Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

We love muffins! But what do we love even better? A healthy version, of course! This recipe was in a local grocery store flyer, and when we saw it, we just knew we needed to try it...for all you readers, you know. Ok, ok...maybe we just wanted to try them because we wanted to eat them...they sounded so yummy!! But the great thing about these muffins is that they are not overly sweet, so they make a good snack in the middle of the day. Try them soon, folks! You won't be disappointed, and either will your kiddos!
