White Chocolate Saskatoon Muffins

These moist muffins with Saskatoons combine my love of Saskatoons with white chocolate, which, in my opinion, is the best combination for Saskatoon berries. The addition of white chocolate makes them perfect berry-type muffins.

What are Saskatoons

Saskatoons are purplish-black berries that grow on shrubs 1-5 meters tall, depending on the variety. They are known under many different names, such as serviceberry, shadbush, chuckley pear, or juneberry. They have a unique flavor that is almost a mix of almonds, cherries, and grapes.

How to Bake With Saskatoons

Saskatoons are one of the best berries to cook and bake with. They are firm and hold together well in pastries like The Best Scones, which are squished into form. Saskatoons and lemon go great together, like blueberries, and they make a great Lemon Saskatoon Loaf. You can substitute Saskatoon berries for almost any recipe that has blueberries, and they will bake up the same.

How to Make Saskatoon Muffins

This recipe is easy to prepare: Mix the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, then mix together. Add berries and chocolate, and bake! See the recipe card at the bottom for exact instructions.

  1. In a large bowl, whisk dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients.
  2. Pour the liquid mix into the dry ingredients and mix.
  3. Stir in the Saskatoons and white chocolate chips gently.
  4. Pour into muffin cups, and bake.

Karlynn’s Tips & Tricks

  • Fresh or frozen saskatoons work equally well in baking up these muffins.
  • If Saskatoons are not in season, you can always substitute blueberries.

Where Do I Get Saskatoons

Depending on where you are, some berry UPicks are usually around if you don’t want to traipse through the woods to forage your own. Sometimes in specialty grocery stores, you can find them frozen depending on the time of year. When we go picking saskatoons, we pick extra and stock up my freezer for the year. We always make some tasty Saskatoon jam!

The Saskatoon berry has been a family favorite for generations, and my family thoroughly enjoyed these tasty white chocolate Saskatoon muffins!

Happy Baking!

    Hi Karlynn,

    I was just out to Creekside Saskatoon Berry Farm (north east of Edmonton) and picked the most beautiful Saskatoon berries (my mom & I picked 4.5 gallons in under 2 hrs!). I highly recommend this u-pick farm to all your readers in the Edmonton area.
    That led me to your site for Saskatoon recipes. Can’t wait to try the muffins and Saskatoon sauce!
    Thanks so much for representing this Canadian treasure!

    Just have a question you had put down for flour 13|4 cup I’m confused could you please verify that please. Is it 13 cups or 4 cups of flour thank you…

  5. Patricia Aackerlund says

    Magpie do these get sent to markets like Whole Foods in Texas? Are they similar in taste to blueberries? (I have not yet met a berry I did not find delicious)
