The Best Blueberry Muffins

I love these muffins! I even made a double batch for Hubby to take to work for his employees for breakfast. The pancake mix makes them really fluffy.

                                                  The Ingredients
                         And of course the blue berries, I used frozen ones

The Best Blueberry Muffins


    * 3/4 cup milk
    * 1/2 cup vegetable oil- I substitute unsweetened apple sauce
    * 1 egg
    * 1 cup flour
    * 1 cup of your favorite pancake mix
    * 1/3- 1/2 cup white sugar
    * 3 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1 cup of blueberries
    * muffin pan for 12 muffins
    * small sized muffin papers

1. Turn on the oven and preheat to 400 degrees so it will be ready when you are done preparing the muffins. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the milk, oil, and egg. Whisk these together with a fork until it is evenly mixed.

2. Add the flour, pancake mix, 1/3- 1/2 cup sugar, (depending on how sweet you would like the muffins) and baking powder. Stir with fork until evenly mixed. Don't stir too much, this will cause the muffins to be tough.

3. If the blueberries you are using are larger than normal, get out a cutting board and knife and chop them in half. Add the one cup of blueberries to the batter and mix gently so as not to break the blueberries.

4. Place one muffin paper in each indentation in the muffin pan. Spoon the batter into the papers so that each muffin is about the same size and has approximately the same amount of blueberries. Put the muffins in the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

5. Turn off the oven. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Remove muffins from pan. Once cool, store

And somehow I forgot to take a picture after they were done! They are all gone now but man were they good!

If you ever want to cheat and use a box mix...the FiberOne blueberry muffins are pretty good (and healthy). :-)
