Vegan Bites: Blueberry Muffins

'Crazy Vegan Kitchen' has a fabulous blueberry muffin recipe that we tweaked a bit for our own kitchen, replacing sugar with maple syrup, changing the temperature and time, using a Chia Egg instead of Flax, but we definitely did not omit the lemon zest!! Good thing!

O has been asking, "Why can't you make blueberry muffins? It's easy. Just make muffins and put blueberries in them."
She was very willing to help with the process and eager to taste the results.
