blueberry muffins me!

My favorite low-fat blueberry muffins! these are really yummy and they have very little fat in it. Since there isn't a lot of oil and butter in it, I had to beat the egg whites separately to make the muffins fluffy, and not dense like an oat cake. The batter was really sticky, but when it came out of the oven, they were actually quite good. I usually tweak the recipes I make, and so the end result is never very good, however, this time the muffins were actually really really tasty. Even my brother ate them, and he doesn't even eat muffins, much less ones that i make.
