Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Jump to Recipe

Blueberry Streusel Muffins are a way of life in the Dalkin household. My mom used to make these for us as kids and she still whips them up regularly whenever my sister and I are both in town. These and the double chocolate chip muffins instantly transport me back to childhood and being a kid (the good old days when mom used to do my laundry - I miss those!) Anyways, let’s make muffins.

These couldn’t be easier and I am so pumped to be partnering with Capital One® to bring them into your kitchen! Capital One is about to make your life a little bit sweeter! If you tuned into my insta-stories last night, you’ll know that I just kicked off what is guaranteed to be an epic partnership! They have launched Savor℠, a new credit card that rewards customers 3% for dining purchases, 2% for grocery purchases and 1% for all other purchases - and for someone like me who goes out to eat and to the grocery store on a DAILY BASIS, it’s perfect.

Savor was created to help people come together to create memorable moments around food and seeing as how that’s exactly what we do here on What’s Gaby Cooking, well, you get the idea! In honor of the occasion I’m pulling this Blueberry Streusel Muffins out of my mom’s recipe box and onto the blog. You absolutely need it in your life. It’s the perfect treat to make at home with your kids, or bring into the office and share with your co-workers. Or just make them when you’re rolling solo and hide them in the freezer so you don’t have to share (NOT THAT I’M SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE).

Moral of the story - if you’re in the market for a new credit card, this one is kinda amazing. Plus you get a one-time $150 bonus once you spend $500 on purchases within the first 3 months from the account opening! Yes please. AND, you should probably make these muffins stat. They are everything.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 12 muffins


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • cup almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the streusel

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup butter cubed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Line muffin tin with muffin liners
  • Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • In a small bowl combine the vegetable oil, the egg and almond milk. Fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Once incorporated, fold in the blueberries.
  • Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with streusel topping mixture.
  • To Make Streusel Topping: Mix together the streusel ingredients and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until done.


I prefer using fresh blueberries, but frozen will work. To keep them from bleeding into the batter too much, they need to stay in the freezer until the last moment. Get your streusel ready, the pan ready, and have the batter ready for the berries. Stir them in just enough to incorporate, then immediately portion out, top, and bake.

    Great muffins! Will be my new GO TO blueberry muffin recipe. I cut strudel amount in half and used frozen blueberries. Thanks Gaby!

    These are, hands down, THE BEST blueberry muffins I've ever made. I was also a little nervous about how thick the batter was, but they turned out ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.
