Coffee Blueberry Crumble Muffins

Homemade coffee muffins filled with fresh blueberries.

The best blueberry crumble muffins a coffee lover could ask for! Delicious coffee flavored blueberry crumb muffins generously topped with cinnamon crumble.

Blueberry muffins recipe from scratch is about as classic as classic can get. They also happen to be the only way I would eat a blueberry until my mid twenties. Don’t get me wrong blueberry pies, tarts, and smoothies are all fabulous, but a warm blueberry muffin with crumb topping is my comfort food. I’ll take two please with honey and warm butter on the side!

This muffin recipe is super easy! Basically mix the ingredients, scoop batter into muffin liners, top with crumble and extra blueberries. Slide those babies in the oven while you brew a cup of coffee. I store the uneaten ones in an air tight container to save for breakfast all week long. Simply grab a muffin, wrap in a paper towel, heat for about 15 seconds and whala…warm blueberry muffin to go.

Blueberry Coffee

Is there such a thing?! I’ve never tried blueberry infused coffee, but I would definitely love a cup. For now, I will just blend my favorite brew with fresh blueberries and make tasty treats:) If you happen to find a Blueberry Coffee brand let me know please!

Blueberry Muffins With Greek Yogurt

Plain Greek Yogurt helps to add moisture to your baked goods. It is lower in sugar than flavored yogurts and can be used a substitute for sour cream, butter, and oil. For this recipe I chose to use greek yogurt to help create a light fluffy texture to my easy blueberry muffins. The acidity in the yogurt reacts with the baking soda creating a “rise” in the batter.

Can you use frozen blueberries in muffins?

Yes, you can definitely use frozen berries in these blueberry streusel muffins. No need to thaw them, just follow recipe directions the same as you would with fresh blueberries. Blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries will be just as delicious!

How do you keep berries from sinking in batter?

The best way to prevent sinking fruit in your muffins is to lightly coat them with one or two tablespoons of the flour used in the recipe. Then as the last step before baking, gently fold your berries into the batter with a rubber spatula.

Tips for Making Coffee Blueberry Crumble Muffins

  • Use large or petal shaped muffin liners.
  • This is a thick batter, so you will have to push it off the spoon with your finger tip.
  • Mix wet ingredients with paddle attachment.
  • I made this blueberries muffins with oil for a soft texture. Feel free to swap out the olive oil for coconut oil or vegetable oil.
  • Slowly spoon in flour mixture while mixer is on medium speed.
  • Once incorporated turn off mixer.
  • Coat blueberries lightly with flour to keep them from sinking in the batter.
  • You can also make these coffee blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries!
  • Fold into batter with a spatula. Be generous with the blueberries, I add a bunch!
  • Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. If you have large liners, you may only fill 10-11 muffins.
  • Generously sprinkle crumble on top of batter.
  • Add 4-5 more blueberries on top 🙂
  • Bake until toothpick comes out clean or top of muffin springs back when lightly pressed with fingertip.

      Hey Kim, Its a subtle coffee flavor, not overpowering. It helps to enhance the other flavors in the muffin. But you can substitute for 3 Tbsp of your favorite tea, water, or milk.
