Blueberry Basil Jam Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the final day of National Blueberry Month so I pulled out a jar of Blueberry Basil Jam and made some muffins!!

Blueberry Basil Muffins

It's time for Muffin Monday.......

Muffin Monday
Each month Stacy of Food Lust People Love invites us to join her in sharing muffin recipes.  Let's see what was brought to the table today.....
#MuffinMonday is a group of muffin-loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday, can be found on our home page.

Blueberry Basil Muffins

Our son, Tony, makes jam that he sells at local Farmer's Markets using the business name Tony's Sweet Eats.  This results in us having a plethora of jam in our pantry.  He has many delicious and unique flavors and I often use them in cooking or baking.

I have used his Purple Haze (Lavender) jam in ice cream.  I have made Chocolate Raspberry Bars using his Raspberry Mango Jam.  This Candied Jalapeno Cheese Ball was a huge hit.  A peach and nectarine jam was perfect for this Honey Bundt Cake.  His grapefruit jam mixed with some yogurt was the perfect dressing for this Grilled Fruit Salad.

But folks, this Jam Muffin recipe, that I found on Pinterest, makes my heart sing because a half-pint jar is the perfect amount.  I have enough flavors that I can make a different muffin each day for a month.  July is National Blueberry Month so I pulled out the jar of Blueberry Basil and went to town.

Blueberry Basil Muffins

Tender, delicious muffins made with homemade Blueberry Basil jam. You can make these muffins your own by using whatever flavor jam you love.
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 20 MinTotal time: 25 Min


  • 2 c. flour
  • 3 t. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. canola oil
  • half pint jar of Blueberry Basil jam (or your favorite flavor)


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  2. Whisk together the egg, milk, and oil. Pour into the well of dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Add the jam and stir gently until combined.
  3. Divide between the wells of a 12-cup muffin pan that has been treated with baking spray. Bake in a preheated 400* oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the center removes cleanly.

  1. I love using jam in muffins because I often have half a bottle languishing of several in the refrigerator. Great flavor combo, Wendy!

  2. Lucky you for having the special jam connection! And blueberry basil is definitely a flavor I need to try, especially if muffins are involved!

    1. I am so lucky. One child makes jams, and another makes soaps. lotions, candles, and lip balms. I always have great stuff in stock.

  3. I like the combo of blueberry and basil. Need to try this jam muffins looks delicious.

  4. I have had some of that jam and it's delicious xoxo Great idea to put it in muffins!

    1. Thanks Karen, he does a great job with his jam and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    2. How do we get Tony's Jam Recipes

    3. I don't think he shares his recipes as he sells the jam at Farmer's Markets.
