Streusel is a huge selling point for me in recipes. I love a little crunchy, sweet topping on my muffins and cakes. With a little blueberry here and streusel there, these Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins do not disappoint!
We are huge muffin fans in our house. I love them for an afternoon sweet, my husband and kids take them when they are headed out the door. It all works! Muffins are probably my “go to” sweet. It’s not quite cold enough for the heaviness of cakes and coffee. But we need a little something more than a cream pie or ice cream. So muffins it is!

Tips for Making Muffins:
Use liners in your muffin tin. This makes removal, storage, and transport easier! You can easily tuck muffins into a lunch box, arrange them on a pretty plate, or add them to a potluck line up if they are in wrappers.
Fill any existing muffin tin cups with water before baking. This is something my grandma taught me, and is one of my favorite kitchen hacks! It definitely helps your batter to bake more evenly.
Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes before removing them.
Fill your muffin cups about 3/4 full with batter. Don’t overfill them, or your tops won’t be even.
Toss your fruit in a little bit of flour to give it a coating before adding it to your batter. Did you know this keeps your fruit from sinking to the bottom of your batter?
