Dreamy Blueberry Muffins – Fluffy fresh blueberry muffins topped with a dreamy crumble! Ready to be eaten in just 35 minutes!
I’m not a blueberry-plain eater. I dunno, they seem a little bitter, a little funky tasting. But blueberries in delicious things like muffins? Yes please. Or pancakes. Or Waffles. Or just about any other breakfast-y thing. I’ll take it, gladly.
And speaking of blue things, I’ve seriously got the winter blues today. I’m sick of you Winter. You’ve served your Christmas purpose and now I’m getting a little tired of your slushy parking lots and your rock salt residue all over my car. I’m especially tired of your gloomy gray days. Did you know that I am a photographer, beach bum wannabe, and green grass addict? No, I didn’t think you would know that. If you did, you’d know that you really ought to take your cloudy days and move along.
The good news? I’ve a got a gray day pick-me-up sitting on my kitchen counter. Fluffy, perfectly Dreamy Blueberry Muffins. They may be blue, but they bring a bit of sunshine into my gloomy Tuesday mornings. One thing I love about muffins is that they’re fairly on-the-go-able. I don’t always have time in the morning to fix hot blueberry oatmeal or blueberry pancakes. But blueberry muffins? They’re waiting for me when I rush through the kitchen and they’re in my cup holder as I’m getting on the freeway to go wherever my day is taking me. The best part about these muffins? The crumble topping. Put a generous heaping of that crumble topping on those muffins before you bake them. When you’re stuffing it into your mouth on your way out the door, you’ll be glad you didn’t skimp on that.
