Blueberry Power Muffins


I typically shun myself when I order a muffin or other pastry at Starbucks in the mornings. But guess what? These aren't even bad for you! Fresh fruit, greek yogurt, whole oats...this recipe is exactly what the Slender Student has been advising us to do all along.

I think you'll love the texture and taste. Sweet oatmeal and plump blueberries marry into a fluffy, light muffin. Mmm.

Thanks, Brenna, for the recipe!
