National Blueberry Muffin Day Giveaway & Recipe

National Blueberry Muffin Day is today! And what better way to celebrate it with a recipe AND a giveaway? Krusteaz has a delicious and simple Wild Blueberry Supreme Muffin Mix that is easy to mix and bake. I have been very grateful to have a “little help” in the kitchen, since my new pantry was only finished in the past few days! Keeps the kids happy and I have the energy to keep DIY’ing in our new home!


It is also a great base for many recipes, including my Blueberry Cherry Breakfast Cookies, which are loaded with oats, sunflower seeds and flaxseed. Portable, easy to grab and tasty!


Blueberry Cherry Breakfast Cookies


  • 1 package Wild Blueberry Supreme Muffin Mix
  • ¾ cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • 1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp cool water


Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet.

Whisk the flaxseed into water, let rest for 5 minutes, whisk until thick.

Meanwhile, process the oats through a mini food chopper or blender until chopped up a bit, transfer to a large mixing bowl. Process the sunflower seeds, until finely chopped, add to mixing bowl. Stir in the muffin mix (set the tun of blueberries aside) and cherries. Work in the butter with a heavy-duty mixing spoon, stir in flax mixture.

Drain blueberries in a fine mesh strainer, rinse gently and shake off. Add to cookie dough and gently fold in.

Drop 18 cookies on the prepared baking sheet, each about 2 Tablespoons worth dough. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden on bottom. Let cool before transferring to a cooling rack.

Makes 18 cookies. Store tightly sealed or freeze for longer term storage.

And who doesn’t love a giveaway? Krusteaz is sponsoring a nifty giveaway of a box of Blueberry Muffin Mix & 3 FREE product coupons, so the lucky winner can try a few things!

  1. I currently have almost no energy for anything but the most basic and necessary kitchen tasks. (well, most any task really). But breakfast is my hardest meal – I have to eat by a certain time. Your breakfast cookies look perfect, I can keep those by my bedside and nibble before getting up. Far better than white saltines. But using the mix as a base is pretty ingenious – skips several steps. I might even take it a step further (one less?) and use quick oats instead of reducing old fashioned oats. Will that give up nutrition?

        1. Made these this morning. Used cranberries instead of cherries and didn’t chop the sunflower seeds. Was excellent. Even my husband really liked them. I’ve been nibbling on them throughout the day and less than half the batch is left. 🙂
