Breakfast: Vegan, sugar-free (and still good!) blueberry muffins

I love recipes that are healthy and decadent at the same time. This recipe is just as simple as any muffin recipe and, with the addition of spelt flour, soy milk and no sugar (aside from maple syrup and agave nectar), it is quite healthy, too. I have also made a version with bananas and chocolate chips, which is equally (if not more) delicious.
