My ex has always had a thing for blueberry muffins. When we were together I took it upon myself to woo her with muffins, so I sought out to make the perfect blueberry muffin. I set the bar high: they had to be even better than her mom's muffins which she mentioned were her favorite. 

I had to make them my way of course, which means gluten-free (so I can sneak a few bites) and refined sugar-free. After a few attempts, she was hooked. She loves these muffins so much. The response was so great that I still get requests for these babies today. She's lucky she's my best friend. ;)
