Instant Pot blueberry muffins are the perfect bite size breakfast that’s quick & kids love! If you’re looking for a pressure cooker breakfast we’ve got it!
We made muffins in our pressure cooker the other morning and they were so fluffy and delicious!! If you’d like to make Instant Pot blueberry muffins too we will show you how easy they are and perfect for busy on the go morning when you need to grab something to eat and go! It’s one of our favorite breakfast Instant Pot recipes.
I grew up on blueberry muffins for breakfast, but my mom never had a way to bake them than in the oven using little muffin cups.
Those were good of course but now that I am OBSESSED with making everything in my pressure cooker I had to make an old favorite breakfast in this!
- And this is all you need, seriously it’s never been easier and you don’t have to heat up your oven or house to make them now.
Back in the day it was all about Jiffy muffin mix, let me say that those were okay but we’ve progressed beyond that and I will tell you the best way to make Instant Pot blueberry muffins:
- Use this blueberry muffin mix – it is the best and comes with actual blueberries in a can, not dried out that have to be rehydrated
- You will need an egg mold – there are lots of other Instant Pot egg mold recipes too that we will share below so you’ll be able to use this a ton
- Tablespoon measuring spoon is helpful – 2 heaping tbsp. of mix fits perfectly in each egg mold hole so you get exactly 2 batches out of one box of mix prepared
Here are a few photos of me making them and how full to fill each hole.
Tips for making the best Instant Pot blueberry muffins
- If you go with my suggestion and use the blueberry muffin mix I mentioned above, that has a can of blueberries instead of dried fruit, I’d suggest mixing all the other necessary ingredients and folding in the blueberries at the very end.
- This prevents them from being totally broken apart and you’ll get a better result.
- Do not overfill the holes in your pressure cooker egg mold
- Fill 3/4 full which is about 2 heaping tbsp. full
- Use a tbsp. measuring spoon, like the one you see here, to fill the holes to avoid a whopping mess
- Allow pot to naturally release for 5 minutes before releasing the rest of the steam
- This will make the muffins fluffier as they cool down gently
- Take the foil off immediately after removing your egg mold from the pot
- This will prevent your muffins from becoming wet on the top as steam will begin to drip off the foil on to your muffins
- Remove your blueberry muffins as soon as possible from the egg mold
- If you leave them in they will continue to cook and become a bit wet on the bottom
- I pop each one out on to a paper towel to cool off
Let’s share a few other Pressure Cooker breakfast recipes:

- Blueberry pancake bites are incredible
- Make an egg bacon and cheese bundt cake using this pressure cooker breakfast recipe
- We love pressure cooker churro bites – donuts
- Here are 4 different Instant Pot breakfast casserole ideas
Here’s what your Instant Pot muffins will look like immediately after removing the foil.
When you pop them out and flip them over they’ll be round and pretty. They really do come out fluffy and quite similar to baking them in the oven, other than browning on the top. I haven’t tried this with any other quick bread mixes but I assume it would work just the same using the timing I’ve explained.
You just don’t want to overfill them because the muffins will rise but there’s foil over the top so they’ll ooze and spread out over the mold and just not work.
If your kids love mini muffins like those called Little Bites in those small bags they will love these….and they’re much better than the packaged variety.
Of course you could always make homemade blueberry muffin mix and try that but I’m all about quick so using a quick bread is perfect for what I was looking for here.
- Let me know if you use another mix and you’d recommend it…we’ll give that a whirl too!
