Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins – Perfect for Summer!

Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins

Imagine this – it’s a beautiful sunny Sunday morning in July and your wake up to the smell of fresh Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins downstairs. You head on down, pour a hot cup of coffee and dig in to one of the still hot muffins. Perfection! That is totally a daydream for me, because if I want muffins I will definitely be the one making them. That’s okay though, because these are completely worth it! These Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins combine fresh lemon, sweet blueberry and a fantastic streusel topping to create the perfect summer breakfast, snack, dessert or whatever!

Tips for making this recipe:

  • Take advantage of the fresh summer blueberries! I like to stock up when they are fresher (and cheaper) in the summer and store them in the freezer until I am ready to use them. Frozen blueberries will work fine in this recipe.
  • You can line the muffin tins with paper cups, silicone cups or even just grease the pans. Whatever works best for you is fine!
  • Don’t skimp on the streusel topping! This is what really makes these muffins special. That sweet, crispy, crumbly perfection will have you wanting more and more!
  • Stop mixing the batter as soon as it is well combined. Over mixing can lead to dense tough muffins.
  • Bake these muffins JUST until they are done. No one wants a dry muffin!
