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?! 🙂
