National Blueberry Muffin Day

Just the mention of National Blueberry Muffin Day has us able to smell the warm, sweet scent of a fresh batch out of the oven. It is another reason to celebrate something yummy and is the kind of snack that can be eaten at pretty much any time of day. On July 11th, we’re going to be celebrating National Blueberry Muffin Day.

What Is National Blueberry Muffin Day?

As the most popular muffin flavor in the US, it is no surprise that blueberry muffins have a dedicated day. It’s hardly surprising as they can be a breakfast substitute, go down well with a cup of Joe, and at pretty much any other time as well. Wild blueberries were only farmed for commercial production in the early 1900s, so it is easy to take the vitamin C and B6 for granted.

It is not easy to determine how the day became a national day of the year, but we are glad it has. This is especially the case since blueberries are considered a superfood by many. They help aid digestion, can improve mental health, and even prevent heart disease. They can also improve skin health, so who would have thought that a muffin could be so beneficial? Of course, we’re not condoning it as an alternative to a balanced diet, but as a treat, they are pretty delicious.

How To Observe National Blueberry Muffin Day

The best way is by making a fresh batch. There are so many recipes available online that it is easy to find a way to make them on July 11th. The hashtag #NationalBlueberryMuffinDay can be a great source of inspiration as others share the results of their baking online.

Make some for a friend or loved one, share them with your neighbors, and use the goodness of blueberry muffins to spread a little joy in the world.
