Bisquick Blueberry Muffins On A Budget

Overloaded with juicy blueberries and just the right amount of sweetness, these Bisquick blueberry muffins are so quick and easy to make with a baking mix.

Bisquick blueberry muffins

I was fortunate enough to get to visit Canada a few years back and was treated to the loveliest vision – my first real live slice of blueberry pie. We can get blueberries here, of course, but they cost so dear and I am always about saving money. So when I had my piece of blueberry pie in Ottawa, sitting in a little diner where folks flipped back and forth between French and English as easily as drawing breath, I was determined to convert this delicious pie into an affordable treat.

Sure enough, I came up with the best blueberry muffin recipe on a budget. There are two tricks to this recipe. The first is we’re using budget-friendly frozen blueberries. The second is my time-saving twist, which is a baking mix. I have a lot of rabbits in my hat that I pull out with the use of a baking mix, including some bar cookies that are out of this world, but you don’t always hear about using it to make muffins.

These Bisquick blueberry muffins are one of my favorites because they aren’t too sweet, they are very filling, and they really make the perfect setting to complement juicy blueberries. It doesn’t hurt that they’re awfully pretty and easy to make to boot. Let’s get baking!

How to Make Bisquick Blueberry Muffins

Place blueberries and 1/4 baking mix in small bowl.

Pour your blueberries into a small bowl and pour 1/4 cup of baking mix over them.

Stir together baking mix and blueberries.

Stir ’em up! This will keep them from sinking down into the bottom of your muffins.

Pour remaining baking mix into a large bowl.

Pour the remaining Bisquick mix into a large bowl.

Add all other ingredients to mixing bowl.

Add in your egg, milk, vegetable oil, and sugar.

Mix ingredients together to make muffin batter.

Give that a good stir. It will be lumpy and that’s okay.

Add blueberries and baking mix and gently stir.

Pour in your blueberries and baking mix and gently stir.

Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Pour muffin batter into prepared muffin pan and bake.

Evenly spoon the blueberry muffin recipe mix into each of the 12 regular-sized muffin cups.

Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly brown on top.

Eat warm, cool, or any way you like. These homemade blueberry muffins will always be deeeelicious!


  • Store leftover muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Zap them for 20 seconds in the microwave if you like ’em warm. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature or in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

  • Feel free to use your favorite berry to make this muffin recipe, or even a combination, like frozen blueberries and diced strawberries. I want to try a berry medley I found in the freezer section of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
  • If you have them, you can totally use fresh blueberries instead.
  • Ensure you don’t overmix the ingredients. This will keep your blueberry muffins light and fluffy.
  • If you prefer brown sugar, you can use half brown sugar and half granulated sugar. Another option is to use coconut sugar.
  • Top your Bisquick muffins with powdered sugar or a streusel topping. To make this, mix together 1/4 of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of softened butter, and 1 tablespoon of the Bisquick baking mix until it’s a crumbly texture. Add this on top of the muffin batter in the muffin pan before baking.
  • You can use any milk you like, including buttermilk to make them extra moist, almond milk, or soy milk.
  • To make gluten-free blueberry muffins, simply use a gluten-free Bisquick baking mix instead.

  1. I’m sorry for misspelling your name in my previous comment. As my hillbilly family would say,”My tongue was in front of my eyetooth and I couldn’t see what I was saying(typing)!

  2. I use this same recipe for my muffins, except I add 1/2 tsp. grated lemon zest. The lemon flavor complements the blueberries very well. Christie, thank you for this wonderful site.

  3. I wonder if I have ever thanked you for making my life easier? Thank you (or thanks again). I work full time and every little short cut helps me bring my family the homemade goodness that they have come to expect. Rather than using a mix I just haven’t made blueberry muffins in ages. Lack of time and motivation mostly. I have a gallon size freezer bag of frozen blueberries I put up the last time I found them on sale. I figured they were destined for smoothies only but this…this will make my crew very happy this weekend.

    1. I’ve been smiling from ear to ear from the very first sentence of your comment, so thank YOU! I just can’t tell you how much I appreciate y’all sitting through my ramblings and I’m tickled to DEATH each time someone tries a recipe. You sound just like me, I want to put the good meals on the table but we are so busy! I love my shortcuts!


  4. Homemade blueberry muffins are the best – I also love using diced strawberries! They’re sooo good eaten warm with some butter on them. 🙂 Thanks so much for the recipe.

    1. Fresh out of the oven! Whoooo they are good! Little more berry than muffin, but that’s cool!

  5. ya know a simple way to solve your blueberry problem?

    grow your own! I have 3 bushes and they are super easy to deal with I really do nothing to them except a little water during the horrendously hot summer months. Those 3 bushes provide us with tons of berries. It did take ours about 3yrs to get alot of berries although if we hadn’t had a very late freeze the yr before it may have only been 2.

    I have an awesome pie recipe that I make often and pancakes are also a fav. I use them fresh all summer long but also freeze them to have year round in fact those pancakes I spoke of were just made 2weekends ago:)

    maybe if I am lucky enough to be blessed with flat Christy the pie recipe is what I will share.

  6. Thanks Christy my hubbys favorite anything is blueberry and he has asked me to make some muffins but have never really come across a good recipe to try. I will try this one for sure. You are a lifesaver. Thanks so much for posting this.

  7. I make my blueberry muffins the same way. I just have one extra ingredient but other than that they are the same. Great minds think alike Christy. I was going through my recipes yesterday and saw it and thought I need to post it. So funny.
