White Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

13 reviews / 4.8 average

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.

After the email at the gym fiasco, I most definitely made white chocolate blueberry 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

Description

These white chocolate blueberry muffins are loaded with sweet juicy blueberries and white chocolate chips. Perfect for a cozy Saturday morning.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 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
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate pieces
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Beat the sugar, softened butter, milk, egg, lemon zest, 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.

    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 don’t even love white chocolate and it just worked in these. Have a great weekend Julie!

    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!

    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. 🙂

    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!

      We should take an iPhone etiquette class! No walking and texting, no email at the gym…

    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. 😉

    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 🙂

    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. 🙂

      That’s seriously all it was. An attempt to be healthy so I could eat fries later. 🙂

    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!

    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!

        I think that should be Chili’s *has* delicious fries. Whatever. You get it. 🙂

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!
