Blueberry's great!: Great berry/fruit. My favorite after rasberries. But the muffin is not good. Starches and sugars. Empty calories!

Antioxidants: Blueberries are rich in antioxidants which helps prevent cell damage in your body. Blueberry muffins are great tasting too :).

Blueberries.: I agree with dr. Namey. Blueberries can cling to pesticides - so try to use organic berries only. They are rich with anti-oxidants and so good for you!. The muffin not so much. I have a variety of blue berry bushes so that they can be harvested over many months.

The blueberries.: The healthiest part of a blueberry muffin would be the blueberries therein. Muffins by definition are not healthy, and making a muffin with blueberries or bran or apples won't magically make the muffin a healthy food. Tasty, yes, but not healthy.
