Blueberry Muffins

I absolutely love blueberry muffins, especially during the spring time because they are so light and fruity. There are plenty of recipes for muffins, some which have different consistencies or colors, and some that are more healthy for you. While these are not vegan, I would like to try a vegan variation of these so if you have one, let me know in the comments. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have. (PS- I made a batch of these on Easter, and they were gone within minutes of being served)
