Watch our step by step video!
Seven years ago I found this recipe and it has been the only one we’ve made since. These resemble our favorite blueberry streusel muffin mix from Duncan Hines. The ones with the crumb topping and fresh homemade taste. I found myself buying a box or two of muffin mix every time I went grocery shopping, and that adds up over time. And as delicious as they were, I wanted something that used fresh blueberries instead of canned. So I started searching online and trying any and every blueberry recipe that looked similar until I found this one.
This blueberry streusel muffin recipe is better because they ARE homemade.
My darling friend, Sadee, who is just 10 years old made these to help her mom out for a baby shower they hosted in their home. They turned out amazing! I was even able to sample one while I was there. They kept telling everyone it was my recipe and I kept correcting everyone that it was from Allrecipes. Gotta love Allrecipes, it’s been my go-to recipe site for over a decade now. I love websites that include honest reviews and will never try a recipe on there without reading the reviews first.
Sometimes I use half whole wheat flour and they taste just as great. To make them even healthier, omit the streusel topping. My kids like them either way. We package any leftovers up for lunches throughout the week. It’s fun to add variety to the plain ol’ pb&j in their lunches.
