Blueberry Walnut Muffins

It is finally starting to feel like Summer to me. :-D

Since I last posted I ran a 5K with my little brother. I went swimming. I went to the beach with my family. It’s been above 90 degrees outside all weekend. We had a BBQ. I ate mass quantities of Cilantro Lime Guacamole at the BBQ. Oh, and I bought a few pints of blueberries at the Farmer’s Market and baked muffins with them!

Isn’t it, like, the unofficial beginning of Summer when fresh berries hit the stands at the Farmer’s Market?!

For me it is. And these muffins might just become my little way of celebrating it! They are sweet, tender, and bursting with juicy blueberries. If that isn’t the best way to celebrate Summer, then I don’t know what is.

Blueberry Walnut Muffins

“Warm blueberry muffins sprinkled with crunchy walnuts. It’s the perfect way to use up fresh Summer berries!”

Printable Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons honey (You could also use agave, brown rice syrup, or maple syrup.)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup blueberries (I roughly chopped mine before adding them to the batter.)
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • Cinnamon sugar for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin pan with butter or line with paper liners, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and add the blueberries and half of the walnuts. Fold to incorporate throughly.
  5. Fill each section in the muffin pan and sprinkle with remaining walnuts and cinnamon sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each muffin comes out clean.

Yield:  12-14 regular-sized muffins

For what was supposed to be an experiment, I cannot believe how good these came out! They actually taste like…Summer! Don’t ask me how. They just do.

So, what are you waiting for? Get out of your seat and make these muffins already! Summer is here! :-P
