The last time I went to the store, they had organic blueberries and raspberries on sale. They were buy one get one free, so I loaded up! Katie can sit an eat an entire container of raspberries (same) so those did not last very long. Rebecca also likes to sit and pick the plumpest blueberries from the containers and eat them mindlessly while reading or watching TV. I am happy for this healthy habit, because it negates all the chips and ice cream we eat during the summertime 😉
Yesterday I spied a couple more containers of blueberries left, so I asked them what they wanted me to make for breakfast; blueberry waffles, pancakes, or muffins. Pancakes was the number one resounding pick, but I knew I probably had plenty left for muffins as well!
So I made a recipe similar to this. Instead of the honey, I added one tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon of syrup, which was just the perfect amount of sweetness against the sweet but tart blueberries. They were a hit! Clean plates all around!

VERY Blueberry MuffinsIngredients
1 stick of unsalted butter, melted and cooled 2 large eggs 1/2 cups milk 2 cups all purpose flour 3/4 cup sugar, plus 1 teaspoon for the tops at the end 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 pints fresh blueberries (1 pint would be fine, but I wanted to use them all up) Directions- Preheat oven to 375 and line 2 6- cup muffin tins or 1 12-cup muffin tin with liners. Whisk the eggs, butter, and milk together in one bowl. In another bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients. Gently fold in the blueberries. Using an ice cream scoop, divide all the batter in the muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining sugar. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. The muffins should be golden brown and as with most baked goods, you can test it out with a toothpick or knife to make sure it comes out clean. Enjoy! Let cool a little- molten blueberries are no fun to bite in to =)
