Breakfast Blueberry Muffins

I put this recipe together after my husband asked if I could make blueberry muffins. I had never tried, but the best thing about cooking and baking is experimenting!

I did go a little overboard on the quantity, so most of them became a treat for my other half’s colleagues the next day – they must have liked them, because apparently they were gone in two minutes!
