I love to bake after dinner, where I usually make a batch the night before, and when I come downstairs for breakfast, the muffins are waiting for me. I pour myself a large cup of coffee and check my emails. All ready for a new day!

Some Tips For Making The Best Blueberry Muffins
- You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries. If you do end up using frozen blueberries, do not thaw, as they will make your muffins soggy.
- All air fryers bake at different times. For best results, check your muffins halfway during the cooking process.
- Metal pans do a better job of keeping the muffin shape, but silicone muffin tins fit every air fryer.
How Do You Stop Blueberries From Sinking In Muffins?
This is such a common question; the trick is to toss the fresh blueberries in the flour batter before adding them into the wet batter.
This will help them from sinking to the bottom of your Air Fryer Blueberry Lemon Muffins.
Can You Use Frozen Blueberries Instead of Fresh?
Yes, this is a great way to use frozen blueberries if you do not have fresh ones on hand.
I would recommend that you do not defrost them before adding them to the batter. Otherwise, they will get too watery, and your batter will turn blue from the liquid.
Can I Use Dried Blueberries?
Yes, although they will not be moist and delicious. They are dried. They will never plump up like fresh blueberries.
You will get some of the flavors but none of a tender fresh or frozen blueberry texture.
Storing & Freezing Blueberry Muffins
Here are some great tips for storing your air fryer muffins.
First, bring them to room temperature. These are best eaten within two to three days.
Then if you would like to freeze them, let them cool down, and then place them in an airtight container. These will last for about 1 to 2 months. Then when you want to eat them, remove them from the freezer and either place them on the counter or refrigerator to thaw. YOu can even heat them in the air fryer.

Over the years, I have found these are great options (affiliate links included)
