Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Ok people... these muffins are heavenly. Last weekend I knew I wanted to make some type of healthy(ish) muffin for breakfast this week. I simply googled whole wheat muffins and these popped up. I love the website Eat Better America so I was thrilled to make their version of this classic muffin.

When I first tasted these muffins warm from the oven I thought "Meh... no flavor." But once they cooled and I tasted them again my mind completely changed. These were incredible! They are sweet yet satisfying. I paired one up with a banana every day this week and it held me until lunch. I will say I halved the brown sugar topping because it seemed excessive when I was making them but I wish I had kept it the suggested amount. They need that sugary sweetness because there isn't any in the recipe so definitely use all of it.

Overall John and I both loved these. I've looked forward to breakfast daily this week so these just might be repeated again soon!
