Bek's Beautiful Blueberry, Yoghurt Spelt Muffins with a hint of Coconut!

I love blueberries but I don't even come close to loving them as much as my youngest does. From the moment she took that very first solids mouthful she has been a total foodie and never looked back!
She especially loves raw vegetables and fruit and she just loves blueberries so she is very excited when they are in season and sqqeals when she spots them in the shops in a big display, forget freedo frogs its a punnet of blueberries hands down!
Along with eating them fresh she loves them in salads, in fruit salads, in smoothies and in muffins!

I have always made blueberry muffins and now we make these really tasty spelt flour ones, our favourite flour to use now, balanced with the cream, thick natural yoghurt they have a great texture.
  • 1 punnet blueberries
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup dark coconut sugar (not the refined white one)
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla paste
  • 1 cup natural yoghurt ( I use beautiful Maleny Dairies)
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 & 1/2 cup organic wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • extra desiccated coconut and coconut sugar

  • Preheat oven to 180รง
  • Grease or line with cases muffin tray
  • Beat butter and coconut sugar together briefly, add vanilla essence
  • Add in the yoghurt, mix well.
  • Add in the egg and mix through well.
  • Stir in the milk.
  • Throw in around 3/4 of the blueberries and then very carefully fold through the flour and baking powder. Be very careful  not to over-mix at this stage or you will get tough muffins.
  • Pour into prepared tray.
  • In a small bowl mix a little coconut sugar with desiccated coconut.
  • Top each muffin with the left over blueberries and a sprinkling of the coconut mixture.
  • Bake until lightly golden on top and bounces back when touched approx 10-20 minutes depending on oven and size of muffins.
  • Enjoy!
  • Try the same recipe with blackberries, mulberries, raspberries!
  • You can use coconut yoghurt and coconut oil or olive oil for a vegan allergy friendly version if required.
  • Use stevia in place of coconut sugar if desired and leave the mixture off the top.
Toddler Tips
  • Make them toddler hand sized friendly by using a miniature muffin tray
  • These freeze well so are great for school lunches!


  1. I love blueberry muffins. Look yummy. dropping by from UBC.

  2. I so love blueberries. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!

  3. The muffins look great. And your blueberries are so BIG! I'll bet they taste good over there too. The blueberries I buy here in England lack a punch.

  4. My daughter is so obsessed with blueberries that she raids peoples fridges for them. Going to find a blueberry farm & let her go crazy :) will def make these x

  5. What's not to love about this recipe? Blueberries, yogurt, coconut sugar - do you have a substitute for butter, though?

    I'm having my breakfast now - Raspberry greek yogurt with an extra handful of fresh raspberries and a cup of coffee! Have a fabulous day Bek!

  7. Absolutely yummy~ I love anything to do with Blueberries so your recipe falls right into my area of desired foods. I like the idea that you add spelt to your recipe, I eat spelt bread daily~
    Thank you for your share and I look forward to more Blueberry recipes~

  8. Sounds nice. I love blueberries and I love blueberry muffins. I also appreciated some of the substitutions you provided. Our blueberry season here in upstate NY won't be until August but I will try to save this recipe somewhere. Right now, berries are very expensive in our stores! Alana

  9. I have never used spelt flour before so will give this a go. I use frozen blueberries in cooking and they bake well. Thanks for the lovely recipe! Cheers, Tanya

  10. I've never tried baking with spelt flour before, but my kids love blueberries so I'll give it a go! I make a blueberry and raw almond mix in the blender and freeze it to use as a smoothie starter, they're big fans of that.

  11. these look amazing - I love blueberries!!!!!!


I love that you found yourself on my blog!
