Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Aren't these lovely?  These are the best blueberry muffins I've ever had, although it probably helps that I used homegrown blueberries.  And the streusel, of course.  

Blueberry Streusel Muffins
Streusel:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teas. nutmeg
2 table. butter, melted

Muffins:
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 teas. salt
1 egg 
1 cup buttermilk
4 table. unsalted butter, melted
1 teas. vanilla
1 teas. lemon zest
1 cup blueberries

Streusel- Combine brown sugar, almonds, flour, and nutmeg.  Drizzle with the melted butter and mix.  
Preheat oven to 375 F.  Combine flour, brown sugar, soda and salt.  Whisk egg, buttermilk, butter, vanilla and zest.  Pour over dry and stir just until combined, then fold in the blueberries.  Pour into muffin tins and sprinkle streusel on top, bake for 16 minutes.  

I got 18 muffins out of this.
