Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Greetings my food friends!  On today’s menu are Blueberry Streusel Muffins.  I found this recipe back in college when I only had a couple of cookbooks.  Several years (eek!) and dozens upon dozens of cookbooks later, I’ve never made another blueberry muffin recipe.  That good.  Easy to make and delicious to eat, I was happy to have these for breakfast all week!

I coat my blueberries with flour so that they will not all sink to the bottom of the muffins.  Powdered sugar would work too.
