  It's blueberry season.

I love fresh blueberries and homemade blueberry muffins are the best, but I don't like refined sugar, so I thought I would search out some recipes made with honey. 

I found these recipes on cooks.com 

This first one seems fairly basic and would be great for an early morning summer breakfast.
2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 c. milk
4 tbsp. honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. blueberries
1/4 c. melted shortening
Sift flour with salt and baking powder. Combine milk, honey, egg, blueberries and shortening. Add to dry ingredients, stirring quickly just long enough to moisten dry ingredients. Fill greased muffin pans half full. Bake in 400 degree oven for 35 minutes or until browned. Yield: 12 muffins.

If you're like me and prefer whole wheat flour, you might want to try this one. 

1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. honey
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. blueberries
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin tin and muffin cups. Beat egg; stir in milk and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients except blueberries just until flour is moistened. Batter should be lumpy. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 muffins.

I think I might try them both.



  1. I've just made some with a gluten free flour from Bob's Red Mill. Yum!!

  2. Oh, do tell how they turn out. We are planting blueberry bushes next year. YUM!

  3. seriously yum. I make buttermilk and lemon version, they are amazing!
