Blueberry Skyr Muffins


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!

12 muffins


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • ½ cup brown sugar, or more to taste

  • 1 (5.3 ounce) container blueberry skyr (such as Siggi's®)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey

  • 2 large lemons, zested

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups frozen blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

  5. 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.
