  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup sourdough discard
  • 1 lg egg
  • 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and liberally grease a muffin tray - or line with muffin liners.
  • In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl whisk the sourdough discard with maple syrup, eggs, butter, vanilla. Be sure to whisk it well so that everything is incorporated, otherwise it'll cause streaks in the muffins.
  • In another small bowl add the blueberries and a tablespoon of flour and gently mix to coat the blueberries. This will prevent your berries from all sinking to the bottom of the muffins.
  • Add flour mixture to the starter mixture and mix well. Gently fold in blueberries and spoon batter into muffin tins.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, testing with a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.
  • Let rest in pan for 5 minutes until removing to finish cooling on a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy!


No unsalted butter?  No problem.  You can substitute salted butter for unsalted butter.  For every half cup of salted butter for unsalted, just cut the salt by 1/4 teaspoon.
Store loosely wrapped at room temperature for a few days, in an airtight container in the fridge for a week, or in a freezer for up to 3 months.
