Notes

  • Use pecans instead of walnuts if preferred, or leave nuts out completely if allergies are a concern.
  • Leave out the blueberries if you’d like, or use a different fruit such a strawberries, raspberries or even blackberries. For a Fall inspired dish you could try cranberries or small chopped apples or pears.
  • Store muffins in the fridge for up to 3 days.
