To me, nothing makes for more of a wholesome, delicious school-day breakfast than freshly-baked muffins. These Blueberry Muffins with Oat-Pecan Streusel, a recipe I adapted from Southern Living, are a fresh take on the standard blueberry muffin recipe, as they couple the lively tartness of fresh blueberries with a crumbly streusel topping made with brown sugar, oats and pecans. Served as an easy, on-go-breakfast or as an after-school snack, these are sure to become your family’s new favorite muffin recipe!
