The basic ingredients for this recipe came from a Watkins Keepsake cookbook. I had made Pecan Pie for my daughter, but my husband does not care for pecan pie so I made these Blueberry muffins for him. He loved them. They are quick and easy, and not too sweet. Just the way he prefers them.

It is a quick and easy muffin that you can whip up in a flash. You could even add other chopped fruit or berries if you desired. Just trying to please everyone in the family, & this recipe made it really easy.
