One thing my family absolutely loves is muffins! Whether it’s for a special breakfast, a snack or camping, they are always excited when they see muffins coming out of the oven. This recipe is one of our favorites. I put frozen huckleberries in it but you could switch it up with nuts, chocolate chips, or any flavor of berry. Here is the recipe:
Huckleberry Muffins with Streusel Topping
3 cups Flour
1 ½ cups Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
4 tsp. Baking Powder

2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs or 5 Tbsp. Whole Egg mixed with 5 Tbsp. water
2/3 cup milk or 4 ½ Tbsp. Powdered Milk mixed with 2/3 c. water
Mix all together.
