Best Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Best Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Written by Becky

On my quest for several “best” recipes, I have also been seeking out a Blueberry Muffin Recipe that stands out among the rest. Previous best recipe searches have uncovered my Best Granola Recipe, Best Bran Muffin Recipe, and Best Vegan Cookie Recipe. I figure that if I’m blogging a traditional recipe such as this one, it should be my very favorite, right?

Well I can honestly tell you that these are the best Blueberry Muffins that you’ll ever sink your teeth into. After first tasting them at Communal in Provo, the chef graciously sent me his recipe and I’ve been enjoying them often. Basically, anytime I can come up with an excuse to make them I do. Friends visiting from out of town- bluebery muffins, birthday breakfast for a friend- blueberry muffins, baby shower brunch- blueberry muffins, oh wait is it snowing again today- blueberry muffins. You get the idea. They are that good!

This weekend we are expecting more snow, which means, maybe I’ll be making another batch. I might even try altering the recipe a bit for poppy seed muffins, we’ll see.

Thanks to Joey, the chef at Communal for unlocking the secret to one of my favorite breakfast treats.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • Cream together butter, sugar, and salt. Add eggs, vanilla, and milk. Add dry ingredients. Stir in blueberries.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-28 min (depending on weather you're making 8 or 12 muffins).

Weekend Credits
One of my tasks this weekend is to organize our big bookshelf. After searching online for book shelf decor ideas, I found this fun video on Unclutter.
Love this wooden clock on etsy. Daydreaming about how perfect it would look in our breakfast nook at home.

  1. Just happened upon your blog from a tweet and I'm in love! Communal, cute dogs, recipes, vintage things! You'll definitely be seeing a lot more of me.

  2. Communal breakfast is amazing, and these were one of my favorites too!

    How seriously generous that they gave you the recipe. I know I'll never make it as amazing as they do, but I can try! And hey, I live in Provo so you know I can always drop by for some.

    Lovely pictures.

  3. uber-amazing! 🙂 and I am snitching the recipe! You made my Queen Bee Picks of the Week on Beehive Blog! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I have been on the hunt for a blueberry muffin recipe and it seems it fell right into my computer screen! Thank you so so so much! Everyone thinks I'm nuts for wanting them for my birthday but hey, you can never beat blueberry muffins!!!! I can't wait to try them out.

  5. Very nice blueberry muffins. I am partial to frozen blueberries when baking they seem to hold up a bit better than fresh.

  6. I am so excited! I just found your blog and I LOVE it. It seems we have similar tastes/interests so I'm excited to look around more. These muffins look wonderful. I'm headed to Communal in a few days for my first time and I can't wait. Maybe I'll whip up a batch of these this weekend in honor. 🙂
