Blueberry Muffins


blueberry-muffins

I am not big on making breakfast during the week. Cereal, toast, eggs or oatmeal but that is about it. We have a couple big bag of blueberries in the freezer and my daughter really wanted to make muffins. I had her defrost a couple of cups of the berries to make some muffins to have for breakfast during the week.

I am thinking of taking this recipe next week and doubling it using half for blueberry muffins and maybe half for chocolate chip and nuts. That way there are choices for everyone too.

Verdict:

I am not a big fan of muffins because I think they are basically cupcakes for breakfast. These are NOT healthy muffins but I actually liked these though because they weren’t very sweet. Β The blueberries were definitely the star of the show in these muffins. The blueberries were nicely distributed through the muffins and didn’t all float to the bottom of the muffins.

My kids can take one out and pop it in the microwave to warm it a bit for breakfast or a snack.

  2. I don’t care much for muffins myself. I don’t know why. Every once in awhile I crave one so I make boxed one’s with blueberries and serve with our fish meal. Jen

  5. This one doesn’t seem so unhealthy. Most muffin recipes are a bit on the greasy/oily side.

      You could use applesauce for the butter too to make it healthier.

  6. I’m not a muffin person myself either for breakfast. Give me yogurt, Cheerios or eggs and bacon any day! I’ve been cracking an egg into soup lately and poaching it on my workout days for breakfast. I’ve done that 3 times this week with two different soups. BUT, blueberry muffins are good because they usually aren’t too sweet.

      I generally don’t like blueberry anything as I find them a bit too tart. But, I was okay with these.
