Pure, organic maple syrup is an excellent natural sweetener. It provides a rich flavor, too.
Blackberries are rich in fiber, Vitamins A, C, and K, as well as antioxidants.
You can make these muffins in advance and pop them into a little hand on one of those busy mornings. You can substitute other fruits for the blackberries as they come into season.
As always, we recommend using in-season and organic ingredients.
