Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Do you find yourself over-run with blueberries and are unsure what to do? I have a solution. And you’re going to like it.

Blueberries are one of my favourite things to add to muffins – especially when we are in the midst of blueberry season! These muffins get a nuttiness from whole wheat flour, and are lightened up with the use of some apple sauce in place of some of the oil. They are also very adaptable – add in some raspberries instead of the blueberries – or go all out with some peaches. 

 

Normally when I make muffins I make a different one each time, because I find it VERY hard to follow a recipe- and there’s just so many flavour combinations out there. However- I keep coming back to this recipe. 

I love a muffin with a good domed top- Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
