July 11 is National Blueberry Muffin Day!
National Blueberry Muffin Day isn’t just a day to celebrate America’s favorite muffin, but it’s another way to celebrate the blueberry for National Blueberry Month. (July was first established as National Blueberry Month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1999 and again in 2003).
Muffins may not be the healthiest breakfast food, but when you add blueberries, you’ll reap the superfruit’s astounding health benefits. To make your blueberry muffins even healthier, reduce the sugar or swap it for honey and use applesauce in place of butter.
Half the fun of eating a blueberry muffin is baking it yourself, so bake a batch yourself instead of heading to the bakery. However, you are excused from baking your own blueberry muffins if you and your kitchen have trouble getting along. We certainly wouldn’t want you to ruin this delicious day with a kitchen mishap!
