Greek Yogurt and Honey Blueberry Muffins

Greek Yogurt and Honey Blueberry Muffins

 

These muffins come together super quick, and only take 18 minutes in the oven! They also freeze quite well, so you can also pop half the batch in the freezer if you want to save some for another day. I always find muffins taste best on day one – especially fresh out of the oven – but these will stay fresh for up to 3 days if you store them in an airtight container.

Bake these up for a quick breakfast, fun snack, or lunch box treats! No matter when you serve them, they’re sure to be a new favorite
