Blue Berry Muffins

I picked and froze a lot of blueberries this year. I absolutely love baking with them and just eating them frozen. Now I have tried a lot of blue berry muffin recipes, but I never found the “perfect” one.
I finally perfected one and is amazing!! They are moist and delicious. I promise you, if you try these, you will not be disappointed.
