Blueberry Power Muffins with Almond Streusel

This is a great blueberry muffin recipe that you don't have to feel guilty for enjoying! They call these call these "power" muffins because they're loaded with B vitamins from whole wheat flour, calcium from milk and yogurt, antioxidants from blueberries, and heart-friendly monounsaturated fat from almonds and canola oil. To enjoy that fresh out of the oven warm muffin experience each morning just microwave one on HIGH 15 to 20 seconds. **The printable recipe is now up**
