Sweet, soft and easy to make mixed berry muffins.
I love making muffins! They are easy to make, individual size and perfect for any party!
Besides chocolate, I’m a sucker for anything berry.
Berries add color, texture and a but of a fresh bite to these vanilla base muffins.
For the batter I am doing a blend of all-purpose and almond flour.
It results in a lighter muffin with a hint of almond which is a game changer.
You can use store bought almond flour like me or make your own!
Use any fruit or berries you have on hand to make these muffins. I am using a frozen mix that contains strawberries, blackberries and blueberries.
If you prefer chocolate chips over berries you can definitely make that substitution.
Make thee mixed berry muffins for the next family or friend gathering.
Mix Dry Ingredients
First, preheat your oven to 350°F and line your muffin in with cupcake/muffin liners.
In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder and salt. Mix then set aside.
Mix Wet Ingredients
In a second bowl or large measuring cup, combine the warm (not hot) milk, maple syrup, and 2 whole eggs, mix well then add the softened or melted coconut oil and real vanilla extract.
Mix again and set aside.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients
Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix well until all of the dry bits are absorbed and the batter is lump free.
Scoop and Bake
Fill up the muffin tin with the batter. You can fill it almost all the way to the top then bake at 350°F for 25 to 27 minutes.
Make The Cream Cheese Frosting
The muffins are delicious on their own but if you want to take them to the next level, make this cream cheese frosting.
In a large bowl combine the softened cream cheese, sifted powdered sugar, the zest of 1 lemon and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
Mix well until the frosting is creamy and lump-free.
Add the frosting to a ziplock bag or piping bag then refrigerate while the muffins finish baking.
Once the muffins come out of the oven and completely cool to touch, frost them and add some fresh berries on top.
