Best fruit-filled breakfast pastries
August 19, 2018 8:54 AM   Subscribe

We have a bunch of fresh blueberries in our fridge, and I’m about to go pick a bunch of blackberries. I want your best recipes for breakfast pastries, especially muffins, that have tons of fresh fruit and are at a good intersection between healthy and tasty. Thanks!

One thing my kids love is cornbread muffins (just follow the recipe on the box) + a couple tablespoons of sugar and a bunch of blueberries.

I have made Alton Brown's blueberry poundcake several times.

Blueberry buckle is easy and delightful and is also super-great with blackberries. Blackberry breakfast bars are also really tasty and very portable for a quick meal. If you really want to lean into the 'healthy' side of the tasty/healthy spectrum, you can try this variation -- don't be afraid of the beans!

I also like Alton Brown's Blueberry Buckle recipe. The ground ginger in the batter and nutmeg send it over the top. It's also got the best berry to flour ratio (15 oz berries to 9 oz flour) of the pastry recipes I've seen.

One piece of advice for the buckle recipes in particular is to let the berries come up to room temp before using them. Makes a significant difference in my experience.
