Dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup blackberries, tossed in 1 Tbsp. flour* (if large, cut them in half)


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray a 12-count muffin tin with non-stick baking spray and set aside. 
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Add the eggs and sugar into the bowl of an electric stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat on high speed for 4-5 minutes, or until thick and light in color.
  • Set mixer to low speed and add in the Greek yogurt, melted butter, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Mix just until combined.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  • Gently fold in the blackberries. Batter will be thick.
  • Scoop muffins in prepared muffin tin (I like to use a cookie scoop for this). Sprinkle coarse sugar on top (optional) and bake for 19-20 minutes or until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes and then enjoy.



Tossing the fresh blackberries in a tablespoon or two of flour helps to prevent the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the muffins. You need just enough flour to give the blackberries a light coating. Folding the flour-coated blackberries into the batter is the very last step, fold gently so you don't break the blackberries.
