Blueberry Muffins for Two

When I wake up on a Saturday morning and I want just want something quick and easy these blueberry muffins are great!  They are loaded with sweet juicy blueberries and the hint of lemon zest adds just the right amount of tartness.  This recipe only makes 4 muffins, two for each of you and you’ll want two; one just won’t cut it!  I could have had all four but we’re supposed to be practicing a little restraint here.  I mean that’s what this site is all about!  Portion control for two! Plus, it’s not nice to not share.  🙂  


Blueberries are one of those fruits you can get at the grocery store when they aren’t in season and they still taste really good.  


Blend the dry ingredients together in a bowl and whisk the wet ingredients, (yogurt, egg, and lemon zest) until smooth in another bowl.  After mixing both together gently fold in the blueberries and coconut oil, or butter if you prefer.


Sprinkle the lemon zest-sugar mixture before baking.

Bake in a 325 degree oven until golden and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes, rotating halfway through baking.

…and you’re done!  See how easy that was?  Remember to share and if you don’t feel like you’ve had enough bake them again on Sunday morning! 🙂

  8. 1⁄4 cup blueberry yogurt or plain if you don't have blueberry
  9. 1 large egg at room temperature
  10. 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted and cooled, or butter if you prefer
  11. 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

        I’ve never tried greek yogurt but I’d give it a try! You can omit the zest. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, Christine, a quick question: Can low fat or fat free Greek yogurt be used? This is what I normally have in my fridge.

      Hi Kathy,

      You can substitute low-fat yogurt for full fat although the muffin might be a bit chewier. Give it a try though as it will probably be just fine. Thanks for stopping by!
