven. They are excellent. My 4 & 2 year old will love these. Thank you. ~Amy

  4. LOVE THESE SO MUCH!! I’m making them now for the 2nd time, and I no longer feel guilty making yummy muffins for my family! They loved them! and I’m so glad I finally found an easy/clean/delish recipe!! Thank you thank you!!

  5. I just found this recipe through an affiliate and am eager to try it. BUT – and this is a good thing- they listed the nutritional information. I read through all the comments and priced that people were asking for that info, so here it is:

  6. Hi Linda! I was recently diagnosed as diabetic so I’m very much in the learning stages. I noticed that your husband is diabetic so you used agave nectar. Can you give me more details on its use? Is it a one to one ratio substitute? Does it change the flavor of foods? Etc…

    1. I will add my 5 cents re: taste and substitute because I used to use agave a lot.:) You can sub it in any recipe that calls for honey or maple syrup 1:1. It will barely change the taste. It is pretty mild tasting. Hope this helps a bit.:)

  7. This recipe is fantastic! I did not have anymore spelt flour so I used a little of coconut flour & added brown rice flour & buckwheat flour. Husband is diabetic so I used agave nectar. They are DELICIOUS. THANK YOU!!

  8. This is an amazing muffin recipe! We have a lot of blueberries right now and can’t keep up with eating them. I wanted a healthy recipe for my family. I followed the recipe exactly as is and the texture and flavor are perfect.

  9. I didn’t have any whole wheat flour, so I used oat flour. This is a deadly recipe. The muffins did not last long. Will be making more. Thank you for a great recipe.

  10. Delish! Absolutely wonderful! Recipe turned out great. Made them last night and enjoyed them this morning for breakfast!

  11. I just had to tell you how good these muffins are! I used frozen mixed berries because that’s all I had on hand and they taste great. The consistency of the muffins is so fluffy, yet filling. I don’t think anyone would even guess they’re healthy!

  12. Can a different berry be used besides blueberries? My daughter doesn’t like blueberries sadly. Looks delicious and how long will the muffins be good for after baking? 3 days or so?

  13. Olena, I feel the same as you do about feeling bad for baking fresh berries -but with figs! They are so hard to get where I live that when I do find some, all I want to do is enjoy them raw! Alas, perhaps I will never make fig baked goods. 🙂

    1. Hi Kate. Right?! Where do you live? Ironically I have this fig tree in my tiny backyard that grows like crazy. We have so many figs each summer that I don’t know what to do with. I give away to friends and neighbours. I freeze and put into smoothies. I am yet to hook my kids onto them but I feel like this summer might be it. I do not post recipes with figs because I figured very few of you guys have an abundance like I do. They are best fresh anyways! I think all fruit is best that way!

    1. Hi Ashley.I just double checked and nothing is missing. You must have gotten confused at “add eggs through salt”. Just add all ingredients starting from eggs and ending with salt. Follow the recipe further.:)
