Dark Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

by Erin

Fresh blueberries, a double dose of dark chocolate, and hidden whole wheat flour means you can have two of these dark chocolate blueberry muffins, right?

Over the weekend, Brent and I went to a friend’s lake house in Pickwick. I was asked to bring a dessert, or a dip, or something for Breakfast. But I brought all three (multichip cookies, jalapeno-cheddar hummus, and these muffins obviously). Lesson learned – don’t give me options because I will find great recipes for each and end up not being able to pick just one. Of course there were no complaints of excess food. You are welcome :-).

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

As I mentioned, for Breakfast I made these muffins which are adapted from a recipe by Jessica at How Sweet It Is. The things she posts constantly are added to my bookmarked list, so I was really excited to get these into the oven. For some reason I was surprised by how quickly they came together. But I was not surprised in the slightest by how good they were. And then I had two for Breakfast.

I bet chocolate would be a good addition to my sourdough blueberry muffins too.

On my blueberry kick this year I haven’t thought to pair them with chocolate. I get a duh for that! These look yummy!

Thanks! I can’t take credit for the idea though, they are from How Sweet It Is.

I saw those on her site the other day. They looked a little odd, but seemed like they should be good. Chocolate is good. Blueberries are good. Why not put them together? Glad you liked them!

Yes I would’ve never put the two together myself, but if she made it it has to be good haha
