I wanted to put a new spin on muffins, so I mixed in some granola. I brought a batch to work the next morning—success. The granola I used contained lots of nuts, pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut. —Megan Weiss, Menomonie, Wisconsin
My family and friends really enjoy fresh muffins. My berry-packed muffin flavor combo of almond extract and cardamon is just divine. And to top it off, the sweet lemon-cinnamon scented streusel is heavenly.—Shirley Riley, Water Valley, Mississippi
I created this recipe by trial and error. I've only had one outstanding bran muffin at a restaurant, and wanted to come up with a awesome one to make myself. These are moist, healthy, not too sweet and so tasty! Full of grains and fruits.—Nancy, Rens, Prescott, Arizona
Fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries bring eye-catching color and fruity taste to these moist muffins nicely spiced with cinnamon. They come together in no time and bake up in a snap.

Ardyce Piehl of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin relates, "These moist muffins are chock-full of blueberries. I keep frozen berries on hand-it's so convenient to be able to fold them frozen into the muffin batter."
This recipe was given to me some time ago, and I've used it often since. In fact, it's so good that it won first prize at a county fair! Blueberries are plentiful here in the Midwest, and this is a delicious way to prepare them.
These tender, easy-to-make muffins are loaded with juicy blueberries, and the crunchy topping has just the right hint of nutmeg flavor. We enjoy them warm with honey butter.

When most people think of Maine, they immediately think of lobster. But we who live here know of something equally as good: wild blueberries. Their flavor is unmatched, and they're especially great in muffins.
Meet the Cook: The sour cream makes these muffins so nice and light that you can serve them as a bread with a meal. But, here at our house, I've fixed them for everything from breakfast up to midnight snacks.
