Blackberry Muffins

I've been using this recipe to make bluebery muffins for a while now but lately my husband has been on a blackberry kick. With plump, fresh blackberries in my fridge all the time, I just couldn't resist utlizing them in this yummy recipe!

Tips:
  • You may use fresh or frozen and defrosted blackberries.
  • I chose to cut my blackberries in half, but you can leave them whole if you wish.
  • Are you too busy/lazy/tired to make homemade blackberry muffins? Buy a box of blueberry muffin mix and instead of adding the little can of blueberries, add 1/2 cup of fresh blackberries. I won't tell, I promise.

Blackberry Muffins

1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup blackberries

Combine dry ingredients and toss together. Add beaten egg, milk, vanilla and applesauce and stir to combine. Gently fold in blackberries. Fill each cup 2/3 the way up in a greased or lined muffin pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

I actually made these this afternoon, but substituted the blackberries with raspberries as my son had eaten all the blackberries. They turned out really well and I'm going to have to make another batch! I'd love to share the recipe with my blog followers if that's okay with you?
