These are delicious, chewy muffins that burst with blueberries! Very wholesome, healthy, and low-fat! Mmmm! Note: cutting out the small amount of oil in the recipe will alter the texture.

This is a very dense and filling muffin. Great for a morning meal to go. I did add some wheat bran to make it even more heart healthy. Since I added more dry ingredients I left the blueberries partially frozen to add some moisture. A good healthy alternative, thanks for posting!
