Light and Fluffy Blueberry Muffins

Looking to make a quick batch of cup cakes loaded with good for you blueberries?  This recipe makes the most light and fluffy blueberry cup cakes ever!  I picked up this recipe from my friend Nishma who asked me to stop by for a quick cup of tea and a light breakfast after my morning gym workout one day. These delicious blueberry muffins were on her menu.  Light and fluffy and sweetened to perfection, these muffins tasted so good with a cup of tea in the morning, that I must admit I did feel a little guilty having it after my workout.  But Nishma informed me that it was light on the sugar and made with almond flour.  Somehow hearing this made me enjoy the muffin even more.

I got the recipe from Nishma and made these muffins at home and they turned out as fluffy and delicious as I remembered.  And because I just couldn’t help myself, I did decorate my blueberry muffins with edible leaves and flowers so they looked just a little prettier.  I dusted them with powdered sugar first and then topped them with mint leaves and pelargonium petals from the garden.
