My favorite Blueberry Muffins recipe yields soft and moist muffins with a crumble topping that is bakery-quality. Enjoy them anytime or freeze for a quick breakfast on-the-go or snack.

This classic Blueberry Muffins is one of those staples that everyone needs in their recipe box. Classic recipes that you can always count on, and everyone loves. They take just a few minutes to whip together and they make the BEST, bakery-style, moist and delicious muffins. The delicious crumb topping really makes them next-level!

How to make Blueberry Muffins:

  • Combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. 
  • Add oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla and mix just until combined. Don’t over mix (the batter doesn’t need to be “smooth”).
  • Toss the blueberries in a spoonful of flour. This will help them not to sink to the bottom of the muffin. Gently fold blueberries into the batter.

  • Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. 
  • Make the crumb topping by adding all ingredients to a bowl. Use your fingers or a fork to work the butter into the mixture. 
  • Sprinkle crumb mixture over the tops of muffins in the pan.
Blueberry muffin batter added to a muffin pan, then crumble topping added on top of each muffin cup.
  • Bake for for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs. 
  • Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Freezing Instructions:

Allow the muffins to cool completely, then place them in a freezer bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw the frozen muffins, allow them to come to room temperature or place one muffin in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.

        They tasted so yummy!! They lasted about 20mins after cooling off before they were all gone. Blueberries went on sale just the other day, so I plan on making a couple of batches to freeze 🙂

    I made this Cake, it was awesome!!!. My whole family enjoyed very much after taking it. Thanks for this amazing recipe………
    Such cake i saw on CakenGifts.in

  5. I literally just baked these muffins like 15 minutes ago. Stupid me forget the crumb topping until they were almost done cooking but I just threw the topping on and the put the muffins back in the oven for a few minutes. Even with the messed up crumb topping they still tasted really good! My kids wanted mini muffins so I made the same recipe but put the batter in a mini muffin tin. They are simply adorable.

  6. I’m nearly a year late but I just found your blog. These muffins are amazing! By far the best blueberry muffin recipe I have found. My toddler asks for them often even going so far as to get his apron and telling me that we need to cook. I tend to share with my neighbor though because I could inhale 5 by myself. This is going to sound a bit crazy and perhaps OCD but I think what I love the most is that your serving amount is completely accurate. I’ve tried so many muffin recipes that claim to be 10 or 12 and I always have left over batter. I’ve made this recipe 6 times now and have always had exactly 10 muffins.

  7. I made the blueberry muffins last night…. and I can honestly the best recipe!!! My entire family devoured them. Thank you so much..

        Here we are 4 years after trying your recipe and it’s a family favorite! Thank you for sharing this with us!!!!

  8. These muffins are in the oven as we speak, but I’m tense that they will turn out right. I followed the recipe to a “T”, but it is very thick and sticky. It seems there isn’t enough liquid. Had to use frozen berries, but it was way too thick, I think. I will update after I have tasted the finished product!

    1. I should have clarified that the dough will be thick and sticky. Sounds like you’ve made it right to me! I’d love to hear how you liked them!

  9. The muffins look AH-mazing!!! I’m so glad that you came up and introduced yourself to some other St. Louis bloggers!!!
    I love having the connection! Your blog is absolutely fabulous too! XO!

    1. Thanks Jessica! It was so fun to meet you! We should totally have a bloggers lunch or something sometime–I’d love to get together with you guys!
