Blueberry Streusel Muffins

These are the best blueberry muffins I have ever made. They are super moist, loaded with fresh blueberries and topped with a cinnamon streusel.

These muffins are quick and easy to make with no mixer needed. Best of all they take only 30 minutes start to finish!

The secret ingredient to make these muffins super moist and tender is sour cream. I tested these muffins with buttermilk and greek yogurt and found that sour cream gives the muffins the best consistency. Super moist on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins recipe

These muffins are tender, moist and fluffy with blueberries in every bite. I added tons of streusel to the top of each muffin (about 1 tablespoon each).

This recipe makes a total of 14 muffins. I bake my muffins in two batches using a 12 cup muffin pan.

I used only brown sugar in the muffins AND the streusel. Substituting brown sugar versus white sugar gives the muffins an extra crunch on the outside and a moist center.

How to make Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add flour, brown sugar, salt and baking powder to a large bowl. In a medium bowl add sour cream, vanilla, vegetable oil and egg. Whisk to combine. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Fold gently. Do not over mix. Fold in blueberries. Scoop batter into a muffin pan lined with baking cups. Fill almost all the way up. To make the streusel add butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon to a small bowl. Mix together until the streusel forms a crumb like texture similar to wet sand. Sprinkle each muffin with streusel. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until muffins are set. Stick a toothpick or knife in the center and make sure it comes out clean.

A couple tips for making the perfect muffin

  • Make sure not to over mix the batter. This will create a tough muffin.
  • Always allow the muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan before taking them out to cool completely on a wire rack.
