Blueberry and White Chocolate Muffins

These muffins were a huge hit with my kids!  I wanted to make them a little healthier so I adapted a Cooking Light recipe for blueberry muffins.  I loved that they used yogurt & canola instead of a stick of butter and I also threw some whole wheat flour into the batter instead of using all white flour.  Since the muffins were “healthier” I made them a little more special for the kids by adding white chocolate chips.  They both loved them and gobbled them right up.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Lightly spoon 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix well.

In a separate bowl combine the sugar, lemon zest, oil, vanilla, yogurt, and egg; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moist. Slowly add the flour mixture until just mixed. Gently fold in 1 cup of blueberries and most of the white chocolate chips. Spoon the batter evenly into a muffin tray. Push the remaining blueberries and white chocolate chips evenly into the tops of each muffin cup.

Place into the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let them cool for 5 minutes before placing them on a rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!

    I make whole wheat blueberry muffins all the time. They’re my absolute favorite! I’ve added chocolate chips, but never though of adding white chocolate, which I actually like better than milk chocolate. Can’t wait to make these!

    Very similar to some I made this week, but of course didn’t photograph. Mine weren’t as pretty as yours anyway. Yogurt makes a really moist muffin.

    These look awesome. Just wondering could you have gone all whole wheat flour?
    We’ll be making these soon!

    oh what a great idea!
    white chocolate when baked in goods takes on an almost creamy texture.
    excellent idea Pam
