Blueberry Muffins!

Yup, these were so good. I’m looking forward to throwing one in my son’s lunch box tomorrow before he heads to camp. He was bummed that they weren’t done before he went to bed, but I’m pretty sure that he will be asking for one for breakfast. I got the recipe from http://www.paleocupboard.com, and was very happy with how it turned out. I did no do the crumb topping. I doubled the recipe so that I got a dozen muffins out of it.
