Healthy Blueberry Bites

I think that mini muffins are a very American comfort food. Who doesn't love to see these bite size goodies at home, work or a party. These ones are more breakfast / energy muffins than dessert muffins. Made with complete healthy ingredients and blueberries for sweetness. These blueberry bites taste great with almond butter or apricot jam. These recipe is adapted from the wonderful kid's cookbook Healthy Yummies of Young Tummies
Healthy Blueberry Bites
Makes 28 mini bites

2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

1 3/4 cups soy milk

Pumpkin seeds for garnish
