White Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

DSC_0029 1-2Pinit

This morning I went to the gym for no other reason than to earn the right to gorge myself on French fries tonight. I mean, right now. I mean, what?

This morning I also became the person who responds to emails on the elliptical.

Let’s be honest. My elliptical form is questionable at best. Apparently I struggle with balance on those little ski foot things? I don’t know. Moving arm handles and spinning feet thingies and tangled headphone cords and reruns of Real Housewives just seems like a little too much to handle all at once.

Add email into that mix and things are not pretty.

Oh, and Autocorrect? I won’t give you details, but just know that things got out of hand quickly.

White Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

After the email at the gym fiasco, I most definitely made muffins for my grandma’s birthday. Then I lied to myself about them being for my grandma’s birthday and ate most of them for myself.

And now I have a perfectly fluffy, vanillaey, blueberry-and-white-chocolate-loaded muffin all over my iPhone because I’m an obsessive email checker. STOP.

If you’re a genius, you’ll make these fluffin’ muffins and eat all the batter. And pick out the white chocolate chips.

Whoops.  I didn’t say that.  But I totally did.

White Chocolate Blueberry Muffins
Author: 
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10-12
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • ¼ cup milk (I've also used greek yogurt)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (more or less to taste)
  • 1 cups flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup white chocolate pieces
  • ¾ cup fresh blueberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Beat the sugar, softened butter, milk, egg, and vanilla.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir gently with previous mixture until combined. Batter should be pretty thick, but still soft and scoopable. If it's too thick, add a little more milk.
  4. Add white chocolate and blueberries and stir gently so you don't break the blueberries.
  5. Scoop into greased muffin tin and bake for 13-15 minutes.
Notes
Frozen blueberries can work, too, but just be careful when you stir it all up so they don't break. I've also used diced strawberries instead of the blueberries and that worked well, too! Sprinkle some flour and sugar over your strawberries to keep them from getting too mushy.

Ok, quick check-in. Pinch of Yum went into a black hole of internet on Wednesday and it finally emerged on Thursday afternoon. It was sad but I was secretly happy, because I was nervous about you watching the book reveal video anyways.

No, just kidding. Sort of. Lip bite.

  1. These are lovely! Gotta love putting chocolate in muffins :)

  2. love the spin on the these muffins with white chocolate chips instead of regular ones. i tried to read emails and text while on the elliptical once, it wasn’t pretty, so i stopped shortly after that fiasco haha, i’m not a good multi-tasker in that sense!

    I’m glad the site back up and running! I was totally bummed out yesterday morning when I couldn’t get on! Oh and I want a muffin now!

  4. Oh these look so awesome…the blueberries, white chocolate, everything about them screams, make me!

    Glad your site is back up!

  5. I think I checked my email about 150 times on my phone yesterday. It’s an addiction, I’m working on it. So much so that while hiking a friggin mountain in Phoenix yesterday my phone was shoved in my sports bra. I justified it by saying I needed it for pictures when we got to the top but we all know the reality of why it was with me. Sick, sick, sick.
    White chocolate isn’t usually my thing but I have a bag of chips leftover from Christmas baking and these are totally how they’re getting used up. :)

  6. I love white chocolate and lately have been baking with them more and more. These sound so perfect!

  7. I know! I can barely handle walking and texting!! HA! These look so fantastic that I’d gladly take on the challenge of elliptical, email checking, tangled cords and housewives watching just to eat 1. or seven. Have a super weekend Lindsay!

  8. I definitely go to the gym so that I can eat French fries. They are my weakness!

  9. Oh, these look so delicious. Going in the “to make soon” category of my bazillions of recipes!

  10. Ah! Love! White chocolate would definitely be a cool flavor combo with the sweetness of the berries…I think these muffins would feel more decadent than most–and I’m SO not opposed to that. ;)

  11. YUM! I love anything blueberry. Hopefully now that summer is coming, prices are gonna get better. And with chocolate too?! I have to try this. :)

    I hope you saved some muffins for Grandma haha :)

    xoxo

  12. I made lemon blueberry donuts yesterday and as soon as they went in the oven, I thought of how there aren’t enough blueberry white chocolate baked goods in the world and how I should have used some white chocolate in the donuts. I hate it when I do that. Almost as soon as things go in the oven, I think of a way that they could have been better. I see you were more clever and put in your white chocolate before the muffins went into the oven. :)

    And about your exercise… at least you make an attempt. That’s better than most people and that right there is something to be proud about. :)

  13. Hilarious post. I feel the same way at the gym sometimes. I mean, If I’m ever at the gym. I mean, what?

  14. Bowing in awe that you managed your email on an elliptical. Haha. Loved this post, like all yours! The muffins look good. Happy Birthday to your Grandma!

  15. Oh dear the black hole swallowed my blog a few weeks ago. Scary moment.

    Sounds like you did a great job of multitasking and totally earned the muffins. I have a batch of raspberry and white chocolate muffins in the oven as I sit here!

    ps you shouldn’t be worried about people watching the video. It’s fantastic and definitely works. I’ll be right there buying your eBook on the 28th when it launches!

  16. I went to hot yoga this morning for the Exact. Same. Reason.

    And I just finished my fries from Chili’s. Mmm, peppery.

  17. oh yum.

    You are hilarious! I laugh reading your posts. And your food is yummy. How are you not 400 lbs? I’m going to be! I guess I should do the eliptical :)

    • HA! Me on the elliptical is a laugh and a half. It’s really for me to feel like I worked out instead of an actual workout… my only “real” workouts are my Saturday runs. Thanks for the nice comment – I’m glad you like the site!

    Hey Lindsay,
    New fan here. I forget how I discovered you, but this has become my new favorite food blog overnight. Not only do you have great recipes (and great photos!), but you also share how you do it! And now you have a book coming out! AND you’re HILARIOUS! Yay!
    I’m impressed and inspired.
    Thank you.

  20. Yum! These muffins look so so good!

  21. These are in my oven right now, albeit with chopped up frozen strawberries vs. blueberries. I pick fruit like I’m an Amish mother of 8 when it’s in season, and then wonder why I’ve got 12 pounds of cherries still in the freezer by March. This seems like an excellent use to put all of my fruit/berry abundance to!

    • Good call! Did you thaw the strawberries? I usually thaw them but I’ve always wondered if you can just use straight up frozen….

      • I didn’t thaw them, figuring they’d be a bit damp if I did. It did extend the baking time by a good 15 minutes, though.

  22. What a combo! Never would have thought to combine blueberries and white chocolate – love it!

  23. Your post made me laugh so hard because I do the same thing on the elliptical. I’m a constant email-checker whore and I try my best NOT to respond to emails while working out but I don’t like that badge on the mail icon just glaring at me to check my email! It hurts!

    Anyway, moving on to these muffins – I love the combination of white chocolate and blueberries. I actually just made a white chocolate macadamia nut muffin, which I absolutely loved, but I’m sure your blueberry muffin will also hit the spot. Can’t wait to try these!

  24. Hi Lindsay. I was in the mood to bake something on Friday, but didn’t want to do anything complicated and as soon as I saw this, I knew this was it. Made ‘em, ate ‘em, yum! I actually used a mix of dried blueberries and dried cherries, plumped them up a bit with hot water first – cause that was what I had on hand. My neighbors enjoyed them too!

  25. These look scrumptious! And my iPad sounds like your iPhone;)

  26. ohhh yess.. i love the addition of white chocolate.
    i signed up with my email address, but i’m not sure if it took it.. but nothing happened when i clicked the button.. :/

  27. blueberries + white chocolate = heaven

    <3

  28. I must have made these 6 times since u posted them! I absolutely love them, can we expect more pinch of yummy muffin recipes soon?!

  29. I love the idea of adding white chocolate to blueberry muffins! I am saving this recipe so I will be ready for blueberry season which is right around the corner!!!

  30. Nice recipe :) I love blueberry muffins… Such a great snack.

  31. I used a mug instead of cup… !! Came out a bit too floury but added milk choc chips and rind of orange for a change.. Yummy!!

  32. Gonzalo says:

    Hi, this is a very amateurish kind of question and it’s been a while since someone last posted, I know but I want to make some surprise white chocolate muffins for my girlfriend and I just wanted to know in case I want to just make it white chocolate if I need to increase the amount of chocolate to replace the fruit or just take the fruit out and keep the rest of the recipe intact. Thanks a lot in advance!

    I LOVE BLUEBERRIES AND MITTENS……

  34. These are really good. I’ve made them three times now and I wonder what you do to keep them from sticking on the bottom on the muffin tin? I’ve sprayed them heavily with pam and they still stick. I made them once with liners and that was worse. They stuck to the liners and when peeled apart it pulled the muffin apart with it.

  35. Mmmmm…these turned out delicious!

  36. Lisa Harris says:

    There is lemon zest on the ingredient list but not mentioned in the instructions. At what point is this supposed to be included?
    I also found it better to beat the egg and vanilla separately, and then beat with other combined ingredients as I found the mixture was inclined to separate and the butter would not mix in completely if sugar, softened butter, milk, egg, and vanilla were beaten all at once.
    The end result looks lovely though and can’t wait to taste them!

  37. Ententionally says:

    Loved this recipe, made it twice now. I used frozen blueberries for the first, forgot to thaw them out and my mixture turned to an ice-cream consistency but it still worked out great-it melted in the oven. The next time I made it improvised with milk chocolate instead of the white and it still tasted amazing-a little sweeter however.
    I also excluded the lemon zest in both recipes and it still worked out great.

  38. Bridgette says:

    I love to bake new recipes with my 10 year old daughter. We just put these in the oven. We can’t wait for them to finish baking even if they are hafe as good as the batter they will be a hit.

  39. Planning on making these for a morning spa bachelorette party this weekend. Are these baked in a mini muffin tin or a regular size muffin tin?
