I love blueberries and muffins. I made this recipe with my home-grown blueberries. Of course any blueberries will be good. This is not your traditional blueberry muffin. It is a muffin consistency just not as sweet like some muffins can be. These have a light sugar topping on them to give just the right sweetness, in my opinion. They can be made without the sugar topping, if you prefer. I like that this recipe only makes 12 regular size muffins. I freeze most of them taking one out of the freezer whenever I get a sweet craving. My husband doesn’t like blueberries which means I get to eat them all or share them when company comes.

Ingredients for muffins.
Lightly grease 12 muffin tins or use papers as I did. You do not need to grease the papers.

In a small bowl mix the egg whites & milk then mix in the melted butter.
Pour milk mixture into the flour mixture stirring just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Do not over mix.
Fill muffin tins or papers 3/4 full using all the muffin mix evenly in all 12 papers.
Using a spoon, put the sugar topping evenly onto the top of each muffin. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Carefully remove muffins from the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
