Blueberry season calls for blueberry recipes. It’s summertime, so I’m sure you have seen pretty good deals on blueberries at the grocery store, or have gone out with your family to one of those cute U-Pick farms to grab a bushel of berries. Blueberries are great for snacking and are delicious on top of yogurt, cereal, pancakes and waffles, and they are healthy, too. But there are more creative ways to consume these yummy berries.
I have gone around the internet to round up my favorite blueberry recipes from fellow bloggers. Support their blogs and check out these awesome blueberry recipes.
I was scrolling through Instagram and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw how lovely these Blueberry Muffins looked!

If you are a foodie, I am sure you are acquainted with Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest. Her recipes and food photography are amazing and so beautiful.

Blueberry recipes don’t all have to be baked goods! If you have a huge batch of blueberries that you won’t get through just by eating them raw, cook them down and make blueberry jam!

And finally, the quintessential blueberry recipe: the blueberry cobbler. This recipe is by Steph from Sweet and Savory Steph. She is a mama of three, and writes healthier versions of comfort food recipes. This cobbler recipe features the fruit, the blueberries in this case, and has just enough of the cobbler dough to make the cobbler come together nicely.
