My 3 Favorite Huckleberry Breakfasts

It's huckleberry season in Montana and I'm not wasting any time! Last weekend my mom took us to her favorite huckleberry picking spot in the Bitterroot Valley (exact location is sworn to secrecy). I've never seen so many beautiful, sweet, perfect huckleberries in my life! We picked for hours coming away with plenty of berries to snack on, bake with, and even freeze for future use. 

If you're like like me and dream of huckleberries all year round, you probably already have your favorite uses for them. For some fresh inspiration, here are my three favorite ways to enjoy these heavenly berries for breakfast:

1. Huckleberry Lemon Scones
I found a recipe for blueberry lemon scones and simply substituted hucks for blues. I also substituted Wustner Brothers Honey  for sugar because that's always a good call. You can get your hands on this amazing honey in the Big Sky PB&J, Tea Time, and Mountain Mama gift boxes.

2. Huckleberry Pancakes
Step up your brunch game by adding fresh huckleberries to your pancakes. If you haven't done this, stop what you're doing right now and get on it. And if you want to really impress your friends, order the Gather MT Brunch in  a Box for all your delicious, Montana made brunch staples. 

3. Huckleberry Almond Butter Toast
This is my go to when I'm in a rush but still need my fix of huckleberries. Start with a lightly toasted slice of local bread. Top with Moxie Nosh Almond Butter and a generous handful of fresh huckleberries.
