These were soooo goood!!

My daughter has been asking me to make blueberry muffins for days. I’m not sure what got into her, but the muffins had to be blueberry. Not chocolate. Not apple. Not anything but blueberry.

Of course, being the sneaky mom that I am, I opted to make flax seed blueberry muffins that also had white chia seeds in them. I also used some whole wheat flour in the mix, and you would never. even. know it. These were delicious, and I will definitely be making these again sometime soon!

I also recently made apple muffins with sprouted whole wheat – they were also very good, but I didn’t fill the liners enough and so they came out sort of flatish. What I’ve learned so far about muffins is that they don’t rise nearly as much as cupcakes do, yet they are tender and moist.

Try these out for breakfast or a mid-day snack, before bed snack, or anytime really!

  1. I’m thinking of making these for my daughter’s birthday party this weekend. Are they a crowd pleaser for adults and kids, even those that might not be so “healthy”? Also, have you ever made them in mini muffin tins, and frozen them? Curious how they defrost as I’m hosting 70 people at the party and want to make a bite size option in advance. Thanks!

    1. Hi Amy – I think the crowd would like them, yes! Sorry I have never frozen them or made mini versions. I would assume that smaller ones would bake quicker, so I’d advice you to monitor the time carefully probably starting at the 12 minute mark and bake until the turn golden brown. I don’t see a problem with freezing them but I’d probably look up how best to freeze muffins (wrapping)
