A good blueberry muffin recipe is something everyone should have on hand. They go perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast and make a great mid-afternoon snack. These are my favorite because they also include a crumb topping that makes them even more irresistible. I like them best fresh from the oven while they are still warm.

Here are a few reasons that make these the best blueberry muffins:

-the buttermilk that is used makes them tender and moist.

-the melted butter makes them buttery and full of flavor. I prefer it over oil and I think you will too!

-these are so full of blueberries that every bite is guaranteed one. That’s the way it should be, but I have definitely had my share of muffins with hardly any berries.

-the crumb topping takes them over the top. Everything is better with crumb topping and these muffins are no exception. It’s sweet, buttery, with just a touch of cinnamon- so delicious!

-baking them at a high temperature at first makes them rise high- just like a good bakery muffin. The temperature is then lowered so they can finish baking through without being raw in the middle. It’s an easy trick that gives them a fancy look.

You will love these blueberry crumb muffins because they are easy to make and taste amazing! The combination of juicy berries, buttery muffin, and sweet crumbly top is the best!
