I don’t know if this happens to you.

You hear about something, and then it is all you can think about.

My 11 year old daughter recently started a blog Stella’s Sweet Tooth {I’d LOVE for you to check her out}

She has so much fun with it, but doesn’t get to post too often because of her busy schedule.Being a 5th grader is hard work you know.  But she has been keeping a note book with her ideas in it. She’s come up with this great recipe using blueberry muffins {be on the lookout, it’s coming soon}.

Single Serving BlueberryMuffin

Now all I can think about are blueberry muffins, warm, right from the oven.  A little bit of streusel on top; YUM!  I really don’t need one, but I have to have one. ONE being the key here. If I make 12, chances are good that I’ll eat, let’s just say more than one.

    Stella is well on her way! Sounds like she has got the food blogger brain :) She must get it from her mom, because I LOVE the idea of a mug muffin! I’ve been doing a chocolate version all week, but this version sounds amazing. That crumble – YUM.

    I just tried this. I didn’t have coconut oil so I substituted it for regular canola for the muffin and I used butter for the topping. It didn’t taste anything like a muffin (it was very dense), but it was still very good; it almost tasted like a thick crust pie. I’ll be making this again!

        I made it tonight with dried mangos and a tb of coconut powder and a tb extra of sugar. I also used unsalted butter instead of coconut oil. The muffin was very moist and sweet, came out fine. It wasn’t dry and bland like the typical muffin I’d buy in the grocery store. I used the tabletop oven at 350 for 25 minutes, about the same time I’d use to bake a dozen, which I will next time, this was a great late night snack.

    OH. MY. GOD. This muffin is incredible! I made a version of it using honey instead of sugar and whole wheat flour. It was SO GOOD!! Thank you for this awesome recipe! :)

    Has any one tried the blueberry muffin with non wheat flour? I usually use Pamelas baking and pancake mix. Just wondering if it would work. Lots of gluten/wheat free folks out there.

    I was craving for a muffin, felt way too lazy to bake one and found this blog post.
    All I want to say now is thank you! It was delicious and literally took me 5 mins to do. I just added some oats to the recipe to make it even better!

    BTW; your daughter’s blog is very well done!

    Hmm. Tried to sub honey and it came out more like bread pudding, even after extra microwaving. Don’t recommend subbing out dry sugar for wet. Whoops.
