Fun fact – I love blueberries but I have never liked them in things.  Not in my waffles, in my pancakes, or in my muffins.  Until now.  Neil and I went blueberry picking in North Georgia (one of my fave things to do – anyone else or am I weird??) and we has SO many blueberries leftover.  I knew I had to make fun things with them.  First up was my honey lime summer salad with mint – oh my gosh SO fresh and perfect for a summer bbq.  Then I went a completely different route and decided to try my hand at homemade blueberry poptarts – WOW was that one of the best ideas ever.  Then Neil asked me to make some muffins.  Knowing my blueberries were going to go bad (we were out of room to freeze any more) I begrudgingly obliged.  Then after I tried one I think I ate the whole batch before Neil could even get one! Oops.  No regrets though because these muffins are so moist and fluffy and flavorful and delicious.

Let’s Make Some Nut Butter Blueberry Muffins!

Alright I explained this in my banana nut muffin recipe – but here it is again – the main secret to the perfect muffin. Do not over stir.  I repeat – do. not. over. stir.  When you do this to your muffin batter it makes your muffins overly dense.  We don’t want that.  We want a light fluffy muffin!  So just stir gently and stop once all of the ingredients seem combined.  Sound good?

Next up, flours.  I used gluten free all purpose flour and almond flour in here.  If you don’t have almond flour, feel free to just use all purpose for all of it.  If you are not gluten free, you can swap either or both out for whole wheat flour.  And you’d be fine with oat flour as well.  But as is my general rule, don’t swap either for coconut flour.  Unless a recipe specifically calls for coconut flour, I don’t usually recommend trying it.  Coconut flour is its own beast and bakes in its very unique way.  So try to stick to the recs I mentioned.  You can check out my Amazon shop to see the brands and ingredients I recommend. 

I think that is about all I have to warn you about!  If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment below or reach out on Instagram.
