A few days ago, the blueberry farm down the street from us finally opened! Yay! We’ve been waiting…oh so patiently waiting  for it to open. I don’t know why, but I find picking berries so fun and lucky for me I have a berry picking partner in my youngest daughter. She ended up picking the majority of the berries and we quickly filled up the bottom of her bucket, paid the $5 for the pint of berries, and rushed home to make some chocolate blueberry muffins.

My youngest daughter and myself picking blueberries & visiting the pigs on the farm.

I really wanted to try something a little different, so I picked out this Chocolate Blueberry Muffin recipe from “best-ever COOKIE BOOK” and adapted it slightly. The recipe gives the option of drizzling chocolate on the tops of the muffins and while my kids liked it, my husband preferred to have his plain. I have to agree with him. To me, this tasted better with just a pat of butter and served warm. YUM-O!

Chocolate Blueberry muffins recipe.

Ingredients

Muffin

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (can substitute 1 cup milk + 1 Tablespoon vinegar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup heaping cup fresh blueberries

Topping - Optional

  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line muffin pans with standard paper liners or grease pan.
  2. Melted Chocolate & Sugar In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate until smooth over medium heat. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  3. Blueberries in the pot Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Gently fold in flour and baking soda just until blended. It will be a little lumpy, but go ahead and fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into the muffin liners, filling it 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Chocolate Blueberry Muffins Remove the muffins from the pan and cool on a wire rack.


Topping - Optional

Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave just until it melts. Stir. Drizzle onto the tops of the muffins. I used a pastry bag.

    1. Well, it’s kind of expensive to pick on the farm too, but I just like being able to do something with the kids that’s fun and something they’ll remember when they’re all grown up. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Erlene, I love picking berries!!! My family always picked blackberries when the season opened. My mom would make the BEST blackberry crumble. You have to be dedicated to pick those berries because of the thorns (and of course the best berries are usually buried deep within a ton of thorns), but a few scratches were worth it for the dessert!

    Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings : )
