Bisquick Blueberry Muffins On A Budget

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 ’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.

  • 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.

  4. Just wanted to add a note about freezing blueberries… never rinse them before you freeze them! Unlike when you do strawberries you don’t rinse the blueberries at all! Just bag them and freeze them. As another reader posted above they are very easy to pick out as much as you want and keep the rest frozen, if you don’t rinse them. If you do rinse they will stick together and be mushy when you try to use them. We have lots of pick your own here in Eastern NC!
