Blueberry Streusel Muffins


It’s blueberry season!  So weird to say that in May.  It was also weird to pick them in tall bushes.  At home blueberries grow in low bushes, so you spend most of the time bent over.  This was so much more civilized :)

So we picked a few berries.  The strawberries were almost near the end of season, so we didn’t get many.  Plus I’ve got two of these boxes in the freezer.


What to do what to do?

So Rob picked first, blueberry streusel muffins and they are delish!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and put aside.
  3. Toss blueberries and 1 tbsp flour
  4. In stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla.

  6. Fold in blueberries.
  7. In separate bowl, cut butter into the flour, sugar and cinnamon until it’s like course oatmeal.

  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

These are super yummy and a perfect breakfast treat!
