Orange Blueberry muffin

Today's recipe is a healthy , vegan and delicious dish - orange blueberry muffins . This recipe contains No egg, No milk or milk products and above all made out of whole wheat flour. I haven't tried muffin even once so was searching for recipes in net and found this awesome recipe. This recipe is really healthy and tastes really good . As it is made of whole wheat flour it might not be fluffy and soft as of made from all purpose flour but its really nutritious and delicious when compared.
