blueberry maple oatmeal muffins w/ pecan streussel

Top of the muffin to ya! All the Seinfeld fans know that I'm not just being whitty when I say that, but quoting the wonderful Elaine Bennice. Pretty sure Elaine wouldn't have tried to give the bottoms of these muffins to the homeless - she would have eaten them right along with their tops! When I saw this recipe I thought they sounded good. Good enough to wake up earlier than normal and make them before I went to work yesterday (only food could get me out of bed before I absolutely HAD to)! This recipe is killer and I'm pretty sure I'll be making it for many breakfasts in the future.

*I'm definitely going to double the streussel next time I make these, just fyi*
