Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

Ever since I made my Strawberry Rhubarb Zucchini Muffins, I’ve wanted to make Blueberry Zucchini Muffins.

Blueberries are one of my favorite summer fruits.

I have so many summer fruits I absolutely love, I just rank them all as my favorites!

Not only are blueberries delicious, but they’re also full of antioxidants, more than any other consumed fruits or veggies. It’s no wonder they’re often referred to as a “superfood”.

I love to add them to my yogurt, smoothie and smoothie bowls, and to flavor my water.

I just toss a handful of blueberries into my water jug to help flavor my water. And after I drink all my water, I have a little sweet snack to munch on.

Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

I always have blueberries on hand, if not in my fridge, I have a few bags in my freezer for that blueberry pie I’ve been wanting to make. One day soon, I promise.

Until then, we have these Blueberry Zucchini Muffins to enjoy.

Full of blueberries and almonds in every bite, these muffins are not only delicious, they’re good for you too.

Made with coconut sugar (which gives them the brown coloring) they have no refined sugar in them.

I also used almonds instead of pecans and white whole wheat flour instead of the gluten-free flour. If gluten isn’t your thing, you can substitute a gluten-free flour with the exact measurements of three cups.

If you look below, you’ll notice I’ve added nutritional information for my recipes. This is the first one since I upgraded, so it may or may not show up on my previous recipes.

But it’s here now and you can use it to your advantage, if you’re counting all of that with all your foods.

Please let me know in the comment section how you like the nutritional information included now with my recipes.

As always, if you do make these Blueberry Zucchini Muffins, please leave me a comment below, or share it with me by tagging your Instagram with #sweetandspicymonkey, so I can see all the goodness you create in your kitchen. Happy Eating!
