Blueberry Muffins With Streusel Crumb Topping

Breads and Muffins, Vera's Recipes

Unbelievable! I looked at all my posts again from my first blogging days and saw a very surprising fact for me. Among the 45 recipes that I posted until now, there is no recipe for muffins!

Streusel Crumbs Bluberry Muffins

“OMG, is that impossible” I thought to myself! Until a year ago, you could not imagine my kitchen without the smell of muffins. Since my cupcakes mania began with the blog Cupcakes Garden, every time when I got something out my cupcakes pan, the result was always cupcakes, not muffins!

“Hmm, maybe I could try chocolate frosting” I thought to myself one time. Another time it would be a variation with strawberries and white frosting and so on and so on. Little by little my (at one time adored) muffins became the past.

“It’s not fair” I thought to myself a few days ago and decided to make an apology to my dear old muffins. In the time when I made them often, on my repertoire were usually beautiful chocolate muffins, but since my blog is full of chocolate desserts, I decided to play around a little with some other flavors.

What do you say about Blueberry Muffins for breakfast tomorrow? I proposed to my husband.

“Hmmm a really good idea. You haven’t made them for years. I could really use a change in my menu” concluded Darko, who always made quick sandwiches while being in a hurry about something for work.

And so, late into the night, after a long, long time, the smell of Blueberry Muffins covered with beautiful streusel crumbs spread through the kitchen! And of course, my husband got up like a zombie, even though he went to sleep a long time before that.

“Hmmm, I’m so thirsty. And something smells here”, Darko was fooling around.

“There is nothing here for you! If you eat this, you will blame me for gaining weight again. Shouldn’t you be asleep”, I was a little rough around the edges.

“Well it’s OK, I guess one piece will not make such a big difference” he concluded while he was munching the sweet crumbs from the muffin.

Of course, you can imagine that the portion of Blueberry Muffins intended for breakfast was visibly smaller in a matter of minutes!

“I can’t wait to get up and try them” my husband was joking while going to bed again.

The only thing that maybe spoiled everything a little are my photos which this time were not on a high level, as was the level of taste of these beautiful Blueberry Muffins.

    1. These are the best Blueberry Muffins!!! They are so moist. Full of blueberries. I made the streusel top. So Good!!!!! I am so glad I found your recipe…and Thank you!!!!

    2. I found this recipe on Pinterest and I feel like often the original poster doesn’t get credit (if the pinned recipes are even ever used!). Well, I made these yesterday for a breakfast my fiancé and I hosted and they are SO good! The best blueberry muffins! And my new go-to recipe. Thank you!

    3. im making the muffins right now. The streusel topping is not crumbly..very wet. It seems like a half stick of butter would be sufficient. Did anyone else have that problem?

    4. Omg..these muffins are amazing…I didn’t have plain yogurt..but had blueberry and omg..just amazing..great recipe…have you ever used other fruits? Thanks for sharing!

    5. Such a wonderful recipe! Made these and they were a hit!! Was wondering if the recipe would work for lemon poppy seed muffins too? If so, how much lemon would you recommend?

  1. Hello! I made your blueberry muffins and yummo, they have become my family’s favourite. The only thing I did differently was making the batter without the berries. I wud add them after the batter was poured into the tins. The crumble on top is the clincher it totally makes the muffin! Thank you !

  2. Just made these since I had some fresh blueberries to use up. They were Amazing. Buttery, crunchy goodness. I didn’t have enough yogurt so I added sour cream to make a cup. The result was a soft textured muffin with a buttery crunchy topping. The flavor is good and the fresh berries make it fantastic. After trying many blueberry muffin recipes and not liking the dense texture this is the one for me. Love it, Thanks!

  3. Made these the other day….Speechless! This is my now go to recipe for muffins! They stayed SO MOIST for days! The froze well too! This is amazing! 5 stars all the way!

    1. These are by far the best blueberry muffins I’ve ever had. My friend made them for the fourth of July and I got the recipe on the spot. I made them the next day and had someone drive 30 minutes to my house just to get more. Since the fourth I’ve made them 6 more times and they just get better and better!!! THANK YOU!!

      @Connie – The streusel crumbles more when it’s dry, so try leaving it to sit a bit longer. You can also put it in the fridge so it hardens a bit then break it up with your fork.

      My only changes: use greek yogurt, put blueberries in the batter instead of on top.

  4. OMG. Made these tonight and had to keep the kids from sneaking extras! Wonderful recipe. This one’s a keeper for sure!

  5. I just had to write and thank you! These blueberry muffins are amazing!! The only thing I did different from the recipe was slip the sugar in half for the streusel..1/3 c granulated Sugar and 1/3 c brown sugar and add some sliced almonds.
    They are so good I’m not sure there will be any left for breakfast!

  6. These are in my oven now! The batter was good enough to lick the spoon! Subbed sour cream for yogurt just because that’s what I had on hand.

  7. Made these last night. I used 3/4c Greek yogurt with honey and 1/4c buttermilk since I didn’t have a whole cup of yogurt. I mixed in a few berries with the batter and added most of them on top of the batter. I got 10 beautiful jumbo muffins. The strussel topping was perfect and they baked up so nice! What a great recipe! This ones a keeper!

  8. These muffins are SO delicious! I added a little brown sugar to the crumb topping but other than that, stuck to the recipe. These must be the best blueberry muffins I have ever had and the only recipe I need to keep. Thank you for sharing!

  9. I don’t have any yogurt but have sour cream. Can I substitute for the yogurt? Seen others did but only for a little portion of the yogurt.

  10. These are delicious!! My daughter asked for muffins for breakfast. I made these and I will definitely be making them again!!! I only have a mini muffin tin and it made 48 mini muffins in case anyone else was wondering. Also, cooking them for about 12 minutes for mini muffins seemed just right 🙂 5 stars for sure!!

  11. I used greek yougurt. I also used an artificial sweetner (stevia) in the batter mix. I made 8 large muffins and several mini muffins. What a success! Everyone at worked loved them. Best of all they were nice and moist. I will definitely be using this recipe again.

  12. Hi..I followed this recipe to the T….,.but for some reason they did not rise..Even the streusel did not crumble. It was all stuck together…They did taste good though.
    Where did I go wrong? I live in Puerto Rico could it be humitity?

    1. Hi Carmen,
      I’m really sorry about that, I don’t know what went wrong if you followed the recipe, maybe it’s because some of the ingredients you used

    1. Hi Judy, I didn’t try to make them with dried blueberries but I think you can use them. It’s likely to be less juicy than with fresh or thawed blueberries but I believe they will still be delicious. Let me know if you try.
      happy baking 🙂

  13. Do you think blueberry yogurt would work? I bought a large multi-flavored pack of yogurt and my kids have eaten all of the strawberry and peach and are sticking their noses up at the blueberry. They love blueberry muffins though so I thought I’d try to incorporate the blueberry yogurt into the muffins. Thoughts?

  14. I just made these and actually used whole wheat flour because it was all I had and I’m impatient lol. They came out delicious and smelled amazing baking in the oven. The topping definitely makes it 🙂 I also had to make a few other adjustments but they are sooooo good 🙂

  15. P.S. The blueberry yogurt was a success!! The only change I made was to decrease the berries I put on top to about 1/3 cup. There was already so much berry goodness going on that I just put a few on top of each for looks. These muffins are amazing!! Thank you so much!

  16. These look amazing! One problem though.. I do not have any yogurt or sour cream 🙁 is there anything else I could try and use?

    1. Hi Marissa,you can use about 2/3 cup milk but, it might turns out dense or dry, because yogurt makes them realy moist and soft.

  17. I love Pinterest, but I always read through the comments to make sure people have actually MADE the recipes I am trying! Thank goodness I do- the raving is spot on!! I actually only had blueberry and strawberry flavored greek yogurts and had to mix the two to make a cups worth and the muffins still tasted AMAZING!! my crumble wasn’t too crumbly but I think that is because I used too much butter (damn the south in me). Super moist. Super delicious. I only had a cup of blueberries to use and each bite was still full of yumminess! THANK YOU!!!!!!

  18. This is my absolute Favorite Blueberry Muffins recipe. I Did substitute sour cream for the yogurt. They are so moist, packed full of blueberries, and the crumb topping…out of this world delish! Thank you so much for sharing! Yours is the only recipe I use now!

  19. I made these for my family’s Easter party yesterday (doubled the recipe) and they were a HUGE hit! Thanks for the great recipe–I’ll definitely be making them again.

  20. I am making these to take to work in the morning. My kids can’t wait to try them for breakfast! They smell amazing in the oven and the batter was delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  21. Made these late last night when I had a case of sleepiness. My teen boys loved these! It was a nice surprise for them before school.
    I did add 3 eggs instead of 2 due to thickness of batter. It seemed too thick so the extra egg was perfect. I did not add many berries on top. My muffin pans were too small for all the topping so broke out large ones. Just a note you will only get like 7-8 muffins if using texas size muffin pans. Will make these again! And by the way this was my first time baking home made muffins….winner recipe.

  22. Best blueberry muffin hands down… They are also pretty to look at… Thank you for this awesome recipe…

    1. I had the same problem with the streusel. I also forgot to turn the oven down it didn’t seem to make a difference. The muffin itself was perfect. They tasted great but the look left something to be desired.

  23. Just wanted to let you know that I made this the other night and they were amazing. I still have some blueberries left so I am making them again. To those who said the crumb top wasn’t crumbly, mine wasn’t really either. What I did was sort of sprinkle the topping as best I could. They still came out amazing! So yummy! Thanks

  24. Made these tonight and they were delicious! No problems here, even with my 2 yr. old helping. They came out super moist and I love the flavor added by the streusel topping! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! Just the muffin recipe I was looking for.

  25. Wow! The best muffins I have ever made. They were simple and absolutely delicious! They were light and fluffy and the streusel on top gave them the perfect amount of sweetness. I did substitute brown sugar for half of the granulated sugar in the topping but made the muffins per your recipe. I made them for a few of my friends and when I said they could have seconds they jumped out of their seats and ran for more! Just wanted to share how wonderful they are with you! Thank you!

  26. Fantastic. i used a thick & creamy organic vanilla yoghurt instead of plain and left out the Vanilla extract which I find can overpower the other flavours.

  27. This is the first time I have ever left a comment on anything that I’ve found on Pinterest. After making these delicious muffins, I felt compelled to rave about them to anyone that will listen! These are the best muffins I’ve ever made. I had to substitute the yogurt with low fat sour cream because I was out of yogurt. Thank you for this amazing recipe!

  28. Just made these and they were delicious! I followed the recipe to the T and they turned out perfect. The reason I prefer not to buy blueberry muffins from the store is because I always find them too dense and oily. These were just right.

    One reason many of you might be finding the streusel too wet is because you’re not making it in the beginning. Make the streusel before you do anything else and set it aside so the melted butter has time to solidify in your mixture. When you’ve made your batter and are ready to top it with the streusel, the streusel should have had enough time to cool. At this point you can run a fork through it to make it crumbly and proceed to top your muffins with it.

    These were very tasty. Thank you for posting the recipe. I will be making them again for my family.

  29. Just made these today. I made about 15 muffins but I followed everything to a tee and they looked and tasted amazing. Great recipe will for sure continue to use this in my future. And they made the house smell so nice!

  30. So happy I found this recipe have made these a few times and not only does my family love them but my hubby’s coworkers. I did blueberry yogurt and I did let the streusal sit out it hardens it. This is definitely a family keeper for us! Thanks☺

  31. Omg is right! This is going to be my go to recipe for blueberry muffins for sure….I only had 3/4 cup of sour cream and no yogurt and they still came out moist and delicious…..I only used 1 cup of fresh blueberries in the batter but will use two next time….I wanted enough room on top for the scrumptious Strusel…..Thank you so much for this winner of a recipe…..

  32. Omg is right…..absolutely scrumptious. Didn’t have yogurt, had 3/4 cup of sour cream and it still worked. Put the blueberries directly in the batter. Wanted as much Strusel as possible on top. And my Strusel was not too wet. I used a pinching motion after incorporating the butter and it was crumbly enough. I don’t know why I only put in one cup of blueberries but next time will maybe use one and a half or two. Thank you for this winner of a a recipe.

  33. I found this recipe on Pinterest awhile ago and it’s my go-to blueberry muffin recipe. I’ve made these muffins many times and they’re a huge hit every time! They’re my favorite blueberry muffin I’ve had and will continue to use this recipe for years because there’s no reason to go looking for a different recipe. I love how moist they turn out and they’re packed with blueberries. The crunchy streusel topping is just wonderful. Thank you for sharing your recipe with the world! It’s truly a delicious one!

  34. Hi Vera! I recently made these muffins and they were a huge hit with my three boys! I have tried so many blueberry muffin recipes, but these are by far the best ones that I have ever baked. This is my go-to recipe now. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
