You can’t go wrong with a blueberry muffin. Whether paired with a fresh cup of coffee in the morning for breakfast or accompanied by a tall glass of milk for dessert, muffins are the perfect treat for any time of day.
You especially can’t go wrong with a blueberry muffin complete with a sweet, cinnamon-spiced streusel topping. This recipe combines the classic flavor of blueberries with all the sugary goodness of a crumb cake. Oh, and about the breakfast thing — we all know that eating a doughnut is better than skipping breakfast, so one of these muffins is obviously an acceptable alternative.
They’re even better, actually, since this recipe uses my all-time favorite white whole wheat flour. If you’ve tried any of my recipes before, you know that I take advantage of it in anything from pumpkin spice waffles to personal chocolate chip cookies. You’re getting your fiber for the day and a serving of fruit from the blueberries, right? Let’s pretend here, at least.
Either way, you will totally not regret whipping up a batch (or several) of these muffins. Just don’t forget the most crucial part — you gotta make sure you inhale every last crumb of streusel. Once you try it, I don’t think you’ll need convincing.
