If you have an egg allergy or don’t have eggs on hand, yet have a craving for blueberry muffins then this is the recipe for you! These muffins are beyond delicious, even better than the version made with eggs.

This recipe was inspired by our blueberry donuts, and pairs well with a tall glass of this homemade walnut milk.

❤️ Reasons to Love These Muffins

  • They’re moist and tender. We have found that these muffins are more moist and tender than the version we’ve made that contains eggs.
  • They have double the blueberry flavor. The crushed blueberries added to the batter in addition to whole blueberries add a lot of additional blueberry flavor.
  • They’re simple. They don’t require a lot of ingredients – just a handful of readily available ingredients.
  • They’re actually very easy to make and take just a few steps.
  • It’s a quick recipe. You can have these muffins on your table in 30 minutes or less.
  • They’re make-ahead friendly. It’s not always easy to get breakfast on the table, and it’s often an afterthought. We love the fact that these muffins can be made ahead and ready to go on a busy morning. They also freeze very well. See storage instructions below.

🫐 Ingredients

Eggless blueberry muffin ingredients
  • 2 cups self-rising flour. To make this recipe even simpler, we use self-rising flour. Self-rising flour already contains the baking powder and salt. If you don’t want to use self-rising flour, you can substitute all-purpose flour plus 3 teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt.
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar. Adds sweetness. For a sugar-free version we recommend Swerve granulated sugar. (affiliate link)
  • ½ cup milk.
  • ½ cup unsalted butter. Melted and cooled. We do not recommend substituting salted butter here. If using all-purpose flour as a substitute (see above), it’s okay to substitute salted butter but omit the salt.
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt. Acts as a binding agent. This ingredient helps to hold everything together helping to give these muffins their structure. In most muffin recipes, eggs act as the binding agent. Since we’re going eggless here, Greek yogurt is used instead with great results.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Adds flavor.
  • 2 cups blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen. If using frozen, measure out 2¼ cups.
  • 3 teaspoons granulated sugar. Optional. Sprinkled over the top of the batter before baking.

📝 Instructions

Add ½ cup of blueberries to a small bowl, and carefully crush them with the back of a fork. Take care because the juice tends to splatter. If using frozen blueberries, measure out a little more than ½ cup, thaw, then crush.

Spray a 12-well muffin pan with baking spray or line with cupcake liners. Fill each well to the top with batter.

Sprinkle granulated over the top of the batter, distributing evenly. This step is optional.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted toward the center comes out clean. Oven temperatures vary so begin to check for doneness at 25 minutes.

Let cool in pan for several minutes. Then invert muffins onto a wire rack to cool.

ℹ️ Substitutions

  • All Purpose Flour – As mentioned above, you can substitute all-purpose flour for the self-rising flour. Use 2 cups of all-purpose flour plus 3 teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt.
  • Sugar Free – Substitute Swerve products for the sugar used in this recipe: Swerve granulated sugar. (affiliate links)
  • Gluten Free – Substitute Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-Balking flour for the self-rising flour in this recipe. In this case, you will have to add 3 teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt.

💡 Variations

  • Eggless Raspberry Muffins – Substitute raspberries for the blueberries.
  • Eggless Blackberry Muffins – Substitute blackberries for the blueberries.
  • Eggless Strawberry Muffins – Substitute chopped strawberries for the blueberries. If you love strawberries, check out these strawberry muffins with ginger crumb topping. To make those muffins egg-free, substitute ¼ cup of plain Greek yogurt for the egg.

🥣 Equipment

🌡️ Storage

Place leftovers in an airtight container. They will keep in your pantry for up to a week. To freeze, place them in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

💭 Top tips

  • Take care when crushing the blueberries. They do tend to splatter.
  • Allow the batter to rest for about 10-20 minutes before baking. This will allow the gluten to relax resulting in more tender muffins.
  • Go ahead and fill each muffin cup to the top with batter. This will create nice muffin tops! Let’s admit it. Those are the best part of a muffin!
