The Most Versatile Muffins!
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.
Not to mention, this recipe is SO versatile. You can swap out the blueberries for another fruit, and even change the yogurt flavor to compliment the fruit.
However you make them, you won’t be able to resist the crumble topping!!
How to Make Them
PREP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line one standard size muffin tin with paper liners, set aside.
BATTER. Beat together the wet ingredients in one bowl, and the dry ingredients in another. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients without over-mixing.
BERRIES. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently fold in the blueberries.
FILL. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each liner ¾ of the way full.
TOPPING. 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. Generously sprinkle tops with crumble, pressing it down into the batter.
BAKE. Place in the oven and bake for 22-24 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown in color. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Almond. I typically stick with vanilla extract in this recipe, however, we have made it with ½ tsp of almond extract in the batter and ¼ cup of sliced almonds in the topping and they were divine!
Fruit. 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.
Yogurt. If you change the fruit, make sure you pick up vanilla yogurt or something that pairs well with the fruit you’re using.
Making Ahead & Storing
You can make the batter ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a few days before folding in the blueberries and baking.
Once the muffins are baked, you can keep them STORED (completely cooled) in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container and keep them in the fridge for up to a week.
To FREEZE, place the muffins in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag or air-tight container and place in the freezer for up to 2 months. We typically let them thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat them before serving.
