Each bite of these blueberry cupcakes brings you another burst of flavor. Sure, there are the juicy blueberries that pop in your mouth, but there are also oats from your favorite granola, dark chocolate chunks, and a hint of maple in the cake itself. Frost the cupcakes with a simple fresh whipped cream (recipe below) or your favorite buttercream recipe. Blueberry muffins will never again seem good enough.
Yield: 12 cupcakes
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
½ cup sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
¼ cup apple butter
½ cup milk
6 oz blueberries
1 cup granola (any variety)
1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs and sugar until light and creamy.
Mix in the maple syrup, butter, and apple butter.
Mix in the dry ingredients until just integrated.
Mix in the milk until smooth.
Fold in the blueberries, granola, and chocolate chunks.
Divide batter evenly between twelve cupcake liners.
Bake for twenty-five minutes or until the tops bounce back when lightly touched.
Whipped Cream Frosting Ingredients
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
Blueberries for garnish (optional)

Whip heavy whipping cream and sugar until light and fluffy.
Optionally decorate with a fresh blueberry.

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
