"I was looking for a simple but tasty blackberry muffin recipe and stumbled upon this one. It is easy, most ingredients you have in your kitchen, and they are delicious. I had blackberries in my freezer I picked out of our yard in the fall in the Cascades in Wa. It only calls for 2 cups, but believe me when I say they are so many bites of your berry it is unbelievable. I tried regular and large muffins and found the regular ones were much better in many ways. I cooked this recipe in the Wolfgang Pressure Oven and it was mouth watering! Like any recipe, adjust to your health needs accordingly and test it. My next batch will be made with coconut sugar. You will not be disappointed in this one!!!"

"I made these today. A batch of blackberry and a batch of blueberry. Very Good. Tho we have to watch our cholesterol I had to adapt a bit. Used Smart Balance instead of butter. Only used 1 cup of sugar and half of that was sweetener. For the salt, I used No Salt. *****"
