I spy with my Owl eyes. . . a forest full of wild berries, ripening with each and every gloriously sunny PNW summer day.  Yum!

Thimbleberries, Red Huckleberries, Trailing Blackberries, and Salal berries are a delicious trail snack this time of year.  Why not harvest some handfuls and make a batch of tasty, moist Wild Berry Muffins?

Here’s a scrumptious recipe for you to enjoy, courtesy of Pat’s mama Cathy:

Wild Berry Muffins


~One pint of freshly harvested wild berries (I used a combination of Red Huckleberries, Trailing Blackberries, and Salal Berries)

~2 or 3 very ripe bananas

Trailing Blackberries!

~1/4 cup oil

~1 cup sugar

~2 cups flour

~1 tsp salt (or less)

~1 tsp baking soda

~chopped walnuts (optional)


Pre-heat oven to 360 degrees.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until till soft.  Add the oil and sugar and mix well.

Muffins made with freshly harvested Red Huckleberries, SAlal Berries, and Trailing Blackberries. . .Yum!

n a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda.  Add in the the banana mixture, stirring gently until well-combined.  Fold in the berries.

Grease the muffin pan and fill each muffin about 2/3 full with batter.  Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy these delicious Wild Berry muffins!  I hope you and your family are having an amazing summer full of berry-stained adventures!  I'm feeling super grateful to live in this beautiful and abundant landscape...
