Blueberry Vanilla Muffins

These Blueberry Vanilla Muffins did not last long in my house the last time I made them. I love a crumb topping on ALL muffins, so I added a simple buttery cinnamon and sugar crust to these. Delicious for breakfast, brunch, or a treat! I love how blueberries burst when you bake them. It makes for such a pretty sight!

All you need is a couple bowls and some standard baking ingredients. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, fold in your blueberries and that’s it!

The blueberries I had on hand when I photographed were HUGE. Super juicy, sweet and delicious! If you have giant blueberries like these, make sure and let your muffins cool really well. Because the berries are wet when they burst, they need to settle after baking.

The crumb topping

The crumb topping is flour, sugar, butter, and cinnamon. I use a fork to crumble everything together. You could also use a pastry cutter if you prefer. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just melts down over the top of the muffins and creates a tasty cinnamon sugar crust, yum!

I used my go-to silicone muffin pan (no liners or spray needed)! I also let them cool almost completely in the pan before lifting them out due to the juicy blueberries!

These come together in just about 30 minutes so are perfect to make ANY day. I like to dab a little butter on while slightly warm. So good!

Look at the beautiful color! The blueberries have been so delicious lately. I’ll definitely be making these on the regular.

Hope you and your family love these Blueberry Vanilla Muffins as much as we do! If you love this bursting blueberry color, check out these Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes!

      Hi there! I have not personally tried it, but I’ve seen them used interchangeably in a lot of muffin recipes.
