Easy Blueberry Muffins

Easy Blueberry Muffins - so simple to make my kids helped to make them.

I am a huge fan of warehouse clubs. The problem is sometimes I go overboard. I usually get more fruit than we end up consuming and I am stuck trying to figure out what to do with the rest. We freeze some of it for smoothies and use the rest in other recipes. This past week I bought blueberries, forgetting I already had some at home that were well on their way to mushiness. Since my kids love blueberry muffins I thought we could try making them.  These easy blueberry muffins are sure to become one of our family favorite recipes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1/2 stick of butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries

Makes 12 blueberry muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. These are wonderful served with some butter fresh out of the oven! We had some for breakfast and snack and froze the rest.
