Healthy & Moist Blueberry Muffins

Tell me, how many times have you picked a gigantic blueberry muffin along with a cup of coffee on your way to work or after jog? I did it a few times too. I just enjoy the crumbly-sweet top and soft but moist muffin combined with good coffee.

Sweet, slightly tart blueberries are beautiful to look at and to enjoy them anyway you like. I wanted to recreate the Deli style but a little bit healthier version by substituting Whole wheat flour instead of all purpose and drizzling the crystal sugar on top instead of butter-sugar crumbs. Lets jump right in.

Hearty-Healthy Whole wheat Blueberry Muffins to warm up your soul.


  • Whole Wheat Flour – 1 1/2 cup (Or mix of All purpose & Whole wheat)
  • Sugar – ¾ cup
  • Egg – 1
  • Milk of your choice – 1/3 cup
  • Salt – 1tsp
  • Baking powder – 2tsp
  • Vegetable oil – 1/3 cup
  • Fresh Blueberries – 1 cup


  1. Clean the fresh blueberries and let them dry on paper towel for 10-15 mins. Take them in a bowl, add 1 tbsp of flour and mix them gently. This will dust the blueberries and helps them not to sink lower in the muffin pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 F / 200 C degrees. Greece the muffin pan with oil or use muffin liners.
  3. In a bowl, combine both flours, sugar, salt & baking powder.
  4. Place oil in a measuring cup, add the egg and mix it well. Now, add the milk to fill the 1 cup. Mix this well and add to dry ingredients and combine.
  5. Next, fold the blueberries gently – Muffin dough is ready.
  6. Fill muffin cups to about 2/3 and sprinkle Crystal sugar on the top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 mins until the toothpick comes out clean.

  1. You can use only all purpose flour instead of the combination.
  2. The muffin cups can be filled to the top to get the deli styled oversized muffins.
  3. Deli style Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
