These light, fluffy blackberry muffins are delicious and easy to put together. Coarsely chop frozen blackberries ahead of time, and place them back in the freezer until they’re ready to stir into the batter. You can also use fresh blackberries or mixed frozen berries. To freeze muffins, let cool completely, and place in zip-top plastic bags. Reheat in microwave 20 seconds.
