So in case you didn’t see my previous post about blueberry pie, I went blueberry picking. And picked 12 lbs of blueberries.

Hence the abundance of blueberry posts.

Hence Blueberry muffins.

In my opinion, they are the best breakfast muffins. Not to sweet, but not too tart. And honestly, you can adjust them to however you like yours. More sugar, less, more salt, less, etcetc. In my opinion, when it comes to flavor, you can mess around a teeeeeeny bit. Just don’t mess with the flour.

Seriously.

So my cousin Cooper gave me this recipe. So I don’t really know where it came from. But it’s yummy!
