There’s nothing like biting into a warm, freshly baked blueberry muffin.
Our recipe for Blueberry Maple Muffins tastes and smells incredible because maple syrup and blueberries are naturally a perfect pair.
We’ve adjusted the usual blueberry muffin recipe in favor of healthier ingredients like all-natural maple syrup in place of white sugar.
Cold-pressed coconut oil replaces oils like corn oil, vegetable oil, or worse yet, margarine.
The result is a muffin recipe that produces moist, fluffy muffins.
