I used frozen blueberries and they worked just fine. I also made this recipe using blackberries and my family and co-workers enjoyed them as much if not more. I drizzle glaze over them.

These muffins were very good and quite easy to bake. I used frozen blueberries that I thawed first and they were still quite tasty.

We were picking wild blueberries all week and this morning I made a double batch of the muffins adding our freshly picked berries. They smelled delcious while baking and all of us tried one a few minutes after taking them out of the oven. They were soooo good it was hard to stop eating them. This recipe is another keeper.

I have frozen blueberries that I pick each summer from my own bushes. I added them FROZEN & the muffins were just as good as the thawed ones. Sure was quicker too!
