BLUEBERRY MUFFINS- Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free & Oil-Free

Last week in Toronto the sun was out and the temperature was climbing. This week it’s back to clouds and wind. The change in temperature gave me the urge to bake in an attempt to warm the house up a bit. Blueberry muffins were on the menu- juicy blueberries for the upcoming summer and comforting muffins for the exiting spring.
