Orange Blueberry Paleo Muffins

Orange and blueberry make the perfect muffin.

Whenever I bite into a big, juicy blueberry it brings me back to late-summer trips down to the blueberry farm.

We would drive down farm-to-market road, where it would plunge down into the valley with Samish bay sparkling off to the left, and majestic Mount Baker tall and white, rising off to the right. The road would wind through Edison, a town so small you could hold your breath from one end to the other. Then we’d pass the Rhododendron Cafe, home to surprisingly sophisticated cuisine despite it’s humble appearance and remote location. Farmhouses would whizz by, with big friendly horses and brightly colored swing sets. Finally we would pull into the blueberry farm parking lot, gravel crunching cheerfully.

The air inside the shop was sweet from the rows of blueberry flats and freshly baked blueberry pies.

On the drive home I would run my hand over the tops of the blueberry flats, fingers grabbing onto the biggest ones, teeth turning blue.

The sweet-tart flavor of blueberry pairs perfectly with refreshing orange. These muffins are low carb, protein-filled and delicately flavored. Enjoy one for an energizing power breakfast.

    I did not have any agave so I did subsitute with honey. Is Agave sweeter then honey? Mine were not very sweet but still fluffy and nice.
    Thank you so much for posting the carb count. My husband is diabetic and limits his carbs more then most.
