Eat Well Wednesday: Blueberry Muffins!
Love blueberry muffins?
With berries fresh in season right now, it is the perfect opportunity to whip up these little blueberry treats for you and your family!
Thanks to the applesauce, we are able to omit some of the saturated fat from traditional oil used in baking. These muffins also have some whole grain benefits thanks to the whole wheat flour that replaces the traditional white flour.
These would be a perfect snack or part of a healthy breakfast. Bake up a batch, freeze them, pull them out as you need them. Pair with some greek yogurt and almonds and you have a perfect well balanced breakfast that will fuel you through your morning.
