Lime zest and juicy blueberries will make you think you’re biting into summer itself with these blueberry lime muffins! Greek yogurt and applesauce make these healthy lime muffins a winner!


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt*, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp agave or honey*
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 small lime (zest and juice)*
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and spray a 12-count muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray, or line with muffin liners. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together both flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the coconut palm sugar and yogurt together and stir until smooth. Add and combine the applesauce, agave/honey, and juice from the lime. Add the eggs one at a time, and then stir in the lime zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix! Fold in the blueberries gently.
  3. Distribute the batter evenly among the muffin pan cavities, filling them about 3/4 full. Bake the muffins for  16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Muffins keep on the counter in an airtight container for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to two months.


  1. I used 2% Greek yogurt, but you could easily substitute non-fat.
  2. You can use granulated white sugar in place of the coconut palm sugar.
  3. I use agave in my baking as I have a baby under 1 year of age, but honey or even maple syrup works just as well!
  4. You only need about 2 tablespoons of lime juice – if you have a very big lime, be sure to measure out 2 tablespoons.
  5. The muffins may stick to the liners while warm; if you wait until they’re completely cool they will not stick when you peel the liners away
