Blueberry Muffins

Simple Clean and Homemade I Blueberry Muffin with Streusal Topping

It has finally happened. There are blueberries EVERYWHERE. Can I tell you how inexpensive blueberries are here? They are only like $4 a quart. So, being that they are my favorite food, we have to pack in as many blueberries as possible each summer. Yesterday I finally had an opportunity to relax a little. I knew my husband was eating a bizarre mixture of cereals at work that were left in our pantry before the move. I mean, it was seriously disgusting. I think there were cocoa krispies mixed with fruit loops and shredded wheat. Nasty. I asked him what he was eating for breakfast and he sort of said cereal. I think he knew how much work I have been doing lately and didn’t want to disrupt me.

What he didn’t know was that I can’t let blueberry season go by without overusing them. So, I asked him if he would like some muffins for the freezer. He was very excited. Yesterday afternoon I went out to one of my parents’ Amish friend’s houses and purchased two quarts of blue ray blueberries. If you are not familiar with blueberries, there are many varieties. I like blue ray because they are tart and not too sweet. Perfect for muffins.

The thing that makes these muffins so good are not just the cups of fresh blueberries, but the homemade jam swirl. Honestly, these take more time than plain muffins. You are making quick jam first. But the punch of sweet, tart blueberry flavor in each bite can’t be beat.

These muffins are fluffy, sweet, tart, with a slight taste of lemon. The streusel topping adds a little crunch and a touch of sweetness. These are a perfect way to use all the fresh. local blueberries you can find.

Ingredients (30 muffins)

    For the Blueberry Jam Swirl

    • 2 1/2 cups blueberries
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 teaspoon sugar

    For the Streusel Topping

    • 1 cup oats
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 4 tablespoons flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

    For the Muffin

    • 1 stick butter
    • 1/2 cup oil
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups plain, nonfat yogurt
    • 3 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1 3/4 cup sugar
    • 2 cups whole wheat flour
    • 3 cups white flour
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 5 teaspoons baking powder
    • zest of 1 lemon
    • 2 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
    • blueberry jam swirl
    • streusel topping

    Instructions

    Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Line muffin pans with paper liners. Set aside.

    For the Blueberry Jam Swirl

    In a medium sauce pan, add blueberries, sugar, and water. Cook for about 10 minutes until all of the berries have popped and the liquid has reduced by half. Set aside.

    For the Streusel Topping

    Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter until the butter is fully incorporated. It should look like wet sand.

    For the Muffin

    Melt the butter for 1 minute in the microwave. Allow to sit and cool for 2 minutes. Add the oil, milk, eggs, yogurt, vanilla, and sugar. Stir to make a homogenous mixture.

    Add flours, salt, lemon zest, and baking powder. Stir until all of the dry ingredients are moist. The batter may be slightly lumpy. Fold in the fresh blueberries. Drizzle in the blueberry jam. Using a knife, swirl it through the batter.

    Scoop the batter into the muffin tins and top with streusel topping. Spray the tops with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

    Bake at 425 for 18 to 22 minutes.
