Blueberry Muffin Recipe

These look SOO YUMMY! I should make a bunch of muffins and freeze them. I love muffins:)
Thank you to Simply a Silly Girl  for this post! I hope to try these out soon! (This post is all copied directly from the link on her site so those are not my comments in the orange!)

ingredients for muffins:

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour

1/3 cup white sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

what makes them extra-special:

a good 2 cups of blueberries 
(mine were big ripe berries we froze from this summer)

2 tbs flax seed
(for extra fiber and omega-3)

and of course the cinnamon-y sweet topping:

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup butter softened

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup brown sugar 

pre-heat your oven to 375. line your muffin tins... i use foil liners cause they hold up to the ooey-gooeyness of these muffins. mix flour, white and brown sugars, salt and baking powder. stir oil, eggs and milk until the lumps are gone. gently fold in blueberries. fill muffin tins, i like mine nice and full for a good muffin top.

for topping, mix flour, butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. sprinkle a little on top (or a lot).
bake for about 12 to 15 minutes if using small muffin tin (20 to 30 minutes for larger muffins).

the extra berries make these muffins almost like a tart. a little crunchy sweet muffin wrapped around a yummy blueberry filling... mmm...
