Myas Muffins & My most recent work of Pearls

Well Mya & I make Blueberry muffins from time to time. We have been close to perfecting a recipe when she said "Let's add Chocolate Chips". I didn't think it sounded right, but we tried it and they are yummy... So here it is!

Myas Muffins: Blueberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Preheat oven to 400

Beat until smooth:
1 Cup milk - WARM it a few seconds in the micro (just to get to room temp) so it doesn’t make the butter lump up
½ Cup softened butter
½ Cup Canola or Smart Balance Oil
½ Cup Egg White beaters (or 2 eggs)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla

Add these ingredients on top of mixture, but don’t mix them in yet:

4 Cups flour
You can use all purpose, OR here’s what we do to really add some grains & depth of texture/flavors):  1 Cup all purpose, 1 ½ Cup Whole Wheat, 1 ½ Cup Oat Flour (if you don’t have any, toss some oats in the food processor for a while)

1 Cup Granulated sugar
1 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Brown sugar
4 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Pinch of Nutmeg

Optional, but we like to throw in ½ Cup Flax Seed Meal

Now gently mix the dry ingredients together (this is to get them integrated with each other evenly without having to do it in a separate bowl – save dirty dishes!)

Once dry is mixed, fold the dry mix with the moist batter below just enough to start to integrate the dry with the wet. DON’T Over mix.

Add Blueberries & Chocolate Chips – don’t be shy : ) We normally do about 2 Cups BB & 1 Cup CC (but Mya may add more when I am not looking : )

Fold together
Put in muffin tins

Bake 15-25 min (length depends on size S/M/L) Until toothpick comes out clean.

Also, here is my most recent Pearl designs, which I made my sale of the day today! 


  1. The pearl design is very pretty!

    And the blueberry muffin recipe is very timely. My husband loves blueberries! And the season is almost upon us. The chocolate chips of course will be for me. LOL Thanks so much for the recipe.

  2. Enjoy! Honestly they'd be good w or w/out chocolate chips (this coming from a chocoholic!)
