I think I may have mentioned it a few posts back, but I’m slowly starting to breathe new life into some of the old post here on LMS. I’ve been re-testing recipes and re-photographing them so that they’re at the top of their game just for you! These blueberry crumble muffins are ones we’ve made several times over the past years, and they’re always a hit!

They can be made with fresh or frozen blueberries which is always nice! That means you can bake up a fresh batch of these in the middle of winter and still enjoy the bounty of summer!

I typically stick with vanilla extract in this recipe, however, we have made it with 1/2 tsp. of almond extract in the batter and 1/4 cup of sliced almonds in the topping and they were divine! You can also swap out the blueberries for any fruit (peaches, blackberries, raspberries etc) if you don’t have them on hand or just feel like something different. This recipe is SO versatile. Just make sure you pick up vanilla yogurt or something that pairs well with the fruit you’re using.

While I absolutely love these bakery style blueberry muffins, it’s hard to resist the crumb topping on these lovely muffins! You don’t need a pastry blender or any fancy tool to make it. Just melt the butter and mix it in along with all of the other ingredients. You can use your hands to press everything together, which will help form nice chunks of topping.

Fill the liners up nice and full and bake the muffins until they’re golden brown on top, about 22 minutes. Let them cool for a good 15 minutes or so, then slather them with butter and enjoy!!
