Saturday Morning Blueberry Muffins

In high school I got really into baking blueberry muffins. I was obsessed with making them for my friends and would bake batches using a mix my mom picked up from the store. While this recipe is a step up from that box mix, it’s still incredibly easy to mix up and will give you a nice treat to enjoy with a hot cup of coffee or tea on a cozy Saturday morning.

Six blueberry muffins laid on a cooling rack with brown parchment paper. The muffin at the top of the photo has been ripped in half to show the blueberries inside. All the muffins have a cinnamon sugar topping.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s totally customizable. You can easily make these muffins your own creation with just a few modifications! Firstly, if you’re not a fan of blueberries, swap them out for a different kind frozen or fresh berry, or even chocolate chips. Next, try adding different spices to your topping as well. The possibilities are endless! Most importantly, make them with lots of love and enjoy them with your favorite people. Whether that’s your family, friends, or just yourself.

Notes

Side note: I would check the muffins at around 25 minutes to see if they need the full 30 minutes. Times can vary by oven.
