Blueberry-Pumpkin Muffins

Here in Virginia we get some of the most beautiful days from mid September to late October. The temperature have changed from hot to perfect, and it’s time for Fall colors, pumpkins and Halloween. And so we must have  a pumpkin recipe! I came across this recipe and at first I didn’t think blueberries and pumpkin would compliment each other, but they do, and the oat topping brings an extra layer of delish to these tender muffins. So if you like, give them a try and enjoy your Fall 🎃🍁
