Quick and Easy Muffins for a Delicious Breakfast

A stack of mouthwatering blueberry muffins

Quick and Easy Muffins

These muffins are so easy to make, even if you aren’t a morning person.

They are also relatively low in added sugar – just a quarter cup for twelve muffins.

I added blueberries to the basic recipe, but you can substitute with your favorite muffin add ins.

At about 150 calories per muffin, breakfast on the go has never tasted so good.
