Fresh or Frozen Berries
You can fresh or frozen berries for this berry muffin recipe. If you're using fresh, great, no adjustments needed.
If you're using frozen, the only thing you need to do is make sure the berries aren't frozen when you fold them into the muffin batter. If I'm using frozen berries for this recipe (I used frozen in these pics!) put the berries in a bowl and let them thaw. Before you fold them into the batter, drain the excess juice from the bowl and then fold in gently.
These mixed berry muffins are made with 1 1/2 cups of berries If you're using frozen berries you can add a little more and then you'll have 1 1/2 cups after the berries are thawed.
How to Make Sugar Crusted Muffins
This is the sugar (pictured above) I like to sprinkle on top of any blueberry muffins or these triple berry muffins. It takes just a minute but adds this sweet crunchy topping to these muffins. This sugar-crusted topping is made with raw sugar. It's a course sugar granule and kind of melts as the muffins cook.
Just add a teaspoon of raw sugar to your muffins before cooking them. The sugar will melt on top as the muffins bake and make the most amazing sugar-crusted muffin tops.

Triple Berry Muffin Recipe
The triple berries that work best for this recipe are blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Don't use a berries mix with strawberries. They have much higher water content and you muffins will turn out a little soggy. Stick to the smaller berries and you'll have a much better end result.
Mixed Berry Muffin Recipe Variations
- This is easily customizable to blueberry muffins. Simply substitute the mixed berries for fresh or frozen blueberries.
- If you're using frozen blueberries, simply let them thaw, drain the liquid off them and fold them into your batter.
- I've used flavored Greek yogurt before and it's turned out great. Plain Greek Yogurt is best but just about anything will do.
- I've also used gogurts and sour cream or a mixture of all, for the substitution.
- These would also be great with a lemon glaze on in place of the raw sugar. So many possibilities!
