Blueberry Muffin in a Minute (Low Carb and Paleo Friendly)

When I first posted my recipe for a Chocolate Muffin in a Minute I received requests for different varieties.  People love to throw together these quick muffins as an easy breakfast.  I’ve mentioned before how I’ve never been a fan of Muffins in a Minute throughout my years of low carb mostly because all of the recipes I came cross all use flax seed.  I prefer a muffin in a minute without flax mostly because the taste of flax seed has never been appealing to me.  I’ve tried it so many times to give it a fair judgment.  I even tried brand new packages of flax seed and grinding my own in case the package I was using was rancid. No luck, I  always end up throwing away what I made because the flax never tastes right.  I also like the texture of the muffins without flax seed better than muffins that use flax.  To me, flax makes the muffins dense and heavy.  For this version, I used almond flour to make the muffin, which is light and fluffy.  I ended up having some leftover blueberries that I wanted to use up so I threw them in this delicious muffin recipe.  It was a quick and easy way to make a blueberry muffin that can be served for either breakfast or dessert.
