NO SUGAR ADDED BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

Finally back home after a quick weekend in Rome, GA for my husband's 50th High School Reunion.  What a fun weekend!  Can't wait to share it with you.  

I haven't been "around" for a bit because I also came down with bronchitis and a sinus infection (still taking my meds) but feel better every day.  It is not a fun experience at all, and I have a lot to catch up with.

These blueberry muffins I made and shared with the volunteers at Hillcrest Thrift Shop the last time I "worked".  (I had to cancel last week's shift because of my illness.)  Anyway, they were so good. As I was leaving, Jerry asked me if I had made the muffins in the community room.  I told him I had and he said, "I knew you did. They are delicious." Thanks, Jerry.

This recipe from Holidays & Parties was contributed by Mary Lou Moore from Mira Mesa High School in San Diego, CA.  She said it was from a cookbook she wrote and dedicated to her husband, Dennis, who has Type 2 diabetes.  She called them Sugar-Free Blueberry Muffins, but I changed it to No-Sugar-Added. The blueberries have natural sugar so technically they aren't sugar free; but they have no added sugar.
