100% Rye Muffins with Blackberries and White Chocolate

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

These 100% rye muffins are moist, hearty, super delicious and bursting with berry goodness with just a touch of sweetness from Lindt white chocolate and xylitol. They are quick and very easy to prepare. The most important rule to follow when you bake muffins is to NOT OVER MIX the batter (just mix until the ingredients are moist, no need to stir until lump free and smooth) and you will have some fluffy muffins for either breakfast, afternoon snack or any time you crave a sweet treat. Use fresh berries if you can, otherwise, don't thaw the berries. You can prepare the batter in advance and let it rest overnight, covered in the fridge, next morning you divide the batter among the muffin liners and bake for breakfast. It's convenient and chilling the muffin batter also helps to improve the flavour and make them more fluffy and moist.

  • 2 Large eggs, at room-temperature
  • 1 Vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
  • 240 g Greek yoghurt, at room-temperature
  • 120 g Butter, melted
  • 250 g Dark rye flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 80 g Xylitol
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 100 g White chocolate, chopped
  • 250 g Blackberries (don't thaw if using frozen)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a muffin pan with 8 paper liners.
  2. Beat the eggs with a hand mixer until foamy. Split the vanilla bean down its length using a small sharp knife to scrape out the seeds. Add the vanilla seeds, Greek yoghurt and melted butter to the eggs. Mix until combined.
  3. Whisk together the rye flour, baking powder, baking soda, xylitol and a pinch of salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and fold until just combined.
  4. Add in chopped white chocolate and half of the blackberries. Divide the batter between 8 muffin liners and top with the remaining blackberries.
  5. Bake the muffins in the middle of hot oven for 28-32 minutes until golden brown. Remove and cool in the pan for 3-5 minutes. Turn out and enjoy while still warm.

Those do look really good, I like rye!

Norma2 3/7/23 00:56

Angie, you're right. If you stir the mixture a lot you activate the gluten and in this way we will obtain muffins with a compact crumb that is not desired.

Like that you left the blackberries whole, in the muffins! Feels like it's generously loaded.
