Blueberry Vanilla Streusel Muffins

My fiancé has a potluck tomorrow at his job and needs to contribute something. I decided to make a batch of these delicious muffins. The recipe is an old one with some of my flair added to it. Packed with a good amount of fiber, these are a good alternative to a traditional muffin. My favorite part of the recipe is that it calls for old fashioned oats. I detest oatmeal, but since it is hidden, I get a good dose.

The original recipe didn’t have a streusel topping. I thought that the muffin needed an extra something to make it even more delicious. Streusel is so easy to make and can be put on top of anything that you bake.

I doubled the recipe for the potluck and it yielded 26 medium sized muffins. You can make them as large as you want or make mini ones. Do not over bake!! These muffins are at it’s best when they are soft and pillowy with the blueberries still whole and moist.

Try them out and let me know what you think!!
