National Blueberry Muffin Day: Ultimate Blueberry Muffins with Oat Streusel

Ultimate Blueberry Muffin

These blueberry muffins get an upgrade from the addition of strawberry yogurt and a crumbly oat topping. Use fresh, sweet blueberries when in season, or substitute frozen berries for the fresh taste of summer any time of year. If you use frozen blueberries, do not thaw before use.

      Kathryn – You could use the strawberry Greek yogurt, but the flavor might by more “tangy.” A light strawberry yogurt is your best bet (that’s what we used), but if you use a Greek yogurt you might increase the vanilla to 11/4 teaspoons. Hope you enjoy the muffins!
