Sadly, I’m not much of a morning person, so I’m not likely to make anything elaborate for breakfast. Every once in a while, however, I am inspired to bake a little something different we can enjoy for a morning treat.
My usual breakfast is a bowl of yogurt and granola. I’ve never been a cereal and milk fan, but I can get excited about a bowl of yogurt and granola. I decided to try incorporating that combination into a batch of muffins. That proved to be a very good idea.
The muffins themselves benefit in the moistness category by the addition of yogurt. Plus, the granola gives them a nice crunch plus some additional flavor. Of course, I can never resist a streusel topping. These muffins are topped off with a simple and sweet streusel that incorporates even more granola.
It probably goes without saying that the flavor of these muffins can change by using different kinds of granola. I used a granola made mostly of oats and almonds. Have fun experimenting with different varieties! And, be sure to pass along any especially good combinations.
Yield: 12 standard-sized muffins

*Most any granola will work. I used Bear Naked Vanilla Almond Whole Grain Granola. If you use a granola with dried fruit, I recommend picking out the fruit when making the streusel.
