These Blueberry Muffins have a sweet and crunchy streusel crumb topping on top of each one, and they're packed with tons of blueberries. This is a great brunch or breakfast baked goods recipe.

Ingredients

For the muffins
All purpose flour 7 1/2 Ounce
Sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Zest of orange 1
For the streusel crumb topping
Grapeseed oil 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (or other neutral oil like canola, vegetable, etc)
Flour 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Egg 1 Large
Sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Milk 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Blueberries 2 Cup (32 tbs) (fresh or frozen)
Cold butter 6 Tablespoon , dice
Milk 2 Tablespoon

Directions

Getting Reday

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Making

In the meantime, make the streusel crumb topping. Whisk to combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon, then add the cold butter. Work all of the ingredients together with your fingertips, until it forms a bunch of crumbs and clumps. Add the milk and stir to distribute the liquid. Chill in the fridge until ready for use.

Back to the muffins: Whisk to combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and orange zest. Take 2 tablespoons of the mixture and toss it with the blueberries. This ensures that the blueberries don't fall to the bottom of the muffins.

Place the oil, egg, and milk in a bowl, and whisk to combine. Add that to the flour mixture, and stir until almost combined. 

Dump in the blueberries, and fold them in gently. Use a cookie scoop to portion them out into the muffin cups, and sprinkle the crumb topping all over the tops. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with no wet batter. 

Serving

Let them cool, and enjoy!
