White Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

I recently had to purchase some textbooks for my oldest daughter. My son was watching and asked how it worked. I told him I paid the bill online. He said, "What?" So, I repeated that I paid the bill online. He looked at me and said, "They mysteriously take your money?" It really feels like it. My daughter will be happy when all of her textbooks arrive.
Well, I have started making muffins again for breakfast before school. My daughter's favorite muffin is blueberries if you couldn't tell. I have made To die for blueberry muffins. I have made Baking Illustrated's Blueberry Muffins just to name a few. Sometimes the muffins are very good the first day and not so much the second. When I saw Our Favorite Blueberry Muffin on the King Arthur website, well I had to try them. I will say these muffins are good. They taste just as good the next day which is the goal of making the muffins besides making my youngest daughter happy. I can say they are my youngest daughter's favorite.
