I just couldn't let blueberry season go by without making some blueberry muffins! I wanted to try a healthier muffin recipe and a quick search turned up this recipe for blueberry oatmeal muffins. I liked the sound of using the rolled oats in the muffins along with whole wheat flour and a mashed banana and some vanilla yogurt for some extra moisture and flavour. Of course I could not resist replacing some of the sugar with maple syrup. Next, I just had to work in some pecans and I though that a pecan streusel would be a good idea. I had to make one unexpected additional change to the recipe as I was out of vegetable oil and I replaced it with an equal amount of butter. The blueberry muffins turned out great! I don't even want to say how many I ate when they were fresh out of the oven. The muffins were super moist and had a really nice light and yet substantial texture and they full of flavour! The pecan streusel topping worked out surprisingly well. It stuck to the muffins and provided additional texture and flavour to every bite of muffiny goodness. These muffins are going to disappear way too quickly.
