Healthy Wild Blueberry Muffins


Today's recipe is from Sharing Plate… the inspiring food blog by cooking coach Monica Puri Bangia, who's based in northern New Jersey about 15 miles west of Manhattan.

She's an incredibly versatile chef who studied at the French Culinary Institute in New York City and shares recipes made with good, healthy-choice ingredients.

Monica uses only wild blueberries, and she said that frozen blueberries work very well in this recipe. They are so good, that by the time one batch is done, her daughter is telling her it is time to make more!

About our wild blueberries 

Vital Choice premium, wild organic blueberries grow naturally for optimal purity, flavor and nutrition, and flash-frozen to lock in freshness. Wild blueberries grow smaller and sweeter than cultivated berries, with up to three times more berries per pound, plus higher levels of antioxidants. As Andrew Weil, M.D. notes, “Blueberries pack the most powerful antioxidant punch of any fresh vegetable or fruit…”
