Blueberry Munchkin Muffins

Blueberries are everywhere right now, I’m seeing all kinds of great blueberry recipes on blogs and in magazines.  Here’s another one!  It’s for blueberry muffins, but on a healthier note.  My kids love little muffins, and can eat a ton of them.  So I don’t feel as bad about what they are eating when they are eating these!

I got this recipe from a mom of one of my son’s schoolmates, it looks like she got it from Nick Jr. family website.
Enjoy!

    I wish I could find a decent deal on fresh blueberries – but they are usually pretty expensive here. Thank goodness for frozen blueberries!
