Tips for Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Fresh blueberries are best choice but you can always use frozen blueberries or dehydrated blueberries if you need to. Thaw frozen blueberries in the refrigerator and drain thoroughly. Stir in dehydrated blueberries for chewy fruity bits, or blanch them in boiling sugar water first to plump them up.

Whether you use fresh blueberries or frozen berries, it’s important to toss them in a little flour before folding into the Blueberry Muffin batter. This light coating of flour keeps the blueberries from all sinking to the bottom of the muffin cup. You could sprinkle on a few extra fresh blueberries on top before the crumb topping too.

Make the crumb topping first so your batter doesn’t sit too long after combining wet ingredients and dry ingredients. Baking powder is the dry ingredient that makes your muffins light and fluffy. Its activated by moisture so you want to bake your muffin batter soon after everything is mixed.

These are best at room temperature and can be kept on the counter for a few days. To keep your Blueberry Muffins from getting soggy, store them in an airtight container lined with a paper towel. Place another paper towel over the top of the muffins, then the lid. This will absorb the moisture and keep them fresh.

These muffins are a great breakfast meal prep. Easily double the batch and freeze for later. Wrap them in foil before freezing for an easy breakfast meal prep and so they don’t stick together. Reheat from frozen in the foil at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

They are delicious served warm, or at room temperature, with a just a little bit of butter. Dust them with powdered sugar or with a side of Whipped Cream for an extra sweet brunch treat. And you can always serve warm muffins for dessert with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream!

VARIATIONS ON BLUEBERRY CRUMB MUFFINS

    • Berries: Instead of fresh blueberries, try cranberries, strawberries, or raspberries. You can also use apples or frozen peaches (thawed) chopped into small pieces in this recipe.
    • Brown Sugar: Substitute brown sugar in the crumb topping and for half the white sugar in the muffin batter to make these muffins even more moist. They will be slightly darker in color but just as tasty!
    • Topping: You can add ½ cup rolled oats to make a heartier streusel topping. Add white chocolate chips for a sweet, buttery topping.
    • Buttermilk: Use buttermilk or sour cream instead of whole milk in this muffin recipe for tangy, rich muffin.
    • Blueberry Crumb Loaf: Bake your muffin batter in a 9×5 inch loaf pan for 55-60 minutes at 350 degrees for a delicious blueberry quick bread instead of muffins.
    • Jumbo Blueberry Muffins: For jumbo bakery style Blueberry Crumb Muffins, bake the muffin batter in a 6 cup muffin tin for 30-35 minutes.

    1. If you use them, dust them in flour before adding so they don’t release too much liquid while baking. Enjoy!

  1. These blueberry muffins are perfect for breakfast. I can bake one batch and they would be good for several days. Such a nice way to start a day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This recipe looks amazing and I must compliment that photo of the 3 stacked on top of each other! Such a great shot!

  3. I’m currently making the muffins but in the topping, it’s calling for 1/3 tablespoon of flour….is this correct and if so, how do you measure it? Thank you!

  4. For the flour amount you say one third tablespoon of flour ????? In the crumble topping. Is this correct ??? This is for the blueberry muffins recipe

    1. The crumble topping only requires 1/3 cup of flour. The muffins require 2 cups of flour. I hope this clarifies it for you. Enjoy!

      1. So a tsp of flour for the topping?! I thought this was a typo so mine are in the oven with a 1/3 c flour. ?

        1. So sorry about that, clearly I needed more coffee before posting. It should be 1/3 cup for the topping. I’ve adjusted it so hopefully it sticks.

      2. i don’t understand 1/3 tablespoon flour. Do you actually mean one third of a tablespoon. Thats a very small amt, like a teaspoon.
