Blackberry and Toasted Hazelnut Muffins

The garden has produced a bumper crop of apples this year, the cherries didn’t do so well and what little we had the birds got.  The blackberries have been so abundant in our garden that I’ve picked several bucketloads already and still they are coming!  We’ve made the usual Apple & Blackberry Pies and used a quite a few in our breakfasts and I can’t resist popping a few every time I pass the kitchen (allegedly they have super skin-tightening properties so hopefully no need for that facelift!) but I needed to use more and quite fast too as once picked they only last a couple of days in the fridge.

These Blackberry and Toasted Hazelnut Muffins from Tesco Real Food use 200g of blackberries and includes a fair amount of yoghurt  (we use Total Greek Yoghurt, it’s thick and stays on the spoon, vital when the toddler is aiming for her mouth and of course she loves it!)  in the recipe for a lovely moist, fruity muffin.  You can find their recipe here.

I made a couple of adjustments to suit us, I used self-raising wholemeal flour instead of plain wholemeal flour and less baking powder to compensate.  Also swapped out 50g of the wholemeal flour for self-raising white flour, these muffins will be eaten by a toddler and the addition of a little white flour makes the muffins lighter.   And of course, no surprise I took the sugar down to 80g from 100g.

I shall be making another batch, it’s a great recipe, the softness of the fruit with a satisfying little crunch from the toasted hazelnuts.  Next time I will add more blackberries to the top, after all I have plenty!

      Thanks Lucy, yes go foraging, we have them in our garden and most fully ripe, but loads more still to get ripe!

    Those blackberries look so pretty in the muffins. I made blackberry and apple cupcakes last week, but pureed the blackberries. Now I’ve seen yours, I’m sort of thinking maybe I should have left them whole.
