SRC: Blueberry-Sour Cream Muffins

My partner for this month's Secret Recipe Club was Nicole of Daily Dish Recipes.  We recently went blueberry picking with friends, and so I knew I wanted to make blueberry muffins.  Nicole's sour cream muffin recipe is the perfect way to feature big, juicy berries.  Sour cream makes the muffins tender and moist, and I added a little coconut oil for a subtle coconut flavor (you can also use all butter if you prefer).  These muffins made for an awesome breakfast with eggs and hash browns.  And, the leftovers kept nicely so I got breakfast later in the week, too!  Thanks for helping me make blueberries the star of the plate, Nicole!
