Tips for making Blueberry muffins with greek yogurt
Gently stir the batter. When you are mixing the batter you don’t want to over stir. You also want to make sure you don’t mash the banana chunks when you add them into the mix.
Room temperature ingredients. Having room temperature milk, butter, and eggs when making muffins is going to give you perfectly fluffy muffins every time. When you use room temperature ingredients you get a smooth mixture that traps the air when mixing and then gives you fluffy muffins as they bake in the oven.
Fill the muffin liners appropriately. You do not want to over fill the muffin liners. Follow the directions for the specific muffin recipe, if the recipe doesn’t tell you how full stick to the 2/3 full rule.
Bake one tray at a time. Using the center of the oven rack and bake one tray of muffins at a time. This will give you the best homemade muffins results.
Fresh or Frozen Blueberries?
You can make these blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries or fresh. Personally I love them with fresh the most, but since I freeze blueberries a lot when I buy them in bulk when they are in season I also use frozen blueberries at times too.
Can I make these into mini muffins?
Yes you can totally make these into mini muffins, you will want to use a mini muffin tray and muffin liners and then cut the bake time in half.

How to Store Muffins
Allow the muffins to cool and then place them in a plastic zip close bag and store them at room temperature. You can also store them in an airtight container. To do so line an airtight container with paper towels. Then, place the muffins in one layer. Top the muffins with another set of paper towels and seal the lid. These muffins will keep for up to 3 days, if they actually last that long in your house.
How to reheat blueberry muffins
Nothing is better than a warm muffin right out of the oven, especially these simple coconut banana muffins but of course, they will eventually cool so you will need to reheat homemade muffins. These healthy banana coconut muffins taste amazing even when they are room temperature but I love them warmed up. All you have to do is pop them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to heat the muffins and they will be as warm as when they came out of the oven!

Blueberry muffins will last up to 6 months in the freezer.
To reheat the greek yogurt blueberry muffins remove from the freezer and heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
