Did you know today is National Blueberry Muffin Day? Don’t worry I didn’t either until a couple of weeks ago. I’m just excited for once that I knew ahead of time (I was deeply saddened I missed sugar cookie day) I tend to always find out the NEXT day. Now when I think muffin I think of my Snickerdoodle Muffin, but before I concocted that muffin years ago if someone said the word muffin to me I immediately thought Blueberry.
Krusteaz contacted me and asked if I wanted to give away a box of their Wild Blueberry Muffin mix along with some coupons for their products to one of my readers in honor of National Blueberry Muffin Day. I love and use their cornbread mix all the time but had never tried the blueberry so I thought sure what the heck. And even better you get a chance to try as well.
I was told to do whatever I wanted with the mix (no compensation was given to me except muffin mix and some coupons). I decided to stay with muffin but of course put a little spin on it. I replaced some of the water in the mix with fresh lemon juice. I added some white chocolate chips. I added streusel topping to it because I have a thing for streusel topping. I must say it all came together beautifully. I really love lemon and white chocolate with blueberry. Have no idea why but I do. And if you make these I have a feeling you will to. The bonus is when you eat one you in no way will think gee these came from a box!
So if you would like to have Krusteaz send you a box of your own as well as some coupons just leave a comment telling me what your favorite muffin is? You must live in the USA. You only get one entry. Winner is picked randomly using a number generator. You have until Tuesday, July 15th 2014, 5pm (PST) to leave a comment that counts as an entry.

I love lemon muffins, but any kind of fruit (especially citrus) is fine with me 🙂

Oh, blueberry muffins sound great right now. My kids’ favorite is a spin on a bread: sweet potato with chocolate chips! Sometimes I add carrots to it if I don’t have enough yams. (A vegetable for breakfast too, hahaha!)
Is it lame that my answer is bran muffins??

My fave is defff blueberry… or sometimes banana walnut 🙂 These look amazing… love the crumb topping!
Costco has some fab carrot walnut muffins.
My favorite are apple nut muffins! Just use the bread recipe that I love and turn it into muffins instead.
Banana bread muffins, esp if they have chocolate chips in them.
My favorite are lemon poppyseed with almonds, but blueberry is up there!
It’s a toss-up between blueberry and lemon poppyseed… yum!
Corn muffins with real corn mixed in or raspberry almond muffins !
Yum! My fav muffin is chocolate chip. 🙂
My new favorite muffin is a pistachio one that a grocery store in our new town makes. Very yummy.
I like morning glory muffins! Yum, It makes me thing of fall, that with a cup of coffee
oh my I need to pick 1 kind of muffin. I guess any kind of banana muffins top the list. plain, with nuts, with chocolate chips or banana peanutbutter chocolate chip so yummy. I also love blueberry, pumpkin, apple corn, snicker doodle, lemon and orange. I am sure there are more I have 20 or more recipes at home. they make an easy portable breakfast that even my husband likes.

I make a lot of banana nut muffins here (gotta use up all those bananas) and will often add mini chocolate chips to them. I also love lemon poundcake muffins. Yum. And I have a recipe for a mixed berry cheesecake muffin as well. In the fall, I tend to make pumpkin muffins and will throw in either chocolate chips or white chocolate chips. My son loves blueberry muffins, so I will try these later this week for him.
I made these!!!! They were a big hit at work, though us nurses will eat anything!!! I will add this recipe to list to make again. Thanks.
A muffin isn’t complete without streusel! At the moment I’m hooked on cinnamon chip muffins.
I think strawberry muffins are my favorite but sometimes hard to get good berries so my go to is blueberry 🙂
