These Saskatoon berry muffins are easy to make and a great way to enjoy Saskatoon berry season! Brown sugar, cinnamon, and coconut milk enhance the flavor, also making them naturally dairy-free.
These Saskatoon muffins were inspired by the flavors in my Saskatoon Berry Oatmeal Cookies and also by my daughter’s lactose intolerance. I wanted to make her a Saskatoon berry recipe she could really enjoy (with abandon) and not have to worry about taking Lactaid. These muffins are popular during Saskatoon berry season but great any time of year! They make a great breakfast, snack, or dessert!
I started working on this recipe last year, but it wasn’t quite right and then I ran out of Saskatoon berries. However, now I have perfected it!
You will need the following ingredients for these Saskatoon berry muffins:
- all-purpose flour
- brown sugar
- baking powder
- vegetable oil
- coconut milk I use light
- Saskatoon berries (Juneberries)
- lemon zest (optional)
- sparkling sugar(optional)
*See recipe card for quantities.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F/190 degrees C.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, and coconut milk.
Add Saskatoon berries to dry ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients; mix just until moistened.
Spoon muffin batter into paper lined muffin tins
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean and muffins are lightly browned.
Move to a wire rack to cool and sprinkle with lemon zest and sparkling sugar, dividing ingredients evenly between muffins, if desired. *The lemon zest really balances the sweet muffin and the sparkling sugar makes it look sparkly and inviting!
📖Variations & Substitutions
- Saskatoon berries -you can use fresh Saskatoon berries or frozen Saskatoons. *If you use frozen berries, make sure to defrost them and drain off excess liquid before you measure!
