What makes a great blueberry muffin? To me, it’s all about a fresh-tasting muffin, full of as many berries as the batter can possibly hold. I prefer to use a small amount of butter/oil in quick breads/muffin recipes, replacing most of it with Greek yogurt, which makes muffins lighter and moister and healthier. I also love simple recipes without complicated steps especially when we’re talking about breakfast (I do not want to spend a lot of time on making my breakfast!). These easy blueberry muffins meet all of these humble requirements!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this recipe! These muffins will be gone very fast, trust me: you’ll be having them for breakfast and dessert, and maybe even for lunch or brunch! These blueberry muffins are as perfect as muffins can be: moist and fruity, light and fluffy, rising and puffing up perfectly as they bake!

I want to remind you not to mix the batter too long, otherwise you will end up with dense, poorly risen muffins. If there are lumps in your batter – they will work themselves out during baking. Do not overmix is one of the most important rules when making most muffin recipes!!

These muffins are already great as they are, but a moderate amount of a crunchy streusel topping makes them only better even though you can safely skip it.

To make a perfect streusel crunchy topping, mix all ingredients (2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature) with the fork until the mixture has a nice coarse texture. Add more flour if necessary. The topping should have a texture of a coarse meal, on a dry side. Then, sprinkle the topping over the muffins.

Bake for about 20 minutes and check if muffins are done right around the 20 minute mark by inserting a toothpick in the center. Let them cool completely before removing from the muffin pan. Enjoy!

Easy blueberry muffins

Ingredients

    Muffins
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2% plain, Chobani Greek yogurt)
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons flour (for berries)
  • Topping
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour (or more)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

Instructions

    Muffins
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line muffin cups with muffin liners or grease muffin cups lightly.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a separate large bowl, add vegetable oil, 2 eggs, and Greek yogurt and whisk to combine.
  4. Add flour mixture from step 2 to the liquid mixture in step 3 and mix just enough to combine.
  5. In a separate medium size bowl (the one you used in step 2), combine blueberries with 2 tablespoons of flour. This is supposed to prevent berries from clumping together and sinking. Fold in the berries into the batter from step 4.
  6. To make the topping:
  7. Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter in a small bowl. Mix until you have crumb-like mixture.
  8. Fill muffin cups with the muffin batter about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the streusel topping over muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes in the oven.
