This lower sugar wild blueberry muffin recipe is made with whole wheat flour, ground flaxseed, applesauce, and coconut oil! Ground flaxseed is one of the best plant-based sources of healthy omega 3’s fats and whole wheat flour packs in 4x the amount of fiber per cup compared to all-purpose white flour!  Although lower in calories and sugar compared to traditional blueberry muffins, these muffins do not disappoint in terms of flavor!
