This weekend babe and I went camping for my birthday. We stopped by a blueberry farm to pick our own. To say we loaded up on sweet seasonal blueberries is an understatement. We picked an entire bucket full to bring home. So now I’m off to bake every type of blueberry good that ever existed. First up? Blueberry crumble muffins!
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and I stuffed plenty of them in these blueberry crumble top muffins. We picked an entire bucket for $10 at this farm in Larue, Texas. Justin and I had a blast wondering the rows of blueberry bushes and picking the biggest, juiciest berries we could spy. I also taste tested each bush before picking, but Justin didn’t feel the need to do the same. He had some issue with the berries not being washed yet, but really I was just working on building up my immune system. We’ve all been isolating so much lately with the pandemic. I didn’t want my immune system to weaken from lack of exposure, ya know? So I taste tested the blueberries like any responsible adult would.
Anyhow, along with a ton of fresh juicy blueberries, these blueberry crumble muffins combine flour, sugar, coconut oil, butter and cinnamon. Muffins are a great way to disguise a sweet treat as breakfast in my opinion. It’s like eating cake first thing in the morning! Especially with this blueberry muffin crumb topping.
I like to fill the muffin tin all the way to the top with batter before topping with crumble to make for an over-stuffed bite of deliciousness. If you’re a super hungry breakfast eater, I recommend using jumbo muffin tins. You can use them for three muffins rather than seven to nine normal sized ones. Either way, my pro tip of the day is to remove your blueberry crumble top muffins from the tin immediately from the oven and let them cool on a cooling rack. If you let them cool in the tin, they might be more difficult to remove. Try flipping the muffin tin upside down and tapping with a metal spoon until muffins become loose and fall to the counter.
Lastly, I have a few tips for you if you’d like to make these blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries. Be sure to rinse frozen blueberries and drain in a strainer. Pat them down with a paper towel a bit too, but be careful not to squish them. Also be advised that they may measure to one cup right out of the freezer, but if you re-measure after rinsing they may be less. I keep my frozen blueberries in the deep freezer so I think they were a little extra icy. Because of this, once I rinsed the ice off, they were about 3/4 cup and I needed to add more.
Either way, set a few blueberries aside to place atop the muffin crumb topping right before baking. These just add a pop of color to your muffin!
