During my time in college, I would go to my favorite local coffee shop and enjoy a coffee and a muffin while I studied. Nine times out of ten, I would choose the blueberry muffin. Now that I’m a stay-at-home mom and anything I bake, I’m tempted to eat it in its entirety, I knew it was time for a smaller recipe.

The beauty of this recipe is it will only make 2 muffins and it’s fully of whole wheat flour, ensuring you’ll last until lunch! No leftovers and hardly any dishes to clean up. Now, that’s my kind of breakfast. All you need to have is a giant muffin tin and your baking ingredients!

The muffins are filling and when served warm with a pad of butter, makes for a delectable treat! The pops of blueberries are just incredible in every bite.

What’s your favorite muffin flavor?

    These look just perfect and I love that they are for two! Perfect since I seem to be the only one in my house who really eats the blueberry muffins!

    I too have a problem with ‘self control’ when homemade baked goods are lingering around the house! LOL! So I am always looking for recipes made for just two. These muffin looks like a keeper!

    Two muffins! What a great recipe. I’m a huge fan of muffins but my husband is strangely not- so this is the perfect thing for me. Love it!

    Your printer widget (or whatever) doesn’t seem to work. It pops up with a recipe copy that is skewed to the far right. When I hit “print,” I get a blank sheet. (I copied and pasted, but I am sure you’d rather know so you can fix it on your end.)

    This recipe works. Needs a bit more moisture though. I added an additional 2T of water. I also added a big pinch of sliced almonds. Makes more than 2 jumbos, more like 3. Bake time, in my temperture correct gas oven,at 375 convect, 24 minutes, in paper lined ceramic custards.
    They’re good!
