Made with rolled oats, yogurt, and a mixture of berries, these mixed berry muffins are nutritious, tasty, and full of fiber. Not only are they absolutely delicious served warm out of the oven but they store incredibly well in the fridge or freezer so you’ll have healthy, family-friendly snacks ready to go for days to come.
Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake. Not only can they be adapted to the seasons, but there are so many different ways to make a classic muffin recipe a little bit healthier. In fact, everything from the flour to the sweetener and the oil used in the recipe can be changed or adapted to make (what can be) an indulgent treat just a little bit lighter and more real food-based.
How to Make Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins
For this particular mixed berry muffin recipe, I opted to add rolled oats for some additional fiber, use brown sugar (and less of it) as opposed to refined white sugar, olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and added some plain yogurt to help keep the muffins moist and add a little boost of protein at the same time. Although this recipe calls for plain yogurt, you could certainly use Greek yogurt if you prefer, which would help to increase the overall protein content of the muffins.
To make these mixed berry muffins I used a combination of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, however, you could truly use any combination of fresh berries you enjoy (blackberries would be great!) and frozen berries would work equally well. Regardless of what combination you choose, these healthy mixed berry muffins are so golden, fluffy, and delicious, that nobody will even notice how good they are for you.
