Easy Blueberry Muffins

Easy Blueberry Muffins

Summer is definitely upon us now and with it comes lots of fresh berries! We covered strawberries in our last post, and next up comes blueberries.  Manitoba is a blueberry hot spot and lots of people pick wild berries in cottage country to put in pretty much everything, including pancakes, muffins, and pies.  They are a tasty addition to lots of dishes, and they are packed with lots of nutrition as well.

This muffin recipe is super easy and shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to put together.  They are best straight from the oven while the blueberries are still nice, soft, and juicy.
