My Farm Wild Saksatoon Berry Muffins


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2 cups whole barley flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (reserve 2 tsp)
  • 1/3 cup vegan sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts (optional)
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 cup water or apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup washed saskatoon berries (or blueberries or any other edible wild berry that doesn’t have a great big seed, i.e. not wild cherries)


Preheat oven to 400F. Oil 8 to 12
muffin tins.

In a bowl combine flour with baking
soda and sugar. In another bowl mix up
water with oil and vanilla.

Pour liquid ingredients into dry and
mix up quickly until all ingredients
are moistened, but do not over mix.
Batter can look a little lumpyish. Fold
in berries and nuts.

Separate into muffin tins and sprinkle
tops with the reserved sugar.

Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on
size of the tins. Muffins will be done
when they are golden on top, pulling
away from the edge of the pan and when
the top springs back up when lightly

NOTE: Saskatoons are a very popular and
abundant berry where we are. Although
we sometimes call them “highbush
blueberries” they are actually related
to the apple family. They are
apparently loaded with antioxidants
plus they taste great! They are also
knows as June berries and Service
berries I believe.

Serves: 8-12

Preparation time: 35 min
