Inside: A quick and easy recipe for Blueberry Streusel Muffins; a great take on a classic muffin with a sweet, sugary top; perfect for weekday breakfasts.
You all know I love a quick and tasty baking recipe right? And Nova Scotia happens to be the world blueberry capital, so I feel inclined to bake with blueberries whenever I can. We were low on home baking this week, and I had exactly 30 minutes to whip up these muffins.
I was a little worried about them being too dense, but they turned out amazing and fluffy. In fact, I’d have to say they 100% rival bakery style blueberry muffins, especially with the crumbly, streusel topping!
I started pulling them together at about 4:30pm and they were warm out of the oven before Dan and P got home just after 5pm. You can easily adapt this recipe by adding other berries like raspberries or even cranberries.
Let me know if you make them! I’d love to hear how they turn out for you!
