Whole Grain Healthy Muffins

Foods that make me say "ooh":

poptarts, blueberries, fried chicken, crabs with old bay, all you can eat buffets, cookie dough, almond joy pieces, sushi, chicken teriyaki, filet, etc.
 Foods that make me say "eww":

chopped up friend onions, okra, any kind of raisins, haring, chunks of hard chocolate in ice cream.
 Fresh blueberries are like "fruit crack". I love them so much. I could eat handful after handful after handful after...well, you get the point.

There are so many fun things to do with them. Pie, muffins, cake, icing.
 I could literally spoon this batter into my mouth, and eat it raw, but I don't, because I'd probably eat it all before I could bake the muffins. This is a harty muffin, this is a muffin that tastes like it's healthy, and that isn't a bad thing, I promise.
