This is a berry muffin recipe created entirely by Jon’s dad, Chris.

They are loaded with a variety of berries, which can be easily altered depending on your tastes and fruits you have on hand. They are very filling and nutritious, perfect for breakfast on-the-go or an afternoon snack. These will be your absolute FAVORITE for summer!
