Ooo, blueberry muffins are sucha treat for breakfast. Have you tried it with olive oil as opposed to canola oil? We use olive oil for all oil in our house now.

I think you could easily substitute a light olive oil for the canola oil. By light I'm thinking American light, and not the Italian varieties with the stronger flavors. But even the stronger flavored virgin Italian olive oils would probably taste good in the muffins as it's such a small part of the recipe.

But the only real way to tell is to try it and report back.
