Blueberry Biscuits Muffins - Low Calorie, Low Fat Recipe

Oh blueberry biscuits, I just adore a fluffy, flaky blueberry biscuit. My love affair with biscuits started with my very first bite of biscuits and gravy for breakfast. It wasn’t something I had growing up, but sure took to it like a fish in water. My dream breakfast, if calories did not count, a large fresh from the oven biscuit smothered in sausage gravy with a real pork sausage link on the side. It is my idea of heaven.

Luckily I have not had to fully banish biscuits since eating healthier. I can make a delicious, low calorie one with a few simple substitutes. These new ones, Blueberry Biscuits Muffins, take the cake. Something even more magically happened when I cooked the biscuits in a muffin tin. They were still little and fluffy on the inside, but the outside got ever so slightly crisp. It was intoxicating.

Blueberry Biscuit Muffins - Low Calorie, Low Fat Recipe

My birthday was last week, and guess what I had for breakfast? Oh yes. Last time I made a batch of Blueberry Biscuit Muffins, I froze them. I defrosted two of them and enjoyed every single bite. They really defrosted beautifully and tasted just as good as the day I made them. I love the idea of these for a brunch too. It is like getting a blueberry muffin and a fluffy biscuit all in one. Plus when you bite into a fresh blueberry, it is a blueberry flavor explosion in your mouth. These little gems are loaded with the purple beauties. I may also be slightly biased in the muffins favor since purple is my favorite color.

Give these little gems a try. The dough is really easy to make and you don’t need any fancy equipment.
