Red, White, and Blue Muffins

20120704-DSC03086

I know that this recipe is a little late for the 4th of July, but these would be fantastic for any time when berries are in season. Who doesn’t love diving into a fresh berry muffin in the morning?

The red comes from fresh raspberries, the blue from blueberries, and the white from white chocolate chips. They are flavorful and soft and full of summer flavor.

Let me show you the easy recipe! No mixer or fancy ingredients required!

 

Red, White, and Blue Muffins

Ingredients (20 standard muffins)

  • 3 1/2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. full fat greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 c. coconut oil
  • 1/2 c. canola oil
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 t. lemon extract
  • 1 c. fresh blueberries
  • 1 c. fresh raspberries
  • 1 c. white chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda with a spoon or spatula.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, oils, milk, eggs, and extracts.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients with a spatula and pour the wet ingredients into the well. Fold the ingredients together just until combined with a spatula.

Rinse and dry the blueberries and raspberries well. Gently toss them in a few tablespoons of flour until well coated.

Fold the berries into the batter (gently! they’re prone to bleeding and breaking apart) along with the chocolate chips.

Grease 2 standard muffin tins with baking spray then insert cupcake liners into 20 of the cups. Scoop the batter in to fill each cup (I use an ice cream scooper for this). Sprinkle with turbinado sugar for garnish if desired.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins are completely golden brown.

Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing them to cool completely on a rack.

I was surprised at how well the blueberry and raspberry flavors came together in these muffins! Ashley has eaten three since I made them yesterday afternoon, which is really saying somethin’. The fresh berries are an amazing treat to find inside, and the white chocolate just puts them over the top.

And while these muffins are full of delicious fruit, they’re not low on the calories. Which means you’ll need some fun exercise to balance it all out. Head over to my post from a few days ago to get 15 free days of the online mybarre3 workout program! :)

Thanks for reading!
