Made entirely in one bowl. Crunchy sugar crust. A little almond if you’re into it. Absolute heaven.
Blueberry White Chocolate Muffins. Here I go again walking that line between breakfast and dessert. Muffins or cupcakes? What’s the diff? Not much if you come to my house, but these guys are loaded with blueberries. You know what blueberries are? Superfoods. These muffins are basically like drinking a smoothie. Are you with me?
These muffins are miraculously made entirely in one big bowl. Truly. And I’m not even trying to trick you by saying one bowl and then throwing in a butter melting bowl or some other crazy sneaky thing. You can just melt the butter straight in the mixing bowl! One bowl, maybe a spoon or two, and let’s just not talk about cleaning the muffin tin later… BUT! Pro-tip: use muffin papers and you won’t have to clean that either!! More time to focus on making more coffee and eating more muffins.
I honestly believe that berries and white chocolate is one of the world’s greatest flavour combinations right up there with chocolate and peanut butter, buffalo sauce and blue cheese, salt and caramel, any type of cheese with any type of bread… you see what I mean.
These muffins are stupid easy and absolutely delish. Totally worth 30 minutes of your weekend morning.
Blueberry White Chocolate Muffins, the details…
You’ll start by whisking together your wet ingredients including melted butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream and vanilla & almond extracts. Then you’ll whisk in a few of the dry ingredients – salt, baking powder and baking soda – and mix them well so they’re evenly incorporated – this is how we’re miraculously managing to do this whole thing in one bowl. Then you’ll fold in the flour, the berries and the white chocolate. Super easy.
Once you add the muffin batter to the pan you’re going to sprinkle a good amount of coarse sugar on top of each muffin. this will give them a crackly, crunchy crust that takes them right over the top. This step is optional, but also mandatory. 😉
I do recommend using paper liners for these muffins because there are often juicy blueberries that like to seep out and melt themselves to the bottom of the pan which makes your muffin stick and not come out properly, forcing you to eat them straight out of the pan. I know from experience, that they are still delicious this way and I usually eat one or two straight out of the pan anyway, but if you’re trying to impress…
Ingredients and Substitutions
Flour – I use a combination of all purpose and whole wheat pastry flour in this recipe because I find whole wheat pastry flour (I use this locally produced one) an easy to way to up the nutrition of my muffins without noticing a textural difference at all. You can just use all purpose if you like though.
Extracts – I will always sneak a little almond extract in wherever I can, but I do really think it makes anything with blueberries sing. Leave it out if you prefer.
Blueberries – you can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. I don’t thaw frozen berries first when I use them.
Sour Cream -feel free to substitute Greek Yogurt.
