The best muffin recipe! My daughter doesn't like blueberries, so I set some of the batter aside and add chocolate chips to hers.

These are good, like REALLY good. It's the perfect muffin batter, and while I used a combo of wild blackberries (from a berry patch on my property) and store bought blueberries, I cant wait to try this recipe with fresh peaches. I also like that it's made with everyday ingredients that I always have in my pantry. My husband said they were a keeper (he rarely says this) and my two year old gobbled them up. Thanks Paula!

thank you for this recipe, I bought my Mom some blueberries & want to make something with them; they sure aren’t sweet.

Paula’s ears must ring all the time. I am always taken her great recipes and making them “better” with Splenor, Eggbeaters, applesauce in place of the sugar, eggs and oils.  They come out great as a rule but there are some that just don’t work.  Thanks Paula for your great help in the kitchen.  Love your shows and cookbooks and food.

I was so excited to see a muffin recipe, since the berries down here are all in season and delicious!  I didn’t have blueberries on hand, so I subbed with strawberries, and I just about ate the entire batch, they were amazing!  Thank you for such a simple and delish recipe!

By Jessica K on June 08, 2010

I haven’t made this receipt yet and really hope I can read it.  I hope I can suggest you have a PRINT button to enlarge the receipt and be able to eliminate the rest of the stuff as this is all I would want.  I do need a magnify glass to read this.  Sorry——
