Paleo Blueberry Muffins

Alright folks, got another delightful Paleo recipe for you! Got it from the wonderful book, Paleo Indulgences, and it never fails to disappoint. I doubled the portions because the original recipe only makes 6 muffins, which is barely enough for 2 people, assuming each person has 3, and trust me you will want that many. These are a moist and wonderful snack or breakfast treat. Pair with your favorite hot tea and you are set. This is a healthy recipe, and therefore you can eat them without any guilt. No gluten, no dairy, nothing. So don't feel bad if you have no self control while consuming these pretty little things. Okay, you may now proceed to indulge.
