Blueberry Biscuit Muffins | A Biscuit & Muffin Combined into one easy, one bowl recipe!

I love a good blueberry biscuit.  Something about the combination of the lighter dough and fresh fruit appeals to me.  So I decided to try and tweak them into a quicker mixin’ and easier preparation, thus Blueberry Biscuit Muffins!  So the bread is somewhere between the two: part muffin, part biscuit, all tasty.

I use a combination of butter and coconut oil {you could also use crisco}, but feel free to go all butter, if that is your thing.  Either way these delicious little treats are sure to please and make a great brekkie on the go.   As another side note – I started out with the intent of using all baking powder for my “biscuits”; however, I ran out!! I felt like a failure as a Sunday baker and refused to go to the store.  So in lieu, I used cream of tartar.  Feel free to use a full 2 teaspoons of baking powder and omit the cream of tartar, or not! 🙂
