Yummy Berry Muffins Recipe

16

I love having filling, delicious muffins on hand for simple snacks and breakfasts. This is an easy recipe that packs a punch of protein and whole grains. It’s also a great way to use any berries you might have scooped up at the farmer’s market or have grown in your yard this summer.

Until a few months ago, I had no experience growing fruit. So imagine my surprise when I was attempting to weed an overgrown section of our woodsy backyard and noticed a bush with dark red berries on it. With further poking around, I found an entire section of our yard was overflowing with those thorny, overgrown berry plants. Were they edible? With a little Googling and plenty of prickly scratches, I identified them as wild black raspberry bushes. Score!

My kids and I quickly started experimenting with them in the kitchen and added them to my much-loved muffin recipe. But if you don’t have fruit growing in your backyard, don’t worry– these muffins will work just as well with the frozen kind.

Oops. Looks like a raspberry leaf made its way into the mix. Oh well!

5. Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  1. We had a summer home in Pennsylvania and there were tons of wild blueberries growing all around. My mother made blueberry pancakes, waffles and muffins all the time and they were delicious!

  2. Cooking/baking eluded me for so long. I kind of thought it “was not for me” and that I had to be fancier. See how much joy you have sharing a simple recipe with your daughter is making me want to try all of the things.

  3. These definitely look delicious and it looks as if a lot of love went into the making of them :) . Will save this recipe to make with my boys .

  4. Adding yogurt to the muffins it’s a great idea! And how lucky you are to have your own bush of “surprise berries”! I wish I could grow something but plants just die with me!

  5. This is the perfect recipe to have children help follow along with. I love blueberry muffins, they are great for breakfast and even a snack any time of day.

  6. Great find! I love black raspberries, I’m currently dividing mine up as I clip then back for winter so I have enough to fill in the fence row. My little helpers tend to eat all the berries I pick before I get to make anything with them!

  7. My kids love Starbucks. But by the time I buy them a muffin or something to drink, the energy has drained out of me. So much better for their health and my wallet to make treats at home like these yummy berry muffins.

    • Thank you, Ashley! Yes, I get in major trouble if I cook without my little helper– it’s her favorite thing to do! I really think she might grow up to become a chef or baker.
      Hope you enjoy the recipe if you give it a try!

      Best,
      Julia
