Bakery Style Blackberry Muffins

Low in fat and deliciously moist thanks to the addition of nonfat Greek yogurt, these sugar-topped blackberry muffins are sure to rival any berry muffins from your local bakery. And this recipe makes a small batch of just 6 muffins so it’s perfect when you don’t want the temptation of a dozen muffins just sitting on your counter.

Lightly sweetened with your favorite zero-calorie sweetener (Monkfruit, Swerve, Stevia, In the Raw, etc.), each muffin has just a light dusting of sanding sugar which is sprinkled on just before popping them into the oven.

While I prefer fresh berries, you can enjoy these muffins any time of the year by using frozen blackberries instead.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to use either fresh or frozen blackberries to make these muffins. I prefer fresh and since the berries at my local grocery store were not looking very good, I opted for frozen blackberries without any added sugar.

Use your favorite zero-calorie sugar substitute: Lankato Monkfruit, In the Raw, Stevia, Swerve, etc. are all good options. I’m on a monkfruit kick at the moment, so that’s what I have in my pantry.

Sanding sugar is a coarse sugar that is used for decorating baked goods (cookies, muffins, etc.) and can usually be found in the baking section of your grocery store. It generally comes in a variety of colors as well as white/clear.

Try making a blackberry muffin parfait by crumbling a muffin over some nonfat Greek yogurt and then topping with more fresh berries.
