It’s Secret Recipe Club time again! This month, I was paired up with Krissy from Krissy’s Creations. She has a beautiful blog full of tempting treats (Funfetti Waffles? Yes, please!)

Unfortunately, I wasn’t in the mood for sweets, so I searched for a savory recipe to make an settled on these blueberry-honey cornmeal muffins. We had some beautiful weather last week (with highs near the 80s!) and I made these muffins the cornerstone of a summertime-inspired meal of we ate them with barbecue chicken, grilled asparagus, and potato salad.  I really loved the contrast of the slightly sweet muffins with the smokey, barbecue flavors.

I was really surprised by how easy they were to make! It only took about 5 minutes to mix up the batter and then 20 minutes in the oven. They also didn’t call for any fancy ingredients – with the exception of the blueberries, I already had everything that I needed to make them.

The muffins had a coarse, gritty texture (more like cornbread than a more delicate corn muffin). They were dry, but the blueberries added pockets of moisture. They’re fabulous drizzled with more honey or spread with butter.

  1. Another simple treat with blueberries is to make biscuits or biscones as I call them. Use Bisquick or sel-rising flour, skim milk, a bit of sugar or honey, I usually skip the egg. 425-450 until brown and crispy. Heat in toaster oven to keep crispy and spread honey or butter inside. If you make small ones the should be about 100 calories.
