Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins

Muffins speak to me in a spiritual level.

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins: they turn out so fluffly and moist it's unreal!

Like, picture me sitting in my desk (likely wearing my pyjamas but let’s pretend I’m being glam for once and I’m wearing Topshop). It’s all calm and quiet. I’m just there, studying for another chemistry exam, trying my best not to fail. Look at me, doing all that’s in my hands to memorize the structure of all these 3,4,4,5-tetramethylcyclohexa-2,5-dienone-why-on-earth-for-the-sake-of-all-that’s-sacred-can’t-you-have-a-normal-name compounds and just about to cry.

See me, all focused on the endless list of chemical reactions I should have memorised by now.

More like, see me all focused on making the 56th mug of tea of the day, still in my pyjamas, thinking of another way I can procrastinate (although no way will ever beat baking a loaf of this peanut butter caramel chocolate cake, let’s be honest here), blasting Dire Straits music because… it helps me think?

Anyway, picture me there. Silence everywhere. Still studying. Eyes on my chemistry book, mind and heart on that GoT I really, really should be watching again.

And then, boom, you hear them muffins speak. Voices velvety and inviting, just like the white chocolate frosting you need to put on top of them.

Muffins: Sup gurl, whatcha doin’

Me: Oh hey are these talking muffins I’m seeing? *closes book* What’s wrong with me. Ah, too much studying I guess. Time for another GoT chapter I’ve already watched seven times.

Voice of reason: Go back to your book, young lady. These complex carbohydrates reactions aren’t going to learn themselves. Plus I’m pretty sure you’ve watched that chapter like twenty times now.

-Me: *mutters* More like twenty-one but okay. Chemistry homework. Let’s do thisssssssssss.

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins: they turn out so fluffly and moist it's unreal!

-Muffins: BUT CONSUELO. HEY HEY HEY! LOOK AT US. WE’RE SO FLUFFY!

-Me: Please shut up. I’m trying to study here.

-Muffins: Girl look at how moist we are!!!!!!! Bursting with plump, juicy blueberries. Don’t you like blueberries? We know you love blueberries. It’s not as if we hadn’t seen you go through six boxes this week…

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins: they turn out so fluffly and moist it's unreal!

-Me: Ok. I like blueberries, so what. You’d be mad not to! Now, if you please went away I’M TRYING TO BE PRODUCTIVE HERE.

-Muffins: you’ve been trying to be “”””productive”””” for the past three weeks. Last time we checked, lying in bed in your pyjamas while you mourn the death of fictional characters for three days straight wasn’t what we’d call exactly productive… Now, if you please looked at us! WE’RE TASTY, INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS AND THE WHITE CHOCOLATE CREAM WE’RE TOPPED WITH IS SO TO DIE FOR THAT IT MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN MADE BY GEORGE R.R MARTIN!!

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins: they turn out so fluffly and moist it's unreal!

-Me: SHUT UP ALREADY! *stands up* *eats a whole tray of muffins so they’re no longer there to tempt her* 

Now that I think about it, it’s such a miracle that I still get to pass my chemistry exams.

But what can you do. I’m the kind of person who procrastinates while procrastinating. And what’s a better way to procrastinate than baking a batch of warm blueberry muffins, spending half an hour pretending they’re talking to you AND writing a blog post about it and lastly devouring said batch of muffins?

I mean, you could also pretend you’re a functional human being, skip the talking part (again, what’s wrong with me) and go straight to the muffin-demolishing bussiness. But why skip yet another excuse to procrastinate?

    Haha – too funny! But, muffins are brain food right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, demolishing them is just a way of feed your brain so you can get all that chemistry absorbed into your noggin!

    I always have the craving to make some muffins. And I love the moist texture yogurt gives them. I need fresh berries so I can get baking!

    How do you make that chocolate cream? I believe it wasn’t written down ๐Ÿ™ Why do I see 2 coffee mugs in the picture, are you not single? or am I seeing double?

    • Reply Consuelo April 21, 2015 at 6:15 pm

      Hi Allison! The chocolate cream recipe is just below the recipe for the muffins, in the recipe card.
      Also, I made these while I was at my parents’ so it was coffee for me and my mum (yeah still single haha) xx

    Hello Consuelo. I thought I better leave a comment to thank you for your delicious recipe! My boyfriend had a specific request (blueberry and white chocolate muffins) and I managed to find your recipe and decided to give it a go – the greek yoghurt really got me! I added white chocolate pieces into the batter as I knew I wouldn’t be patient enough to wait for the muffins to cool before adding icing. They were divine! Thanks so much and I love your gorgeous photography too. Lets hope his next request is something a little more healthy ๐Ÿ™‚ – or I’m able to show some more restraint! X

    Two things: (1) These look absolutely incredible, and (2) I identify with this post on a pretty deep level. Once food pops into my mind while I’m studying, I generally cannot continue being productive until I’ve gotten that food. Blueberry muffins are also my go-to for essay-writing sustenance. Just saying.
