Equipment needed for sourdough discard muffins

  • 12 cup muffin pan
  • Whisk/rubber spatula
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups

Tips and Modifications

  • If you want to reduce the amount of sugar or replace it with a different sugar that will work fine. I sometimes make these with coconut sugar or just 1/2 cup of sugar.
  • If you don’t want to use eggs, you can replace them with 1/2 cup of applesauce.
  • You can add any additional filling of your choice or even replace the blueberries with chocolate chips. Or add both!
  • You can also use frozen blueberries.
  • Your starter can be fed or unfed. If it is recently fed, it will make your muffins a bit more plump.

Sourdough Discard Blueberry Muffins

These sourdough discard blueberry muffins are easy, moist, and delicious. They are the perfect way to use your discard!
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Servings: 12 muffins
Calories: 200kcal


  • 12 cup muffin pan
  • whisk/rubber spatula
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sourdough starter discard
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • nonstick oil for muffin pan


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray your muffin pan with your choice of non-stick spray or use muffin tin liners.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl whisk your flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  • In a separate mixing bowl add your sugar, sourdough starter, vanilla extract, eggs, and butter. Mix until combined
  • Slowly add your wet mixture to your dry mixture and stir with your rubber spatula until everything is combined. Be careful not to overmix, it is okay if there are a few clumps.
  • Fold in your blueberries until divided fairly evenly
  • Spoon your batter into your muffin pan about 3/4 of the way full. You will barely have enough to fill the last few cups.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, insert a toothpick in the middle of a muffin to ensure it comes out clean.
  • Allow the muffins to rest for 5 minutes in the pan before removing them to rest on a cooling rack. To remove them use a butter knife to carefully lift them out.
  • These are best enjoyed right away but can be stored on your counter in an airtight container for 24 hours. Just make sure they are fully cooled. Enjoy!
