Saskatoon Berry Muffins

When you were growing up, did you have a favourite afterschool snack?  I don’t remember what I had when I was at home, but I do remember what my grandma usually made for me when I was at her house–Saskatoon Berry Muffins.

Saskatoon berry muffins make for a healthy after school snack.  You'll love this easy dessert recipe with hints of lemon.  Substitute blueberries if you can't find Saskatoon berries. #muffinrecipes #saskatoonberries #afterschoolsnacks #healthysnacks #blueberries

Sure, she could have made them with blueberries, but there’s something about the slightly tart and meaty texture of a Saskatoon berry that beats a blueberry any day.

This muffin recipe comes together in minutes and uses fresh or frozen Saskatoon berries.  I’ve mostly stuck to Grandma’s tried and true recipe, but I’ve added in a bit of greek yogurt for extra protein and to help prevent the muffin from drying out.

As always, muffins are best fresh out of the oven, but are lovely as an after school snack.  Just warm them up in the microwave for 15 seconds and enjoy cut in half with a small pat of butter.
