I have been experimenting with ways to incorporate bee pollen into my diet. Yes, it’s delicious in smoothies and scrumptious on its own…yet these muffins are a fun way to incorporate this superfood and an excuse for me to make my favorite blackberry muffins… —Deco Tartelette
Blackberry + Bee Pollen Muffins
raw or organic unsalted butter, melted and cooled
large organic egg
organic cane sugar + 1 teaspoon for sprinkling
blackberries (a generous cup)
bee pollen (you can find high-quality, local bee pollen in the supplement section of your local natural foods store)
Place butter, egg, and milk in a medium sized bowl. Mix until blended.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in the blackberries.
Distribute batter evenly between six paper liners. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. You will know the muffins are ready when you use the toothpick trick (place a toothpick in a muffin…the muffins are ready if the toothpick comes out clean).
Once you remove from oven, sprinkle tops with bee pollen. Serve warm with blackberry butter (recipe below).
Using a fork, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
