Healthy Nut Muffins (dairy free)

Sometimes you come across a recipe that is so good that you feel almost guilty for not sharing your keeping a secret that could change somebody's life. Well, that is the case with these muffins. My family loves them so I thought I'd share!

Healthy Nut Muffins

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup blueberries (or dark chocolate chips!)
