Why this Recipe Works
The only thing better than a zucchini muffin is a zucchini muffin with blueberries! Wondering why this recipe is the best?
- Greek yogurt. I use greek yogurt in these muffins. This helps keep them moist even after storing and freezing!
- Lemon zest. A little lemon zest in the batter adds a fresh flavor without overpowering the blueberries.
- Can be served with or without glaze. The drizzle of lemon glaze on top adds a delightful finishing touch, but the muffins are moist and sweet enough to enjoy plain too.
- Easy to freeze. You can whip up a double batch. Eat half now, stash away the rest for a rainy day!
Greek yogurt. I used vanilla flavored yogurt. Plain yogurt can be used if you want less sweetness.
Blueberries. Fresh blueberries are best!
Lemon. You will need the zest for the muffins and the juice for the glaze.
Zucchini. Use our guide on how to shred zucchini. Can keep the skin on too!
Tips and Tricks
- Freezing shredded zucchini. Once grated, you can use the zucchini right away OR freeze it for later. I like to grate a ton of zucchini at once when I have abundance from my garden. Then add pull it out to thaw when you’re ready to bake!
- Zesting and juicing lemon. For easy juicing and zesting, microwave your lemon for 10 seconds. Use a microplane grater to remove the zest from the peel.
- How to freeze Blueberry Zucchini Muffins. Let muffins cool completely and drizzle on the glaze (if desired). Transfer muffins to freezer bags and keep frozen for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, thaw on the counter or overnight in the refrigerator.
Yes, you can use a food processor to shred the zucchini. Wash and slice into small enough pieces to fit into the bowl. Be careful not to puree! Stop processing when the zucchini becomes fine shreds.
Blueberry Zucchini Muffins stay good for about 2 days at room temperature.
Yes, but you will need to reduce the baking time to make mini muffins.
This recipe yields about 2 dozen blueberry zucchini muffins.
I don’t recommend using frozen blueberries for these as they tend to contain more moisture and “bleed” color into the muffins.

Blueberry zucchini muffins sound delicious and interesting! I love the health factor these muffins have, while also being super yummy 🙂
I usually am so bad about getting breakfast before noon. Although this week I started this no sugar thing (which BTW) and I’m trying to input all my food into my fitness pal app. So far, I am three for three for eating all my meals and not cheating on my intake! I totally say these muffins are health food…all I see are veggies and fruit!!!
Actually, now studies show that there’s no reason to eat breakfast and that fasting is good for you. I’m not a breakfast eater either.
If these were sitting on my kitchen counter, I’d have no problem eating breakfast every day!
