Blueberry Muffins are so easy to make and taste is also so yummy.I tried with basic vanilla cake recipe.First time i bought blueberries from shop but we are not satisfied with that new taste so i planned to bake muffin with these blueberries.
Health Benifits :
Blueberries are very rich in vitamin C which reduces intraocular pressure,decreasing the potential for developing the galucoma(eye problems).It reduces cancer risk , improves heart health,fights UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) and boosts brain health.
These Muffins are tasty with good texture.Adding Orange / Lemon zest gives mild sourness to the muffins.If you are not fond of adding blueberries,you can replace it with same amount of chocochips to have chocochips muffins.
