Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins are not something you’d expect to see on a blog in January, especially since it’s not the season for blueberries and especially since everyone tries to eat healthier come the New Year.  The way I see it is, if you eat healthy 90% of the time, it’s okay to indulge 10% of the time, right?  At least that’s what I tell myself!  So go ahead and indulge with these Blueberry Muffins!

Blueberry Muffins | A Sweet Baker

I made these muffins to go with our breakfast on New Year’s Day.  We stayed at a friend’s house overnight and I thought muffins would be easy to take and most kids enjoy them.  It was the first time using this recipe and I think it’ll be a keeper in my house. The kids loved them and they were moist and full of flavor.  I can definitely see myself switching up the blueberries with some other fruit I have on hand at the time.

I know my kids love anything with blueberries but I would prefer raspberries or even cranberry-orange next time.   Because I used frozen blueberries for these muffins we can enjoy these through the winter months when fresh fruit is pricey or unavailable.

Speaking of winter months, how has the weather been where you are?  Where I live, we just had 3 Snow Days at our local schools, where one of those day the schools were actually closed!  We had blizzard warnings, wind chill warnings, snow squall warnings and TONS of snow fall.  Local businesses, municipal services and some of the snow plows even had to shut down. Needless to say, we’re all digging out from a big pile of snow and we’re all having a hard time finding places to put the white stuff. Winter has hit us hard here.

Even though we’re all slowly digging our way out of all of this snow we still have to eat!  I have some great recipes to share with you over the next while and I also have some more giveaways coming up.  If you haven’t already entered my Olympic Prize Pack giveaway make sure you do.   You can get yourself all geared up with some great Canada accessories!

    These look delicious! Blueberry muffins are my favourite! Perfect for anytime of day. Isn’t it nice to have kids back to school, finally! Let’s hope that winter is a little kinder to us from here on in :)

  3. Seeing blueberries is like a breath of fresh air — I haven’t used them in ages as they just haven’t been good around here for a while. These muffins look absolutely delicious!

  4. I think I’d be willing to drop the healthy eating for a morning or two. Otherwise, it’s always useful to have a good muffin recipe stashed away for later!

  5. The cold and snow was definitely pretty brutal this week – luckily it’s supposed to warm up tomorrow :) I love blueberry muffins and yours look fantastic Liz! Love how moist they look! I have a bag of frozen berries and can’t wait to give these a try, pinning and thanks for sharing :)

  6. There’s never a wrong time for blueberry muffins–they’re classic! Besides, isn’t that why frozen blueberries were invented? :) Sorry to hear about your intense cold–I don’t have much snow experience so for me, it’s a fun novelty…but I imagine when it’s closing schools and roads and keeping you indoors it’s not nearly as fun! Good luck and stay warm!

  7. We’ve had the bitter cold but with hardly any snow, so I’m kind of jealous of your snow! :) I guess I just need to make a batch of these muffins to warm the house up!

  8. Wooo for blueberry muffins! These would’ve seriously improved my LIFE during that crazy polar vortex last week. :)

  9. So excited for more blueberry recipes that will use some of the freezer berries I picked this summer! They’re in the oven right now! :-)

    • Yay! Let me know if you like them….I really did so I hope you enjoy! :)

      • They are AMAZING and the best I’ve made yet! LOVE this recipe!! <3 I doubled it, used my homemade vanilla and added 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and it was wonderful!! I plan to share some of these muffins with my Mom and sister-in-law (and plan to pass on the recipe too). Thank you for such a great recipe!

  10. These are so good!!!
