Blueberry honey muffins for national blueberry day

Celebrate National Blueberry Month with our Honey Blueberry Muffins.

These muffins are made with Eastern Shore Honey and are packed with sweet, locally-grown blueberries. These are not my grandmother’s blueberry muffins… I am sure you know them, the muffins that sort of fall apart as you try to eat them. Unlike some older muffin recipes, these are very moist thanks to using honey in place of processed sugar.

These muffins bake up golden-brown and delicious when done just right. As oven temperatures vary, be sure to check in on the muffins while they’re baking in the oven. Otherwise, they may overcook and get too brown. To make these muffins really special, we sprinkled them with honey crystals after they came out of the oven. You can use granulated sugar, or sugar in the raw crystals if you don’t have honey crystals on hand.

Select your favorite Eastern Shore Honey for this recipe. Our Blueberry Blossom Honey is a great contender. Feel free to experiment with other varieties like Clover or Spring, that have a more mild flavor, to see what suits you best. Serve them with honey butter (see below for the recipe) for an extra-special treat.

These Honey Blueberry Muffins are fun and easy to make!
