Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

These Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins make a great afterschool snack or lunchbox treat!

Cool spring days are perfect for baking up a special afterschool treat for my kiddos. I like to add fruit and fiber to their snacks, so these Blueberry Muffins are a perfect fit.

The whole wheat flour gives them a little more fiber than traditional muffins, and I only do half whole wheat so that they're still fluffy. For even more fiber, add a tablespoon of ground flax seed to the batter.

Are these muffins sweet? 

These muffins are hearty with just a touch of crispy sweetness on the top because of the cinnamon sugar sprinkle topping. Yum!

If you prefer to make these dairy-free, just replace the milk with your choice of non-dairy milk. I've used almond milk before, and they taste great!

These muffins don't last long at my house as afterschool snacks! Looking for more snack and lunchbox ideas? Follow my Back to School & Lunch Packing board on Pinterest.
