Blueberry Pie Muffins


The other day I bought my 3 year old boy a knight costume for Halloween.  This is a huge victory because his top two costume choices were:

a) corn

and

b) a ladybug.

Corn.  Seriously.

And while ladybugs are cute and all, I'm not sure he would ever live it down if that picture got shown to his prom date in 13 years.

My 5 year old on the other hand just wants whichever costume comes with the most weapons.

Go figure.

I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that it is October.  In my mind it's still summer.  And so, we eat muffins.

These are made with blueberry pie filling which makes them SO moist. I have tried 3 blueberry muffin recipes this month (including an incredibly popular one on pinterest), and this one is still my favorite. Frozen berries work great so you can make these year-round.
