RECIPE | THE BEST BLUEBERRY MUFFINS I HAVE EVER EATEN

There is nothing quite like fresh homemade blueberry muffins for breakfast. Fresh blueberry anything, actually! Growing up my mom always made the Betty Crocker blueberry muffins from a box. I always loved them. I liked to help make them and draining the blueberries was especially fun because how many foods do you get to play with that are blue? I would smother my muffin in butter and gobble it up. I could really throw down when I was younger.

As I grew up, I carried on the same tradition and made my blueberry muffins the same way. From a box! Along the way I have tried to make blueberry muffins from scratch here and there, but they always came out really heavy and cakey or too bland. I had given up on making them.

About a week ago I came across this blueberry muffin recipe and honestly the muffins on her blog looked so good that I thought I would give it a try. Little did I know that I made the best decision of my day. I did have a whole box of fresh blueberries that needed a higher purpose after all. I am glad that I made them because they are THE BEST BLUEBERRY MUFFINS THAT I HAVE EVER EATEN!!! Did I yell that?!?!

I mean it! These are so fluffy and moist with just the perfect amount of berries and sweetness. I love the bursts of warm berries as you bite into these. I like that the recipe called for brown sugar instead of the regular granular sugar. I think that made a big difference. The sweet and cinnamon crumble on top to top it off was perfect. It didn’t take me long to throw these together either, which I like. This recipe also calls for buttermilk, which is super easy to make if you don’t have any and she also explains how to do that on her blog. She really took the time to make a really great post with detailed instructions. So I will let her do the teaching on this. You can find the recipe for these amazing muffins at this really cool blogged called Simply Delicious.

After you make these yummy little blueberry babies, smother them in butter and enjoy them with a glass of milk. That is my favorite way to eat them. I hope you get a chance to make these muffins and that you enjoy them as much as I do. I have a new favorite blueberry muffins recipe and I will be holding onto this one for a while.

Enjoy!
Blessings to all
