Many people pair lemon with blueberries in muffins; like these Mutagen Lemon Blueberry Muffins (made with hidden spinach).
However, I did not have any lemons, only an orange. So, I mixed and matched a few recipes and came up with these scrumptious blueberry swirled beauties.
Sugar Substitutes for Orange Blueberry Muffins
I used a stevia for baking blend to make these. You can go with sugar or any sugar substitute for baking you prefer.
I would recommend using a powdered substitute, not a liquid one. If you go with liquid you may need to reduce the amount of orange juice for proper consistency.
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 tablespoon stevia for baking (or sugar or other sugar substitute)
- 1-2 fresh oranges
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup stevia for baking (or sugar or other sugar substitute)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- Preheat oven to 400℉. Line or grease muffin tins ( makes 6 jumbo or about 12 regular muffins).
- Using microplane or small side of box grater, zest the orange then juice it. Set both aside.
- In a small saucepan, simmer 1 cup blueberries with 1 tablespoon stevia. Mash berries and cook down to about ¼ cup.
- In a mixing bowl combine flour, 1 cup stevia, baking powder and orange zest.
- In a 2 cup or larger measuring cup, measure yogurt and add butter, egg and enough orange juice to make 1 ½ cups. Mix to combine.
- Fold the liquid ingredients into the blueberries with remaining ½ cup blueberries until moist.
- Fill muffin tins about ½ full, add blueberry sauce to the center, top with remaining batter. Swirl each muffin with a knife.
- Bake at 400℉ until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes depending on muffin size.
