Spent Grain Blueberry Walnut Muffins – Made with Siggi’s Yogurt


Once again we found ourselves with a lot of spent grain after a brew day and once again it seemed like a waste to throw it away. These muffins were totally improvised with ingredients we had around the house, but they turned out great. They are also very low in sugar and fat as far as muffins go (and just in general), so you can feel good about enjoying one with a homebrew or two.


  • 1 cup spent grain
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 8 oz. container Siggi’s strawberry yogurt (or other thick, Greek style yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda & powder, white & brown sugar and spent grain in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add egg, melted butter, yogurt and vanilla extract. Stir until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Gently stir in blueberries and walnuts.
  5. Spoon batter into a greased or lined muffin tin. Fill about 3/4 of the way, these babies will rise.
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until tops are a light golden brown.
  8. Cool on a wire rack, or use our method and cool them upside down on a plate. This seems to have the same results.
