It’s Blueberry season and what better way to use them than in Blueberry Muffins! These huge Blueberry Muffins are to die for. Topped with a cinnamon crumb topping they are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast item. Not only are blueberries delicious but, they have a wide range of health benefits such as being a great source of Vitamin K and C, they’re high in fiber and low in calories. If you need somewhere to go pick blueberries, I highly recommend Bob’s Berries in Riverview. Bountiful blueberries are such a highlight of summer that some of us are prone to getting the blueberry blues during the rest of the year. For now, enjoy fresh blueberries in muffin form.

  4. In a separate bowl combine oil, milk and egg until well incorporated. Pour this into the flour mixture and mix until a batter is formed. Fold in the blueberries and lemon zest. Set this aside.

These bakes were easy and extra buttery, soft and moist. These extra-large muffins are bursting with plenty of blueberries, have soft and moist centers, and big muffin tops. These treats are perfect to share with family and friends and a great accompaniment to tea or coffee.
