Blue Berry Muffins

I dont know why but I have been baking up a storm this month. First I made 30+ sugar cookies with royal icing and then I made an apple cake! I have a huge sweet tooth and my husband blames it on the fall 🙂 I think I will too! These muffins are great! I did substitute milk instead of yogurt. My husband and I would rather have yogurt with our muffins rather than in it. I also greased the pans with shortening because I did not have enough muffin tins. Here are some photos!
