Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

What do you do with leftover blueberries that MUST be used!?  Bake muffins of course!

I have made blueberry muffins before, Blueberry Quinoa Muffins, that are very similar to these new ones, except this newer version uses almond, oat, and fine cornmeal instead of grits and quinoa and it is oil free for those trying to stay away from oils.  Also, because this newer muffin doesn’t include quinoa, cooking the quinoa is one less step to making these delicious muffins (meaning you get to eat them sooner!)  But the best part of this newest muffin is that they tasted SO good!

Everyone in my family loved them that they were gone in no time!  Now I have to go buy more blueberries just so I can remake these muffins!

  • Optional: 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce

The cornmeal makes these muffins similar to cornbread, but the blueberries pair really well with it giving these muffins the perfect sweet taste!
