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
AT the end of the summer years ago, our family often gathered to pick wild blueberries. Mother canned them and saved them for special pie treats during the holidays. If there were any leftover she made them into these delicious blueberry muffins.
Everyone gets "the blues" now and then. To bring back smiles, I always prescribe delicious blueberries. My husband, Dave, and I grow the berries, and I often share our favorite recipes, such as this one, with customers at our roadside market.—Connie Sanders, Belle River, Prince Edward Island
These muffins are a recreation from a recipe passed down from my mother-in-law. I made the muffins lighter and used half whole wheat flour to add more fiber. They're a great nutritious way to start your day. —Virginia Sollitt
Yummy and golden, these muffins are packed with plenty of berries and are a great addition to a brunch menu. But at our house, muffins aren't relegated to mornings - we also enjoy them for supper or for snacks anytime.
