HEALTHY BLUEBERRY MUFFIN TIPS
- You can make these muffins with fresh or frozen blueberries.
Do not defrost frozen blueberries before using; just stir the frozen blueberries into the batter as directed.
- If you are following the Slimming World plan you must Syn the Blueberries.
Cooked fruit contains Syns.. please check with www.slimmingworld.co.uk for more information.
- Allow the muffins to cool before as they taste better
Even better if you can let them rest for a couple of hours at room temperature before serving.
ARE THESE MUFFINS SUITABLE FOR STORING?
Absolutely, in fact I would recommend making a double batch and freezing one of them.
Allow to cool first. Then place in a suitable container. Store in a cool dry place for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature.
Get yourself a really good non stick 12 hole muffin tin. This way there is no need need for muffin cases. I love this Magic Salt tray. I don’t ever have to grease it, thanks to the non stick coating. Clean up is easy too. I’ve never had to soak or scrub this pan.
