Got blueberries? Then you’ll got a great breakfast treat in store. Since I’m building menus based on what I’ve already got in the freezer or cupboard, I decided that a little berrymaking was in order. I have a huge bag of frozen berries from Costco ready to be put to good work.

We’ve made smoothies several times this summer and now these are going to be a repeat attraction, thanks to the baking mix I whipped up the other morning. I prefer to make my own baking mixes rather than buying them from the store. I’m practically bereft without a few bags of pancake, muffin, waffle, or cornbread mix on hand.

The nutmeg adds a little spicy warmth without overpowering the blueberries. These muffins mix up quickly and freeze beautifully after baking. So, go make a batch — or two.

    yum, just took them out of the oven! I wanted to make blueberry muffins, your timing was perfect!

  2. Dawn says

    PERFECT timing. I just went blueberry picking and need some good recipes for my scrumptious blue gems.

    Maybe just for reference, but I checked them at 20 minutes and they were already done, overdone, in fact. My oven tends to cook faster (gas), so next time I will check them at 17-18 minutes.

    • Interesting. Did you use frozen or fresh blueberries?

      • Mindy says

        I used frozen blueberries. I did let the buttermilk (milk/lemon juice) & eggs sit out on the counter for 30 minutes before using them.

    I really wanted something with blueberry but was out of yogurt to do the regular muffins and no lemons in sight. So, I made up a double batch of these for muffins and bread. I am not a HUGE nutmeg fan so I was a bit scared and cut it in half–and added 1/2 tsp. vanilla. The nutmeg had a nice flavor, especially since I used farmer’s market berries which were huge—which meant not as many to a cup. Where there were no berries, the flavor was still there due to the nutmeg.
