Pumpkin Seed Blueberry Muffins

Makes 6


Have you stared longingly at those sweet treats behind the glass at any coffee establishment and contemplated whether those innocent looking muffins should accompany your beverage? I have lol and I've previously succumbed that is until the nutritional content (or lack thereof) was posted along side...yikes!


I can't help but love a yummy muffin to go with my green tea every now and then and you can relax and enjoy these pumpkin seed beauties because they are super healthy, refined sugar, grain and gluten free, full of protein, fibre and a sweet antioxidant rich blueberry burst with every bite.
