Blueberry Muffin Recipe
Start preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. You will want a rack in the middle of the oven. Now in a large bowl, add 3 cups of all purpose flour, 1 + 1/2 cups of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 4 teaspoons of baking powder. Stir with a spoon to mix.

Now in a 2 cup glass measuring cup add 2/3 cups vegetable (or canola) oil and 2 large eggs. Now add cold water until your reach the 2 cup line. Pour into your flour mixture.
Use a mixer, whisk, beater, or spoon (we use my convenient kitchen aid mixer) to mix together all ingredients until combined.
Now add in 3-4 cups blueberries. Use fresh, store bought, or frozen.
HINT: We get these amazingly flavorful tiny blueberries at Costco in the frozen isle and I highly recommend them!
Mix until combined. The more you mix, the more the homemade blueberry mix will turn blue from the color of the blueberries.
Make sure muffin tins have been filled with muffin wrappers, paper liners – my kids love helping with that part. Now using a spoon or measuring cup, fill muffin wrappers 1/2 to 2/3rds full of blueberry batter. We used 2 pans that each hold a dozen.
Homemade Blueberry Muffins
Now it’s time to quickly whip up the AMAZING streusal topping. Seriously, don’t skip this part because this really finishes off the world’s best blueberry muffins. TRUST ME!
In a medium bowl put 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup quick cook oats, 1 cup brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Stir with spoon. Now cut in with a pastry blender or 2 knives 1 stick of butter (that is 1/2 cup). We use organic salted butter, but use whatever you have on hand and prefer. Keep moxing until butter is small and well blended, less than the size of a pea.
Now sprinkle the mixture on top of each batter of our easy muffins recipes. There is a lot of topping so be generous and cover it so there is no batter showing.
Put them in the oven in the middle rack for 22 minutes (it can range from 20-25 minutes depending on your oven and altitude – they won’t move when you shake the pan, and will be set on the top.)
Allow muffins to cool for 2-5 minutes in the pan and pop out (I use a fork) and enjoy them warm!
This recipe works with any number of fruit! Substitute the blueberries for any berries, 4-5 smashed bananas, 2 cups of diced dried fruit – apples / pineapple / mango, etc. See what I mean about this being the best muffin recipe ever?!
