There are so many wonderful and healthy ingredients in this Blueberry Muffin Recipe.
Let’s review some of them.
Flaxseed is high in Omega 3’s and fiber and offers many health benefits. These benefits have been known to include relief from constipation, improvement of digestive health, and lowering of cholesterol.

Almond meal is simply ground up almonds and provides protein, manganese and vitamin e. Manganese ensures healthy bone structure, helps regulate blood sugar and assists the thyroid. A properly functioning thyroid will help to regulate your weight, energy and skin health. Your hormones are responsible for your mood and sexual function, among other things.
Eggs provide protein and help to prevent eye disease, strokes, and heart attacks.
Cinnamon has been proven effective for menstrual cramps, infertility and against h. pylori bacteria. It can also reduce pain associated with arthritis and help to regulate LDL cholesterol.
Honey is antibacterial, antifungal and can help prevent heart disease and reduce ulcers.
At just 80 calories per cup, blueberries are quite low in calories.
They are also packed with antioxidants and can help to reduce brain inflammation.
They, in fact, are ranked the highest of any fruit in free radical fighting antioxidants. Native Americans have even used this little powerhouse to fight coughs. They also added blueberries to stews and soups and, once dried and crushed, as a preservative for meat.

I love blueberry muffins! I think I will try my hand at veganizing this recipe by subbing out the honey for maple syrup and egg for a flax egg 🙂

I love blueberries and use them fresh on cereal and in desserts when they are in season. I think I’d need to double this if I were to try it. Then I could freeze some for later. Most muffin recipes are full of things I’m not supposed to eat, but these do look healthy.
