Huckleberry Nut Muffins

Huckleberries are a hot commodity in Montana.  If you want to buy some they can cost up to $65 per gallon.  Luckily for me my dad loves to pick them and he sent us back to Seattle with a whole container of em'.  We've been putting the berries on our cereal and vanilla yogurt but I wanted to bake something.  There's nothing better than huckleberry pies, cakes and muffins especially enjoyed warm out of the oven.  So I whipped together some muffins today and who are we kidding?  Homemade muffins are so worth the extra effort.  These muffins have always been a family favorite and they have a delicious walnut and brown sugar topping, too.  The huckleberries really shine in this recipe.  I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow.
