Can you use fresh blueberries in muffins?

Yes. My preference is to use fresh blueberries whenever possible. Some recipes call for frozen blueberries instead. If you use fresh in place of frozen or the other way around, you may need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe. It’s best to stick with the ingredients the recipe asks for if you aren’t sure.

How do I make blueberry muffins from scratch?

Just follow the simple recipe below. It’s one of my favorites. And I get delicious, classic blueberry muffins every time. If you want to make these blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries, decrease the milk by about a tablespoon to account for extra water from the freezing process.
