So, I’m moving. So many feels. Another post on that to come soon, but because half of my pots and pans are in boxes, it’s been a bit lame in the cooking/baking department over here. Except for these muffins. There’s always time to make muffins. Amiright?
Anyways, the muffins- they are bursting with juicy blueberries and they have greek yogurt in them, which makes the super moist. Sorry, but the M word had to be used because there is no other way to describe the glory that is this blueberry muffin.
They have vanilla bean greek yogurt, honey, olive oil and TONS of blueberries. They come together super quick and I bet you have almost all of these ingredients in your cabinets already. These are great for a weekend morning OR for quick-running-out-the-door, stuffing-your-face-on-the-subway kinda day too. Either way, they rule and you should make ’em asap. Also, I give us all permission to not feel badly about eating these nutrient packed treats. I mean greek yogurt, blueberries and olive oil- we can basically call these a health food.
Am I the only one who freaks when berries are on sale at the grocery store? Like sneakily looks around the produce section as though they mislabeled the price and now you are getting ALL OF THE BERRIES, jokes on them. “PULL THE CAR AROUND, BERRIES ARE BUY ONE GET ONE.” I mean, regularly they are about 4-6 bucks a pint which to me is, ludicrous (heeeeeyyy yahhhh.) So when they are on sale, I stock up. Which means, lots of blueberry recipes coming this way. Jams, pies, cookies, cakes! The opportunities are endless. Also, #antioxidants.
