One of my favorite things in the world is waking up on a lazy Sunday and making blueberry muffins. The smell wafts throughout the house as they bake, and I can’t wait to get them out of the oven to butter them while they are piping hot. It reminds me of when I was little… My grandma used to make the BEST blueberry muffins. This recipe is darned close!

There’s something about the smell of freshly baked blueberry muffins that makes me feel happy and warm inside. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when I see those berries popping through the muffin tin. Hope you love this made-from-scratch recipe as much as I do! Feel free to share it with your friends and family and start that blueberry muffin making family tradition!
