Berry Cobbler Granola + {Blueberry Crumble Muffins}

I definitely have a weakness for muffins. Like I love them, in all flavors! Some have even called me "The Muffin Queen!" Some of my favorites are these brownie batter zucchini ones, these banana nut ones, these spice ones, and these pumpkin ones. The good news is, mine are healthy, er... health(ier) than most. I love squeezing in nutrtious superfoods where you least expect them (the entire premise of my upcoming cookbook!) and using less sugar and butter than traditional recipes. All without sacrificing flavor. Sound impossible? Well, it's not!

Introducing Blueberry Crumble Muffins:

There's just something so classic and comforting about warm blueberry muffins. And these are divine.

These homemade blueberry muffins are:

  • fluffy, yet moist
  • decadent, yet nutritious
  • filling, yet not heavy
  • sweet, yet not overpoweringly so
  • a delicious way to start the day
  • dairy-free

Say goodbye to boxes of muffin mix, and say hello to boxes of granola -- for the topping! The crunch of the granola paired with the sweetness of the dried fruit takes these muffins to the next level of extraordinary.

Your entire family will fall in love with them and beg you to make them weekend after weekend. Luckily, they're super easy to make!
