Triple Berry Muffins
Delicious homemade muffins featuring blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Natural ingredients add flavor and color. Easy to make and better than a box mix! Makes 12 standard or 6 jumbo muffins. Vegetarian.
Servings 12 muffins
- 1 c strawberries, chopped
- ¾ c blueberries
- ¾ c blackberries
- ¾ c sugar
- ½ c milk
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- ⅓ c vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c AP flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp freeze dried blueberries, crushed optional
- 2 tbsp freeze dried strawberries, crushed optional
Preheat Oven to 375°F and line a 12 count muffin tray.
Mash half of the strawberries into a large bowl (to be mixed into the batter). Combine remaining 1/2 c strawberries with all blueberries and blackberries in a separate medium bowl.
Toss the triple berry mixture with a little of the flour. Set aside.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together remaining flour, crushed dried berries (if using), baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Make the Muffins:
In the large bowl with the mashed strawberries, add in sugar, milk, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
Stir the flour mixture into the batter until just combined.
Gently fold the triple berry mixture into the batter.
Scoop batter into lined muffins trays to nearly fill. Top with decorator's sugar and/or extra berries, if desired.
Bake on 375°F for 23-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, edges are lightly browned and tops spring back when pressed. For jumbo/oversized muffins, add 2-3 minutes to bake time.
Let rest in muffin tray for 5 minutes then remove to cooling rack. Store leftover muffins in an airtight container for up to 3 days. May be frozen for up to 1 month.
For vegan adaptations:
Substitute 1 mashed banana for the 2 eggs. Use oat milk or almond milk for regular milk.
- Freeze dried berries can often be found in the granola/nut aisle
- Freeze dried berries add extra flavor without adding weight. These muffins can still be made and are still delicious with only the fresh fruit, though!
