Homemade Blueberry Muffin Recipe

There’s nothing like a homemade blueberry muffin.  They are great any time of the year, but they have an extra something special to share when it’s blueberry season.  The blueberries are just a little plumper and filled with a natural sweetness that screams July in the northeast.

This muffin recipe is simple, but the end result is sweet yumminess.  Did I mention how easy they are to make?

Blueberry muffins are great for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon snack.  Actually, these are great for lunchbox packing!  If you have a child that’s not big on sandwiches like I did, you can cut these in half and add a thin layer of peanut butter or flavored cream cheese to serve as a sandwich alternative.
