Huckleberries are a hard-to-find, delicious treat and finding recipes that use them can be even harder. I came up with this recipe as a variation of my favorite blueberry muffin recipe and they truly are delicious! If you can't find huckleberries, blueberries work well.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg, milk and vanilla until well blended. Combine 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter until just moistened. Toss huckleberries with remaining flour to coat, then fold them into the batter. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling at least 2/3 full.

  • Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.

These muffins can easily become healthier. I reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup and made one cup of the flour to be whole wheat. It still tasted great! The next time I make these I'll reduce the butter - it's on the greasy side. But I will make them again! Yum. Happy huckleberry picking! Read More

The batter is so-o-o-o sweet! I live in Denver (high altitude) so I added at least 2 extra Tablespoons of flour...it wasn't enough. In addition to the extra flour I think I would use a little less milk and a little less baking powder. Read More

Huckleberries grow wild right in my backyard so I can pick to my heart's content. This recipe really makes the berries pop. My boys want huckleberry muffins now every breakfast. I also used this same recipe to make cherry muffins with the cherries from our tree. They were great also. Blackberries are next! Read More

These were really yummy. They were really light and fluffy which was good but made it hard for them to come out of the paper while they were still warm. Once they cooled off, the paper came off easier. Read More

I made this recipe for a work potluck using raspberries instead of huckleberries. The were tender and lovely with a burst of tart raspberry. I followed the recipe (except for the fruit) and I'll make this again. Read More

I got rave reviews for these muffins from all who tried them. I was using up my frozen huckleberries so my bake time was a little longer but other than that I made no changes to the recipe. Read More

This recipe is amazing! My husband couldn't get enough and has insisted we go out to pick more berries to freeze so I can make double batches through out the year. Followed the recipe exactly as stated and everything was perfect! Thank you so much for sharing! Read More

I'm not a baker but this recipe was foolproof enough to turn out excellent muffins in spite of my limited skills. I used fresh-picked huckleberries from the Indian Heaven Wilderness of SW Washington. Their flavor is more intense and fuller than a blueberry - the muffins were fantastic! Read More

These are delicious! We didn't have huckleberries but blueberries tasted great. I also tried with chocolate chips instead of berries and my kids absolutely LOVED them. Read More
