Blueberry Muffins

BlueberryMuffins

I love blueberry muffins!  Every time I eat one I am flooded with memories of when I was a little girl visiting my Nana. She would always make my sister and me blueberry muffins for breakfast, and they were so yummy!  After finding out I have a gluten and casein allergy, my blueberry muffin recipe was definitely at the top of my priority list to recreate and line up with my new dietary lifestyle.  I created my original recipe and posted it to my blog, but was still wanting to lower the amount of honey, and remove the use of Greek yogurt.  I have been working really hard in the kitchen tweaking this recipe to fit my taste buds, and finally I think I hit the nail on the head!  This recipe is a must have in my household, and I hope you enjoy it as well.  I like to make 2 batches at a time and freeze them.  They warm up beautifully fresh  and make a great from-scratch go-to breakfast!
