Berry Patch Muffins

Our Blueberry bush has just been loaded with berries this year, and we have had a very nice harvest. When I go out to pick the berries, I don't always make it back to the kitchen with all the berries, I just love eating them right off the bush.  We have an organic growing system here so we never have to worry about the product having anything undesirable on it.  I didn't eat all the berries today, so I am making these awesome muffins and you are just in time to share them with me.

I am so glad that I had some of this batter in the refrigerator, so when you dropped by I could serve you these hot Berry Patch Muffins in just 15 minutes. Now don't forget your basket of muffins when you leave, hope you have a fabulous week and come back soon!
Peace and Joy
