Spiced Blueberry Hazelnut Muffins With Streusel and Maple Glaze

  There is nothing better than a big, freshly baked muffin for breakfast.  Speaking of which, I had THE best blueberry muffin for breakfast the other day while grocery shopping.  I probably liked it so much cause it was basically like eating a cupcake for breakfast.  It was good, though I don’t usually like muffins being cupcake-y, but this one was OK.

I like the plain old blueberry muffins, they’re a classic!  But, I tend to not go with the original things when I bake, so I thought I’d spice it up some!

 I had this recipe planned out since last week, and I still managed to forget an ingredient while shopping… the blueberries.  Yes.  One of the MAIN ingredient for this recipe!  And here where I live, you can’t just go to the store and be back in a jiffy.  It’s 20 minutes there and 20 minutes back, so you better be going for a good reason!  But, I was saved!  I had a box of dried blueberries in my baking cabinet that I just bought a couple weeks back.  The muffins still turned out wonderful!  You can add frozen, fresh, or dried berries to this recipe and it will still turn out amazing tasting.

    Haha I always forget the main ingredient when I go grocery shopping, I happy there are others like me out there! These muffins look so good! I am really tempted to buy those large muffin pans like they have at stores! But that is dangerous.
