Spring is almost here. The birds are singing. The trees and flowers are starting to reveal the beautiful colors of the rainbow. With all that beauty beginning to unfold kids and Moms realize that another school year is coming to a close. This means that the refrigerator door will be constantly ajar with little eyes gazing hungrily inside looking for a quick snack or a gooey dessert.

A cache of sugar free blueberry muffins might just fill the bill for a quick kid friendly dessert. Blueberry muffins made with natural fruit sweeteners instead of sugar provide some good tasting nutritious ingredients.

The kids will love the flavor of these fresh baked goodies. Moms can make one batch of these kid friendly desserts that can last the entire week. These muffins can be served at almost any meal. They make great quick breakfast treats.
