Join us this Spring as we visit all the amazing stores that carry our organic Great Heart Granola and American Muesli! We’re sampling our new organic granola, sourced in part from local New England growers.
Come taste the freshness of our new line! We use all organic ingredients, including wild blueberries and 100% pure maple syrup.
If you like granola and you like muffins then you will LOVE these Blueberry Almond Granola Muffins! They’re full of super healthy ingredients like almond meal, avocado oil, fresh blueberries, and of course, Great Heart Granola – Boxford Bakehouse’s line of low fat, heart healthy, no added oil granola.
Unlike some muffins, which can be dry and crumbly, these muffins are tender and moist with a subtle earthy quality due to the addition of granola. There is something magical about the combination of blueberries and almonds – these two ingredients complement each other perfectly. At first bite you might think that these muffins are not sweet enough as the primary sweetener in this recipe is only 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. And, in fact, each muffin contains only 8g of sugar. That’s a very low sugar content when you consider that some blueberry muffins contain as much as 44g of sugar! This lower sugar content allows the most intense blueberry flavor to shine through. Trust me – you will see what I mean once you try these!
This recipe calls for avocado oil but if you don’t have avocado oil or can’t find it try substituting melted coconut oil. I definitely wouldn’t substitute vegetable oil or canola oil though. These muffins are so clean and healthy – don’t ruin it by adding factory refined oil to them. You can store these muffins in a zip lock bag in the freezer after you make a batch and pull them out individually the night before you plan to eat them.
