According to "True Blueberry" by Dannenberg, Moody's Diner in Maine is famous for their blueberry muffins among other things. Here is one of their recipes. (I forgot to write sugar in my ingredients list but a reviewer caught my mistake. I got zero stars, so I wonder if the muffins turned out horrible with no sugar or if the reviewer added the sugar as specified in the directions anyway and gave the recipe a zero to reflecte my accidental omission. FYI, when I made them myself, they were very good! Note sugar is now in the ingredients list! )
