What are Mixed Berries?
Mixed berries is the name for a combination or blend of different types of berries. Typically this mix includes strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. It can even include other types of berries like cherries.
Mixed berries are typically used in desserts like berry crisp and breakfast recipes like smoothies.
In these triple berry muffins, I used blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. But, you could omit some of these berries or swap them out to better fit your family’s preferences or to use what you have on hand!
You’ll likely already have most of the ingredients for mixed berry muffins in your pantry and refrigerator! Just grab the berries you need, and any other missing ingredients, and get to baking.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- all purpose flour
- old fashioned rolled oats

You can use a gluten-free 1:1 flour substitute, such as King Arthur Measure for Measure Flour, to make this recipe without gluten. Be sure to grab gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats too!

How to Make Mixed Berry Muffins
Making mixed berry muffins is so easy! Whether you’re a pro in the kitchen or not, you can easily whip up a batch of these delicious treats.
Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F and line a muffin tin with 12 liners. You can use paper liners or reusable silicone cupcake liners in your muffin pan.
Grab a large mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until thoroughly combined.
In a large glass measuring cup, combine almond milk, coconut oil, greek yogurt, eggs, and vanilla extract.
If you don’t have a large enough measuring cup, you can combine all of the wet ingredients in a small bowl.
Create a large well in the middle of your dry ingredients by pushing everything away from the center with your hands. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the well and gently mix them into the dry ingredients.
Pour the blueberries, strawberries and raspberries into the muffin mixture and gently fold them in.
Hot Tip: Do not overmix the blueberries or they will begin to get mushy and their color will bleed into the muffin batter.
Using a cookie scoop or a ¼ measuring cup, fill each muffin tin until it is ¾ of the way full.
Place the muffins in the preheated oven and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the mixed berry muffins bounce back when gently touched.
After you take them out of the oven, place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
How to Store Muffins
I’ve actually got a whole post that will tell you how to best store and freeze muffins, but here’s a few pointers.
The best way to store leftover muffins depends on how soon you want to eat them:
- Within 3 days of baking them: Store them on the countertop at room temperature.
- In the next few days: Store them in the fridge, but with the risk of a change in texture. Alternatively, store what you’ll eat in the next few days using the countertop method, then freeze the rest.
- Within the next 3 months: Store them in the freezer — reheat when you get a muffin craving!
Most importantly, make sure the muffins are fully cooled before storing them.
Fresh berries will provide a stronger, fresher flavor in these muffins, but it is okay to substitute for frozen berries.
Your muffins may need one or two minutes more bake time if you use frozen berries, so just keep an eye on them. Most importantly, just make sure that the frozen fruit is still small chunks. Don’t use full size, frozen, strawberries. They still need to be diced!
The hidden secret to keeping these healthy muffins moist is the yogurt! It's the key ingredient to locking in the perfect amount of moisture and help keeping the muffins from drying out. Be sure to let your muffins fully cool before storing them, otherwise they can get really soggy and mushy. I’ve got a whole post on how to store and freeze muffins, so check that out for more tips!
