Here is a healthier brownie recipe, that is still just as yummy. Who thought using olive oil instead of butter would be great? The brownies looked good and were fantastic. Of course they tasted a bit different, but in a good way. I got this recipe from the blog cookiemadness.com. The recipe is for a small pan so I doubled it, and used a 9x13-inch pan. I really recommend trying this brownie, because its different & delicious!

This is a great summer treat, because fresh blueberries are must for this recipe. blueberries are one of the healthiest fruit you can eat. After a little research I found out that blueberries have a role in reducing risks of some diseases, including inflammation and certain cancers. Isn't that enough of an excuse to eat a wonderful blueberry muffin (perhaps two?).
These muffins really are to die for. The have a crunchy topping with a moist interior, which is a great combination. Unfortunately the recipe for the topping wasn't correct with the amounts. I had to double the dry ingredients, in order to get the crumble effect. I had topping left over, so I just put it in the freezer (I will make these again!). To avoid this situation I would recommend halving the butter in the topping. Other than that a very good recipe from allrecipes.com!
To Die For Blueberry Muffins Recipe:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
