Why You should make this recipe
I have to admit though that we are muffin snobs in our house. We do not use boxed muffin mix in our house, blueberry muffins from scratch are the way to go, and honestly, they are not hard to make at all! It doesn’t even take much longer to make homemade blueberry muffins from scratch than it does to make blueberry muffins from a boxed mix.
We love bakery-style muffins and we love soft, tender muffins. These homemade blueberry muffins will remind you of those amazing muffins that you get from a bakery. Anytime I make these Blueberry Streusel Muffins they do not last long, so I find myself making double batches at a time!
Tips for making Blueberry Muffins with crumb topping
Gently stir the batter. When you are mixing the batter you don’t want to over stir.
Room temperature ingredients. Having room temperature milk, butter, and eggs when making muffins is going to give you perfectly fluffy muffins every time. When you use room temperature ingredients you get a smooth mixture that traps the air when mixing and then gives you fluffy muffins as they bake in the oven.
Fill the muffin liners appropriately. You do not want to overfill the muffin liners. Follow the directions for the specific muffin recipe, if the recipe doesn’t tell you how full stick to the 2/3 full rule.
Bake one tray at a time. Use the center of the oven rack and bake one tray of muffins at a time. This will give you the best homemade muffins results.

Can I make these into mini muffins?
Yes, you can totally make these into mini muffins, you will want to use a mini muffin tray and muffin liners and then cut the bake time in half.
Fresh or Frozen Blueberries?
You can make these blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries or fresh ones. Personally, I love them with fresh the most, but since I freeze blueberries a lot when I buy them in bulk or when we go blueberry picking when they are in season I also use frozen blueberries at times too.
How to Store Muffins
Allow the muffins to cool and then place them in a plastic zip close bag and store them at room temperature. You can also store them in an airtight container. To do so line an airtight container with paper towels. Then, place the muffins in one layer. Top the muffins with another set of paper towels and seal the lid. These muffins will keep for up to 3 days if they actually last that long in your house.
How to reheat blueberry muffins
Nothing is better than a warm muffin right out of the oven, especially these simple blueberry muffins but of course, they will eventually cool so you will need to reheat homemade muffins. These taste amazing even when they are room temperature but I love them warmed up. All you have to do is pop them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to heat the muffins and they will be as warm as when they came out of the oven!
How to Freeze Blueberry Muffins
These blueberry muffins from scratch are something I like to make when we are meal planning. They are always a hit with the kids for breakfast so they are one of the best recipes to keep in the freezer! You can easily double or triple the recipe when making these moist blueberry muffins. But I will give you a fair warning even doing that you will probably have to make them often because they won’t last long in the house!
Once you have baked your muffins, remove them from the muffin tin and allow them to cool completely. Place them in a single layer in a plastic freezer bag and lay flat in the freezer.
Blueberry muffins will last up to 6 months in the freezer.
How to defrost frozen muffins
Defrosting frozen muffins is easy and there are a few different ways that you can defrost muffins.
Defrost at room temperature. Remove muffins from the freezer and let them defrost at room temperature on the counter.
Defrost in the fridge. Remove muffins from the freezer and let them defrost in the fridge.
Defrost in the microwave. Remove muffins from the freezer and put them on a microwave-safe plate. Then heat them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds.
Blueberry Streusel Muffins Ingredients

- Baking powder
- Unsalted butter
- Vanilla extract
How to make Blueberry Streusel Muffins
Make the blueberry muffin crumble topping also known as streusel topping by mixing butter, sugar, and flour. Once made set the streusel topping aside.
Then mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.
Mix the butter and sugar till fluffy. I like using my stand mixer for this but if you don’t have one you can use a hand mixer or a whisk.
Add the rest wet ingredients in with the butter and sugar and mix well.
Add the Blueberries, be careful when you are adding them as you do not want to mush them into the muffin batter.
Put the blueberry muffin batter into muffin cups and top with the streusel topping.
Bake in the oven. Check to see if they are done cooking by using a toothpick.
Remove from oven and allow to cool and then enjoy!
