“Do you know the muffin man?” I have that nursery rhyme stuck in my head this morning, because blackberry lime muffins are on my mind. I recently made these muffins for Josh and he declared them a new favorite. I think you will agree, these blackberry lime muffins are a real treat.
I usually don’t bake breakfast treats on weekdays because of time and I like to eat oatmeal, but muffins are the exception. They don’t take long to make and they help brighten the morning. Sometimes it is nice to have a special treat during the week. When I made blackberry lime muffins for Josh, he left the house with a big grin on his face-and an extra muffin in his hand, he really enjoyed these muffins:)
These muffins are bursting with fresh, plump blackberries. I highly suggest you use fresh blackberries for these muffins. Summer berries are so sweet and delicious right now, and most likely on sale. I purchased a container of beautiful blackberries for 88 cents, a bargain! I had to make these muffins with a deal like that.
Blackberry and lime scream summer to me so I added in lime zest and juice to give the blackberries an extra dose of summer love. The sugar muffin tops are pretty and offer a nice crunch. These muffins are divine right out of the oven, but we also enjoyed them the next day.
I highly suggest you start your morning off with a batch of blackberry lime muffins. They are the perfect summer morning treat and will cheer up anyone’s day. And sorry if I got the “Muffin Man” song stuck in your head, I am still humming away:)
