National Blueberry Muffin Day

You probably didn’t think anything different if you ate a blueberry muffin for breakfast or a snack today. But in fact there’s reason to celebrate because July 11 is National Blueberry Muffin Day

Here’s a fun fact: blueberry was named the official state muffin of Minnesota in 1988. Blueberries are powerful little superfruits packed with vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. They also provide great health benefits and are low in calories.

Although baking blueberries into muffins kind of cancels out the “healthy” aspect, we all need to indulge once in a while. I celebrated the holiday by baking blueberry buttermilk muffins because I had some leftover buttermilk I needed to use up.

Here are some different twists on the classic blueberry muffin:

1. Skinny banana blueberry muffins for a lower-calorie option 

2. Blueberry muffins with a fruit or jam filling and crumble topping

3. Vegan blueberry-lemon muffins that are healthier and vegan-friendly
