Delicious Brown Sugar Blueberry Muffin Recipe

by | November 17, 2018

This recipe is a simple twist to your run of the mill blueberry muffins. Other recipes usually use granulated sugar, but to add another layer of flavor we substituted with brown sugar. To take it one step further we browned the “butter” as well, giving it a rich deep flavor. These muffins are not overly sweet and they have just the right amount to balance out the tart blueberries. My kids love them topped with melted butter or even drizzled with maple syrup. They are perfectly paired with a cup of joe and easy to make with just 9 ingredients. So preheat your oven, start brewing your coffee, and enjoy these fluffy muffins fireside.
