Almond Meal Blueberry Skinny Muffin

Time for another muffin recipe.  I was craving something that would taste just like a blueberry muffin without all of the sugar and carbs in a traditional blueberry muffin.  This muffin is grain free & sugar free.  If you are a Fit For Photos Warrior this muffin will fill you up without going off your program.  Enjoy!
