Ingredients for blueberry streusel muffins

The blueberry streusel muffins are made with 10 simple ingredients and are super forgiving so you can always tweak the recipe depending on what you have on hand. Here’s your shopping list.

  • Butter: Some people make muffins with oil, but we prefer the buttery, finger licking goodness of butter. It is a smidge more work to melt your butter than just using oil, but it’s worth it for the flavor! Melted butter will create a silky, tender crumb and keep your muffins perfectly moist!
  • Sugar: You’ll use sugar in two places for the best blueberry muffins ever: in the batter and on the tops. Sprinkle your muffins with some sugar (preferably coarse sugar) to create that iconic bakery style crunchy muffin top!
  • Eggs: 2 eggs keep these muffins fluffy and light without being too eggy!
  • Greek Yogurt AND Buttermilk: We’ve tested these muffins 10 times, and let me assure you that a combo of greek yogurt and buttermilk is absolutely necessary. A half and half mixture of the two provides the perfect amount of tang, moisture, and a little extra acidity to kick up the rise, and give you a big domed muffin top! You can substitute out the greek yogurt for sour cream if it’s all you have on hand!
  • Flour:  No fancy blends, or specialty flours needed here– just use your regular old AP flour. That being said, if you are gluten free, feel free to swap out for a gluten free blend! Or, if you want to health-ify these a bit you can use whole wheat flour instead!
  • Baking Powder:Baking powder is the only leavener you’ll need when it comes to muffins. Baking soda can leave a baking soda-y after taste and will give your muffins a totally different rise, so make sure you’re using powder! You’ll get a big, even rise and domed tops without too many holes! A Tablespoon can feel like a lot, but you’ll need it!
  • Blueberries: Duh. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in these muffins! We recommend tossing the blueberries in some additional flour to prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of your muffins.

Tips for big, beautiful blueberry streusel muffins

Ugh muffins. So delicious, so versatile, and so easy to make. The thing about muffins though is that a good muffin is GREAT, but a mediocre muffin is pretty bleh. So how do you get one of those big, fluffy, moist, bakery style blueberry streusel muffins?

We’ve rounded up all our tips for your perfect blueberry muffins:

  1. Use buttermilk AND greek yogurt: The combination of thick, creamy yogurt and tangy buttermilk will create the perfect rise and brightness in these blueberry muffins! If you don’t have greek yogurt on hand, I’ve also had success making these with plain yogurt.
  2. Don’t over mix the batter: Over mixing your batter can produce dense, dry muffins. To preserve that moist, tender crumb you’re looking for in a blueberry muffins recipe, fold the batter together until just combined!
  3. Bake at a higher temperature for 5 minutes and then lower it: Baking your muffins for a few minutes at a higher temperature will give the baking powder a little extra oompf so they get that nice, domed top and rise up. After 5 minutes, lower the heat so that the muffins don’t burn.

How to store blueberry streusel muffins

if you don’t eat your way through all these muffins in one sitting, they’ll keep well at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 2 days or in the refrigerator for a week! Make sure to let your muffins cool completely before storing them. If they are not completely cool condensation will form and can make your streusel soggy.

Can you freeze these blueberry muffins?

Heck yeah you can! Let the muffins cool completely before placing in a freezer safe, airtight plastic bag or container. Freeze for up to 3 months!

Happy baking, my friends!

Ingredients

for the blueberry muffins

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 6 Tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

for the streusel

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flours

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease 10 standard size muffin tins and line with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the streusel, using a fork or a pastry cutter to stir together until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the melted butter and granulated sugar, beating until combined. Add the eggs in one at a time. Add the greek yogurt, buttermilk and vanilla extract.
  4. Add 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until it begins to come together (not fully incorporated). Toss the blueberries with the additional two Tablespoons of flour. Fold the blueberries into the batter, mixing only until combined. Batter will be thick.
  5. Scoop batter into prepared muffin tins, filling about 3/4 of the way. You can use a lage cookie scoop or a 1/4 cup measure to keep things consistent.
  6. Sprinkle the the tops of each muffin with about 2 Tablespoons of the streusel mixture, pressing the streusel gently into the batter so it sticks.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes at 425°F, then turn oven down to 375°F and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until muffins are golden brown and spring back to the touch.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before eating!

Notes

  1. If you don’t have melted butter, you can sub out oil!
  2. Don’t have buttermilk on hand? Make a homemade substitution with just two ingredients!
  3. If you using frozen blueberries, do NOT over mix the batter. This will prevent any bleeding of the blueberry juices into your batter

  1. Love this recipe! Really easy and so delicious. However, for me it made 14 good-sized muffins rather than 10- not complaining, though! I also left them in the oven for slightly longer to get a nice golden crunch.

  2. These muffins are so beautiful. I really love blueberries! They do look like bakery muffins you can bake at home😋
