A nice tea time treat or great portable snack.

I have reduced the sugar quite drastically as they are naturally sweet from the blueberries.

  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or golden brown and firm to the touch.


I use an ice cream scoop to portion out the mix.
I use silicone muffin tins but if using normal muffin tins line with paper muffin cases.
You can use frozen blueberries, just defrost first.
Delicious eaten slightly warm or leave to cool completely. They freeze well and will keep in an airtight container for several days.
