Blueberry Oat Streusel Muffins...Or...The Best Muffins EVER

If you try no other recipes I ever try....try this one.  Serioulsy, these...are...so...good.  I've tried out blueberry muffins in the past from rather well known bakers, and I've always been just a little disappointed, but I ran across this recipe in a cookbook I checked out from the library called Light and Luscious by Oxmoor House.  They have obviously never been to a WW meeting becauses it's not light, BUT all this great lusciousness makes up for it! 
Here's the recipe...go make some....and send me a half dozen, thanks.
