Recipe: Saskatoon Berry Muffins

saskatoon berry muffins

The cookbook is in the hands of the editor!!! Yay! I’m so thrilled with it and really happy with how it’s all coming together! But more on that soon. We have had such a beautiful summer. We have picnicked to our hearts content, had many amazing super fresh super easy meals, and eaten plenty of gritty, dirt still on them carrots from the Farmers Market. Love love LOVE summer.

Here’s a healthy and easy muffin recipe the little girls and I whipped up this morning. Enjoy!

muffin batter

Saskatoon Berry Muffins

2 cups spelt flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 brick of cream cheese

1/2 c brown sugar

1/2 cup agave nectar

1 egg

1 cup plain greek yogurt

1 cup saskatoon berries

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tin with paper(12 large and 12 mini or 18 large). Whisk together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add agave nectar. Scrape down bowl. Add egg and beat until smooth. Stir in yogurt. Stir in dry ingredients until not quite combined. Add berries and stir until barely combined. Scoop into muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes at 450. Reduce heat to 400 and bake for 5 mins more. Muffins will be golden on top. Serve warm.

    I am loving the looks of these muffins…we just picked some organic blueberries in BC and I’m anxious to bake with them!

    Are those silicone muffin ‘papers’? If so, do you like them?
    The muffins look great too-that’s a very unique recipe.

    Hey Alison – do you mind telling me what brand your cups are so I can try them? I bought a set a couple of years ago but every batch I did tasted “plasticky” so I was scared they were leaching. Thanks. SO excited for the cookbook!!!!
