These muffins have an interesting greenish-blue tint to them because of the blueberry juice added to the batter. They are to die for!

What a tasty, unique looking muffin. This was something I really enjoyed making. Recipe says that it makes 12 muffins, this must be the large variety. I was able to get 24 regular sized muffins. I couldn't make the recipe exactly due to the unavailability of canned blueberries. I did check 3 grocery stores in our area without success. So, I substituted frozen blueberries that I thawed in a mug. Once thawed I rinsed them in the same cup with about 1/2 cup water. I dumped the liquid in another to cup reserve for step number 5. I wish my photo did the muffin justice when it comes to color. Thanks swingncocoa for sharing your recipe.
