Weight Watchers Blueberry Muffins Recipe

These Weight Watchers Blueberry Muffins, made with yogurt and packed full of sweet plump blueberries, are just 2 Smart Points on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program!

When you have been following the Weight Watchers program for some time, you know what foods you are happy to ‘spend’ your Points on and what foods just aren’t worth it!

I love these 2 Smart Point Weight Watchers Blueberry Muffins and am extremely happy to use my Points on one once in a while.

When I first started Weight Watchers I was traveling through an International airport and was desperate for a coffee and a snack.

When I popped into Starbucks, ordered a black coffee and searched the cake counter for something I thought might be lowish points.

Then I decided on a skinny blueberry muffin, I was so shocked to find out that that it was 12 Smart Points!

However, the “full fat” version was 18 smart points!

I really love Blueberry Muffins but I can’t justify ‘spending’ 12 Smart Points on one muffin! So I tried some recipes and developed them.

These Weight Watcher Blueberry Muffins are only 2 Smart Points per muffins and are so worth it!

I’ll even let you into a secret! Eat one and it’s 2 Smart Points, eat two and that would be 4 Smart Points 

I no longer eat shop brought muffins! I just don’t think that they are worth it.

I have made a few muffin recipes over the years but this one is my favorite. It makes a lovely, light and fluffy muffin that rises well!

I definitely think that these Weight Watchers Blueberry Muffins are worth the 2 Smart Points when you are craving a sweet treat.

Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1.75 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp low fat spread
  • 2/3 cup sugar caster / superfine
  • 2 eggs medium
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla paste
  • 1.25 cups fat-free yogurt
  • 2 cups blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375oF / 190oC / 170oC (fan). Place muffin cases in a 12 hole muffin tin and set aside.
  2. Place the flour and baking soda in a bowl, mix to combine and set aside until later.
  3. In a separate bowl cream the butter and sugar together using a hand mixer, until the mixture is light and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to beat with the mixer. If the mixture starts to split, add a couple of tablespoons of the flour to the mix and continue using the hand mixer until the mixture combines into a creamy consistency.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract and the fat-free yogurt.
  5. Add the flour to the wet ingredients and fold in gently using a large spoon. Be careful not to be too heavy-handed at this point (although the mixture does need to be lump-free) just carry on folding until the mixture has combined!
  6. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  7. Using an ice cream scoop (or a spoon) fill the muffin cases 3/4 full with the mixture and place it on the middle shelf of your preheated oven.
  8. Cook for 15 to 17 minutes or until they have started to color and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool before serving.
