Mouth-Watering Blueberry Muffins with Sour Cream

Summertime is an absolute favourite to enjoy all those in-season fruits and berries. In fact we have a whole collection of over 20 fresh berry desserts to try.

I actually didn’t enjoy blueberries until adulthood. But now I can’t seem to get enough! Luckily the kids love these nutrient packed little gems.

This recipe for light and fluffy blueberry muffins with sour cream actually works well with any fresh or frozen berries. Made with light sour cream (or low-fat yogurt) they’re actually a lower-calorie alternative to regular muffins. 

TIP: To keep your blueberries from sinking to the bottom of your muffins (as they did in ours!) try lightly coating them in flour before adding them to the batter.

We truly think is the best bluemerry muffin recipe – they come of moist and soft without heaviness. They’re perfect with a morning cup of copy or milk!

Very good taste, texture was not the typical crumbly texture of a muffin.
