Blueberry Muffins on a Blue Monday
It’s Monday, and i am a severe case of the blues. And ironically i baked up some BLUEberry muffins this morning. Geez, BLUEberry muffins on a BLUE monday. That’s a negative all right .
But in my defense, these aren’t your average muffins. These are the Baking Bites VERY Blueberry Muffins. We’ve got twice as much of the Blue stuff in there. And since double negative cancels out each other, These are positively a worthy candidate to offset your Monday blues. LOL. Okay, not making much sense here.
So why are they called the very Blueberry Muffins again? Cause they call for fresh blueberries, dried blueberries AND blueberry juice in the recipe.
The blueberry juice kinda gives u a weird murky blue brown colour. But seriously, no one cared. And i havent even gotten to the best part of these muffins. They contain NO butter.
Hold up, did someone say butter?
okays, so now they do contain butter, but it’s just for this one. I promise. The others were left untainted. LOL.
But seriously, these muffins didn’t really need all that butter, or jam. Beside all that wonderful berryworks, these muffins were sprinkled with sugar over their tops before they went into the oven. They tasted very good on their own, and that’s how the others were eaten when i brought them to work to help ease the others’ with their Monday blues.
Just my lil’ contribution to make the world a berry happy place.
