When I purchased these blueberries I had very healthy intensions, its swimsuit season after all. Why not stock up? Let the healthy eating commence!

Yeah, I had slight slip up. Ya see, it was cloudy this morning…sorta chilly and sprinkley-ish, not at ALL swimsuit weather. One thing lead to another and the next thing you know this happened . . .

Clearly I cannot be trusted, even with the healthiest of ingredients. I’m choosing to believe that despite the butter, sugar and flour the nutritional value of the almighty blueberry prevailed. The next time you find yourself with a basket full of blueberries on a cloudy day, might I strongly suggest you try out these muffins. Trust me, they’re worth the splurge. Like the great Milli Vanilli once sang, Blame it On the Rain. So wise.
