Homemade Goodness: The Best Blueberry Muffins

We are getting ready for our annual blueberry picking weekend! So of course I have been hard at work coming up with some great recipes to share with everyone. I have to be honest, while I have devoted a whole weekend around them, I have not been a huge fan of blueberries in the past. But after playing around in the kitchen I have truly learned to love them! This was one of the first recipes that made me a believer! I hope that you enjoy! Plus Share your favorite blueberry recipe with me, I will have a ton to work with soon!

The Best Blueberry Muffins

This makes 12 standard muffins
Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour cream
1 cup small blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl beat eggs and gradually add sugar while beating. Continue beating while slowly pouring in oil. Stir in vanilia.

In a separate bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda.

Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture alternately with the sour cream.

Gradually fold in blueberries (use small berries for more even distribution)

Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. (fill all of the way to the top to get the nice dome on top)

Bake in preheated oven for 20 mins. Muffins are ready when you can stick the center of the muffin with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

ENJOY!! Also look out for my blueberry weekend printables coming soon!!

Money Money Money! Free Printable!


Yanna loves playing games like restaurant and shop where she will sell you something from her toy box. We decided to start teaching her about money and put out the money from her piggy bank. When we were done counting it both she and I had black fingers. Kinda gross. So I decided to leave the real money in the piggy bank and for real shopping and create this printable for her instead.

We have had a bunch of fun with it. When I decided to offer this on the blog as a free printable, I was thinking about all of the different things you can do with this. From math, to playing shop, or even as reward money. Pay them with this when they do something deserving of a reward that they can then cash in for something. Like going out for ice cream or maybe a toy? Plus the great thing is, if your kids lose or destroy the money, you can always print more! Got to love printables! Yanna had a great time gluing a number of hers all over her artwork!
Download your free printable here today and check out some of the other free printables!
