Yesterday I made blueberry “muffins” that tried to be healthy. They turned out more like blueberry pancakes, but they were delicious anyway. They were too liquidy, so next time I might cut the oil to thicken up the batter. Also, the blueberries were frozen so they were slightly watery. I’m not sure how to fix that – maybe rinse and dry them beforehand? That might solve the additional problem of the dough turning blue from watery berries.
