A: These muffins are best enjoyed within a day or two of baking. However, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.

Q: Can I make these muffins gluten-free?

Q: Can I add other toppings to these muffins?

A: Absolutely! Feel free to get creative with your toppings. You could add a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, or even some crushed nuts for an extra crunch.

Q: Can I freeze these muffins?

A: Absolutely! While these muffins are perfect for Halloween, you can certainly enjoy them all year round. Simply skip the mummy decoration or get creative with other festive designs.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest and 2 teaspoons lemon juice , from 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg plus 3 large egg yolks , beaten to blend
  • 2 ounces cream cheese , at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter , at room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 24 blueberries (about 1 cup)
  • 24 small candy eyes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and position a rack in the center.
  • In a medium bowl, use a potato masher or fork to crush the blueberries until they are completely smashed.
  • Lightly coat the cups of a standard 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice, and salt.

  • Gently fold the blueberry mixture into the flour mixture until just combined (there may be some lumps, which is okay).
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake the muffins for 25 to 30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Use a toothpick to test if they are done - it should come out clean.
