Blueberry Crumb Muffins

It may not come as a surprise to you guys that I am a chocolate lover through and through. Chocolate of any kind is almost always in my sweet treats and baked goods! Buuuut there really is something about a blueberry muffin that just gets me! I even love blueberry muffin flavored things, like pop-tarts. There’s simply nothing better than the rich, buttery cake-like treat packed with juicy blueberries! I can guarantee these Blueberry Crumb Muffins will be a hit with kids, adults, blueberry lovers, chocolate lovers … pretty much everyone. They are just that freaking good!

These homemade muffins are on the healthier side too and are great for breakfast or brunch! They are perfectly soft and moist, bursting with fresh blueberry flavor, and complete with a sweet and crunchy crumb topping.

Ingredients needed for Blueberry Crumb Muffins…

These Blueberry Crumb Muffins call for pretty much all your classic muffin ingredients, but with my spin on it! The use of some healthy swaps like coconut sugar, applesauce, almond milk, and whole wheat pastry flour make these muffins just as delicious as the classic, but a little better for you. Its a win win!

  • Butter: Butter is used in both the blueberry muffins themselves and the crumb topping here! It adds the perfect moistness and that rich flavor we all know and love. You will need 3/4 cup of salted butter in total!
  • Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar is one of my favorite sweeteners to bake with! It is refined sugar free and adds a similar flavor to baked goods as brown sugar does. This recipe calls for 1 1/4 cup + a little extra!
  • Applesauce: I love to use applesauce in my treats for a little natural sweetness and extra moisture. Add 1/2 cup!
  • Eggs: These blueberry crumb muffins call for 2 eggs for moisture and binding.
  • Almond Milk: I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk in these muffins, but you can really use the milk of your choice here! You will need 1/4 cup.
  • Whole Wheat Pastry Flour: I love the use of whole wheat pastry flour in these muffins! It gives them a nutritional boost, but still makes for a soft & light baked good. This recipe calls for 2 cups in total.
  • Blueberries: You are of course going to need blueberries for these blueberry crumb muffins. 1 cup of fresh or frozen berries will work.
  • Vanilla Extract: 2 tsp of vanilla extract gives these muffins that classic flavor!
  • Baking Powder: Baking powder helps to bake these to perfection! 2 tsp is all you need.
  • Salt: Add 1/4 tsp of salt to these muffins to bring out the perfect sweetness!

And that is all you need for the perfect homemade blueberry muffins with sweet crumble topping!

Are Blueberry Crumb Muffins healthy?

I would consider these Blueberry Crumb Muffins to be on the healthy side! Yes, they are made with butter … but are also full of other healthy ingredient swaps that make for a much better-for-you baked good than your typical blueberry muffin.

First, whole wheat pastry flour is used instead of your classic all purpose flour. This adds a nutritional boost, but still makes a soft and light muffin. Coconut sugar is used in place of white sugar, which makes these muffins refined sugar free. To top it off, applesauce is used instead of extra butter or oil and almond milk is used instead of any heavier creams!

All in all these muffins are simple and light, but still pack the delicious punch of a classic blueberry muffin!

All things Crumble Topping…

Crumble topping! Who doesn’t love it? I know I do. A sweet, buttery, and crunchy crumble topping just elevates any baked good it is added to. And that is absolutely the case for these blueberry muffins! Truly the star of the show, if you will.

This crumble or streusel topping is super simple too! Just a combination of flour, butter, and sugar. Easy peasy and you’ll want to add it to everything from now on!
