We currently have about 10kg of blueberries in our freezer. You guys, that's a lot. It took a really long time to wash all those berries.
But the blueberry season is almost over, and we wanted to stock up for the winter! Berries have lots of antioxidants in them, which is good for you and stuff.
I'm making the most of them and baking up a storm. I feel a bit like Bubba in Forrest Gump - how many different ways can you bake blueberries? A lot, apparently.
This morning I made these blueberry chocolate brownies using this recipe, and they are delicious! They're really simple to make as well. We ate them warm, with plain yoghurt on the side.
Blueberry Chocolate Brownies

Melt the butter and stir in the cocoa powder until well mixed, set aside.
Beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla until thick and creamy.
Fold the egg mixture into the chocolate mix.
Sift flour and baking powder into the brownie batter.
Pour into a greased brownie tin and sprinkle 125g of blueberries over the top.
Bake at 170 celsius (340 F) for 30 – 40 minutes until cooked through.
