Remember how a few weeks ago I swore I was going to cook breakfast every morning? Well… I made it exactly 3 days into the school year before cereal was back on our table. Really though, it was a “Mommy, can I pwwwwweeeease have some cereal?!” buy and it didn’t even occur to me that it was ruining my plan until we were home.

But now, the day after I opened that box, we are out of cereal. Yeah, one day. For a box of cereal. Between two kids. Are you seeing why I don’t like buying cereal? So I’m back on the “NO MORE CEREAL” train.

This is the second time this month I’ve made these muffins. My grandma had made this recipe awhile ago and my mom raved about the muffins when she was here visiting so of course I had to make them. They are SO SOFT. Like, coffee shop muffin soft. And I made them in my jumbo muffin tin so they’re just like the coffee shop ones. I have been on this forever long quest to find the best blueberry muffin recipe and I think this is it. For real this time.
