The Best Single Muffin Recipe

I know I know, I posted a muffin recipe last weekend, but hear me out.  This muffin recipe is completely utterly totally different from the last one.  Well- maybe not that different but they definitely are not the same recipe.  For starters this recipe only makes a single muffin.  Yep, you read that right, no leftovers no overeating just you and your one single muffin.


I decided to go with this type of recipe this weekend after desperately trying to find something that I could make for breakfast with only 1 tablespoon of butter in my fridge.  Needless to say, I need to go to the store.  But that’s off topic, let’s get back to the situtation right in front of us- breakfast.



This muffin is perfectly fluffy with the perfect amount of crunch that the outside needs.  The blueberries I added as my filling meld perfectly into the mixture and create beautiful swirls of color.  This recipe would work well with just about any filling, but I have a special weak spot for blueberry muffins, which is why I chose them for this recipe.  Give me a sunny morning, a blueberry muffin, and I’ll be one happy camper!
