Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Today is an awful day - We got some snow all night and this morning, and now it changed to icy rain. The commute back home will be awful!

Too bad I don't have any of these left...

These were healthy and tasty muffins!

Did I say I love my square muffin pan?

I love the square pan. How much lemon to skim milk do you use in lieu of the buttermilk? I have some frozen blueberries and this looks very tasty.

Sorry about your nasty weather. Hang on, spring IS coming!! I like that square muffin pan, too....somehow they look more appealing square. By the way, aren't you glad you don't have to use those spiral stairs in the weather you're having?

I love your square pan too! Is it easier to eat a square muffin or a round one? =P

The square pan is adorable. I've been coaxing my mom into eventually buying one so I can experience the joy that is square muffins. Not to mention those muffins looks spectacularly delicious!
