Berry White Chocolate Muffins*
- 3 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar or Demerara Raw Sugar
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup Skim Milk
- 1/2 cup Yogurt
- 2/3 cup Canola or Vegetable Oil
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup of White Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Blackberries
- 1 Cup Blueberries
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 f. Spray muffin tins lightly. (This is a large batch so either prepare two 12 muffin pans — for smaller muffins — or one 12 and one 6 muffin pan for larger muffins.)
2. Place the Berries in a blender and process. Add the Sugar, Milk, Yogurt, Vegetable Oil and Vanilla Extract and blend completely, creating a pretty Superbowl Winning BALTIMORE RAVENS purple berry slurry.
3. In a large bowl combine the Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Salt.
4. Pour the berry slurry into the dry ingredients and mix.
5. Fill the muffin tins with the batter (divide evenly into 12 muffin cups if you want smaller muffins, divide evenly into 18 muffin cups if you want larger muffins — I went for larger muffins).
6. Top with 6 to 8 White Chocolate Chips per muffin.
7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Test with the toothpick test. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes in the pan before turning them out onto a cool surface. Let sit at least 5 more minutes before enjoying.
These muffins were delicious and not too sweet. They were moist, but not gooey. Muffin taster Andrew S. liked the way the White Chocolate complimented the berries. My other tasters (fellow members of the contemporary band at my church) were too busy scarfing them down to give me a comment — which I take as a good sign.

*I know there should be a comma in the name of this muffin recipe, but I just couldn’t resist. I’m guessing that should Soul/Funk/Disco pioneer Barry White eat one of these muffins he’d probably comment … “I’ve heard people say that too much of a good thing can’t be good for you, baby, but I don’t know about that… I can’t get enough of these muffins babe.”
Yeah, you’re going to be humming that all day. You can thank me later.
