It is Blueberry season and since I am going Blueberry picking today and will have a ton I have to be ready to use them! Of course we can freeze them, and we love them so I know they won’t go bad, but how about a few recipes to go along with the overabundance we will have!

For the last few years I have had a Paleo Muffin Company, called BJ’s Bites and sell to a few local coffee shops and for the first time I am giving away the famous Blueberry Muffin Recipe! You’ll thank me! There was a time I thought I could take this muffin biz to the next level, but I didn’t try too hard 🙁 so check out the website, but don’t place an order haha. These are great to add to any school lunch or breakfast. They are also Paleo so you don’t feel too bad!
