Blueberry Muffin Recipe with a hidden chocolate surprise! #LoveDoveFruits #ad

Let’s just say I have a slight love affair with chocolate.  The darker, the better.  Period.  Both of my girls also share my love.  They love it when I surprise them with special treats, especially when chocolate is involved.

Part of our morning routine is breakfast.  The kids start to think about what they are going to eat the moment their feet hit the floor.  One of their current favorites are muffins.  Austin loves my coffee cake muffins, while Addie on the other hand requests chocolate chip or blueberry.

When I was challenged to create something delicious with DOVE® Fruit from Walmart, I knew exactly what I wanted to make!  I could take both of Addie’s loves, dark chocolate and whole blueberry fruits to create an amazing treat.

Since we were going to have a rather rough weather day, I decided it would be the perfect day to surprise the family with a new muffin variety that we could indulge our sweet tooth and still feel so good about eating (it has whole blueberries after all!)

Muffins are actually quite easy to mix together, spoon into a tin and bake.  You really can’t go wrong with these moist, melt in your mouth chocolate covered blueberry muffins!

You need just a few basic pantry ingredients and delicious DOVE® Fruit candies from Walmart.  I found mine by the checkout, but most stores will have them stocked on the candy aisle, with other standing bagged chocolate covered fruits.

Blueberry Muffins with a Chocolate Surprise


  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup of sweetener (sucanat or sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/4 cup of Almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of melt oil (I prefer coconut oil)
  • 1 cup of chocolate covered blueberries (DOVE® Fruit brand)


To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Line your muffin pan with liners or lightly oil.

Mix together your sweetener and coconut oil.  Stir in your egg and mix well.  Next add your Almond milk and stir until combined.

Finally add your dry ingredients and stir well.

Fold in the DOVE® Fruit chocolate covered blueberries.

Fill each muffin tin 2/3 of the way full and bake for 15-17 minutes until just barely browned.

Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes and serve warm.
