I fell in love with skyr when I visited Iceland a few years ago. It's a mild, thick yogurt and high in protein as an added bonus. I used blueberry-flavored skyr to make these muffins and it gave them such a tender texture!

  • Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Mix in blueberry yogurt, honey, and lemon zest.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add to the yogurt mixture and mix until well combined. Fold in blueberries using a spatula.

  • Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to bump up the amount of sugar if you like. I prefer lightly sweetened baked goods.

2.27.19 Like the recipe submitter I also was introduced to Skryr when visiting Iceland several years ago. We rented a house in Selfoss and the owner was gracious enough to stock the fridge with six containers. I m a yogurt lover and Icelandic yogurt (like Sigg s) is tangier than I think most of us in the U.S. are accustomed to. I typically don t like a lot of sweetness in anything these days but I would probably add a couple more tablespoons of brown sugar next time to compensate for the yogurt's tanginess. Gotta tell ya the muffin batter was really thick I was worried I was crushing the blueberries when folding them in and was concerned about how they would turn out. I almost added a little milk but I stayed true to the recipe and made no changes. Well they baked up into big beautiful blueberry muffins tender and moist with a pop of blueberry in just about every bite. Very nice way to start the day! Read More

I used plain skyr so I added a TBSP more of brown sugar. Had 1 lemon so I zested it and used juice from half the lemon. Used frozen blueberries so I gently tossed them in some flour so my batter wouldn’t turn purple. I added a tablespoon of milk because my batter was too thick. Baked in a loaf pan at 350F for 45 min. Moist and delicious! Read More

Mousie's family is Icelandic so using Skyr was a no-brainer. Nice recipe - thanks! BTW it's pronounced "skeer." Added bonus - I use Skyr in frozen yogurt as well. Read More

Delicious!!! I will definitely be making these muffins again and again. The blueberry skyr and lemon zest take these muffins to the next level. The batter was very thick (almost dough-like). I was worried that I had done something wrong but they turned out moist and fluffy. They are absolutely bursting with blueberries! Read More
