Blueberry & Raspberry Muffins

This past Saturday, it poured all day long, so I caught up on some chores around the house and grocery shopping. I bought fresh berries and decided to make some blueberry and raspberry muffins! I don't make muffins very often, but I had a craving for them for some reason, and they did not disappoint! They're quick and easy and the cinnamon sugar crumble on top makes them even more delicious. :)
