This recipe is scripture in the kitchen at my store - versitile, healthy, lightly sweet, very filling, and of course tasty. Here I've put the default version, Blueberry Walnut, but you can substitute the blueberries for any fruit your healthy heart desires, and the walnuts can be substituted for raisins, chocolate chips, dates, etc. etc.

Ideas:
Raspberry Chocolate-Chip
Blackberry Fig
Orange almond raisin
Apple ginger walnut

JUST. GO. WILD.

Try substituting the almonds for chocolate chips for a sweeter dessert muffin!

This muffin has a light airy texture, even with the granola! I love using a Cran-orange granola for extra flavors.

I just invented this recipe the other day when we had some extra squash to use - wow did they sell fast! They have a dense texture and strong squashy flavor, perfect with the oats and chocolate! Seriously, try these.

Wonder Muffin's exil twin! That same awesome bran flax base with a whole new set of fruits and veggies.

Heres a tip - if your pears are overripe you'll want to mash them. If you have firm crispy pears like Green Anjou or Bosc dice them up and add an extra 1/4 c. of milk.
