Blueberry Mini Muffins

As I write this post, I’m on my way to Rehoboth Beach for the week! So far, I’ve found two ways to entertain myself in the car:

1. Taking ridiculous car selfies. And also snapping pictures of my younger sister who is sleeping. Blackmail for later.

(Older sisters are evil.)

Blueberry Mini Muffin Recipe... impossible to eat just one! https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2014/07/07/blueberry-mini-muffins/

2. Eating homemade blueberry mini muffins, made specifically for the trip.

I adapted the recipe from my Healthy Blueberry Muffins and Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Mini Muffins and was was quite heavy-handed with the blueberries, so each mini muffin is jam-packed (no pun intended) with blueberry flavor. These pictures were also taken with my iphone, proving you certainly can still write a food blog even if you don’t want to spend the money for a fancy camera.

Blueberry Mini Muffins... {impossible to eat just one!} https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2014/07/07/blueberry-mini-muffins/

Blueberry Mini Muffins

(makes 20-22)

  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (120g)
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (10g)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (4g)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable or melted coconut oil (15g)
  • 1 cup spelt, all-purpose, or Bob’s gf flour (120g)
  • If using Bob’s flour, add 1/4 tsp xanthan or guar gum
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • just over 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar of choice or xylitol (50g)
  • pinch stevia, or 1 additional tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen and thawed (125g)

Blueberry Mini Muffins Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F and line a mini muffin tin. Whisk together the first four ingredients, and let sit at least 10 minutes. In a separate mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients but the blueberries and stir very well. Pour wet into dry, and stir until just combined. Then add the blueberries and stir just once, very lightly so as not to break the berries and turn the batter purple. Scoop into the muffin liners, making sure you get at least 2 blueberries in each. Bake 10-12 minutes (my gluten-free trial took 12), or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. (All recipes on this site should be baked in the middle rack unless otherwise noted.) Take out and let sit at least 20 minutes—the blueberry mini muffins will firm up during this time so that they will not stick when the liners are peeled away. Leftover muffins should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.

Questions of the Day:

Do you enjoy the beach? 

Are you one of those people who can sit out all day, falling asleep in the sunshine or reading a book under an umbrella? Or do you prefer to be more active, jumping in the waves or shopping in town? My favorite time at the beach is early in the morning when no one else is around and the only sound is that of the crashing waves. I’ll go for a walk or run right at the water’s edge, watching the sun slowly rise above the water.

    I am totally a beach person!!! My favorite vacation is going to Destin, Florida and I’ve already been this year. I enjoy laying around on the beach, but it’s also fun to cool off in the water. Your mini muffins look wonderful… what a great road trip snack and spelt flour is my favorite to use for muffin baking. Safe travels and have a blast!!

  2. Medha @ Whisk & Shout says

    I’m going to be at Rehoboth this week, too! I’m leaving Tuesday and getting back Friday 🙂 These look delicious and great to bring on the road. I freeze EVERYTHING nowadays, so glad to know these can sit in the freezer for a little 🙂

  3. Jules @ WolfItDown says

    Mmm just the way cupcakes should be, with berry overload!

    I hope you have an amazing time at the beach Katie, I could only dream about that here today as I sit in the office. The cupcakes on the other hand, would be a little easier to get my paws on ^ ^ Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Leah says

    These look great! Does it matter if the milk/cider/vanilla/oil mixture sits at room temp or can it be put into the fridge?

  5. AnnaBananaBelle says

    I love the beach! I prefer to go in the ocean and swim than lie on the beach. I totally agree about early in the morning though! best time to be on the beach. or later at night. btw, these muffins look so great!

  6. Debbie says

    While you are in Rehoboth you have to go to Nicola Pizza for their famous Nicobolis. I just ordered a case of them for my husband’s birthday. Shipping them is really expensive, but totally worth it! Have a great time at the beach! Thanks for all of the amazing recipes!

  7. Jessica says

    Ha, despite having worked as a photographer and owning a DSLR, I think my iPhone takes better pictures!

    I’m a complete beach bum…but I’m also a scuba diver and live in Florida so it’s never a problem for me 🙂

  8. Ellen says

    Ah, mini- muffins, so easy to eat the whole batch;)
    I love playing in the surf, but I’m so pale I avoid lying out in the sun…

  9. EVA says

    I know you have a cookbook to write, but this hardly seems like a recipe. You just re-published your other muffin recipe but swapped the chips for blueberries. I keep coming back here to find a new and innovative recipe, but every time it’s just a rerun or a holiday recipe roundup. I know these are free and I shouldn’t be whining, but I guess I’ll just wait for the cookbook instead of anticipating new recipes.

    • Sara says

      I was curious about your comment so went and clicked the link to see for myself. Looks like you owe someone an apology. I’d recommend actually reading the recipes next time to compare before embarrassing yourself, Eva.

      • EVA says

        But I’m not embarassed….

        And I’m not here to hate. I was just simply stating my feelings. If you have a problem with others’ feelings, then don’t read the comments. Not everyone has Sara’s state of mind. Yeesh.

        • Sara says

          Not embarrassed that you assumed something and made an accusation without taking the time to actually read the recipes? Have you still not even read the other recipe yet? They are nothing alike! Yeesh!

    • Emily says

      Also, what other muffin recipe are you talking about? I hope I’m not seen as rude or one of the people in “Katie’s army” but I am truly curious about which recipe you are basing your claims on.

      • EVA says

        The chocolate chip banana mini muffins she mentions in the beginning of the post. And no way, you definitely came at me very nicely! Do not fret. I make Katie’s recipes at leasr three times a week, so I guess I’m in the “army” too haha

        • Anne says

          Eva:
          I’m not trying to be rude but I would like to understand. If you admit you didn’t read the other recipe, then why did you complain the two were the same? Even if that were true how could you even know that without having read both? Not trying to be “Katie’s Army” but I have to agree with Sara that your comment was out of line.

          • Emily says

            It’s not an official term or anything… but sometimes when I read through the comments and someone says something rude to Katie there’s a lot of people who defend her. Don’t get me wrong, I am very very glad that people stick up for Katie when someone says something nasty and i would defend her too if I weren’t a year and half late. My only problem is that some people get too over-protective of Katie and start making sniping comments back at someone who may have had a very innocent and well-intended question. Case in point: one of the comments on Katie’s sugar cookie oatmeal post. Most of the comments defend Katie and confront the attacker in a very positive way but one of the comments at the end… not so much.

  10. Steph says

    I LOVE the beach and am lucky to live about a 2 minute walk away! My favourite time is also in the morning for a walk with family at the waters wedge 🙂

  11. Elisa @ Green Road to Bliss says

    You look gorgeous! And those mini muffins look like the perfect travel snack.
    Anyway, I love the beach! I grew up in a house that was just a few minutes away from the beach and now that I live in the north of Italy, far away from the sea, I’m really missing it.

    • Kellye says

      Hello 🙂 Which part of Northern Italy do you live? This js totally off topic with the blog..i just saw your comment and my family is from Northern Italy & I have never been..I’ve always wanted to visit there/live there.. Is it as wonderful as I imagine? 🙂

      • Elisa @ Green Road to Bliss says

        I live in Padova, near Venice!
        There are lot of beautiful things here, I really like lakes areas and the alps are so so beautiful, but I don’t like the city that much because everything you can see are… buildings (beautiful buildings, sometimes, but I like natural landscapes more)!

  12. Meghan says

    Katie these muffins look delicious!I will be making these in the near future.I was actually just at rehoboth less than a month ago for a wedding and let me tell you it is beautiful!The boardwalk is so adorable and fun to walk along.My family and I had a great time renting one of those 6 person bikes and just biking around the cute little town.Make sure you are very careful there because they give out tickets very easily and keep a close eye on the parking!

  13. Douglas Lloyd says

    Hi,
    My mother in law lives near Rehoboth Beach. Sounds like you will be doing some sales tax free shopping at the outlets. HAHA. I personally like to go to the beach closer to evening and ride the waves when they are good. I hate the ride home with sandy everything:P

    Blueberry muffins – yum!
    Beach – yay!
    I like to swim, dive, run, and play in the water! No boring sunbathing for me (except for a few minutes perhaps).
    By the way, did you really take the pics with your phone? Wow! They are beautiful. I try to take pictures with my iPad, but they don’t turn out well. 🙁

    • Anne says

      Agree with this! I might even like the blueberry recipes more than the chocolate ones. Please don’t hate me for saying that! Please keep posting blueberry recipes 🙂

  15. Am says

    I love the beach! I love being active – boogie-boarding, craziness, and playing in the waves. My dog loves it, too, when I bring him along, but he gets scared at the coming and going of the waves. I really like your beach shirt! I hope you have a wonderful time at the beach 🙂
    The recipe looks awesome!!!

    • Am says

      I just made them for breakfast! Delicious!
      Changes and Substitutions I made: For the flour I used about 3/4 cup of brown rice flour and equal parts of oatmeal and cornstarch for the other 1/4 cup. I used 1/8 cup of honey instead of sugar. And butter instead of oil.
      I didn’t have a mini muffin pan, so I used a donut pan. It made 6 yummy muffin-donuts! Thank you for the recipe!

  16. Librarian Lavender says

    Have fun at the beach, enjoy your holiday! Those muffins are looking great! I’m living near the beach and am more of a forest person, isn’t that terrible? Fortunately we have dunes with trees which is the best combination, a bit of sea and forest together. I’m not someone who can be lazy on a towel all day, I like to walk around or swim. Enjoy your mornings!
