Blueberry Energy Muffins Recipe

I made you muffins. Well actually I didn’t make you anything but my friend Rachel did. She came over and brought blueberry muffins to share; aren’t we lucky? She  is one of those inspiring people who make you want to be a better you. She has transformed her life and her family. I’m so happy to know her. I had the privilege of munching on a few of these muffins and I can tell you that they do not disappoint.

These are loaded with Vitamin B from whole wheat flour and calcium from milk and yogurt, and lots of antioxidants from blueberries! You can freeze the muffins for up to a month and then thaw them at room temperature or microwave each muffin 15-20 seconds. My kids love heating them up in the morning and having a warm muffin. I even put them in their lunch bags frozen and by lunchtime they are thawed and ready to enjoy!! They make for a great energy-boosting snack and excellent with coffee (my favorite!). I like that you get so many out of the mix; they aren’t huge, but it’s all about portion control right?! 🙂

    These muffins look amazing! And I love the fact you were able to substitute some ingredients for healthier options. You can make anything taste good with unhealthy ingredients, but will they taste good if healthier ingredients are used? Well I'm going to find out! Thanks for sharing…

    But what is the calorie count for the blueberry muffins? Energy is good, but what about calories? Thanks!

      Hi Connie, I do not track calories. There are a lot of online tools and apps *(like My Fitness Pal) that allow you to do so if you need that information. Thanks for writing!
