Blueberry Vanilla Muffins

Blueberry Vanilla Muffins- Emmas Little Kitchen

So the other day, or maybe more like a couple of months ago, my sissie Laura requested a recipe for wholewheat blueberry muffins, with “no bananas or other random ingredients please”. Message received. It has taken me a wee while to get around to creating her the perfect breakfast treat, but I think I finally have a winner in these Blueberry Vanilla Muffins!

As requested, they are made with wholewheat pastry flour. They also contain greek yoghurt for a little protein bump, and the addition of vanilla keeps the sugar a little lower than other muffin varieties. Having eaten several batches almost solo (this food blogging gig really is a chore…),  I can tell you that they make for a pretty satisfying breakfast.

Muffins are best eaten fresh on the day, but also freeze well if you make too many!
