Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon-Crumb Topping


Last weekend, my kids went blueberry picking at Petals from the Past while I was in Park City at EVO. When I got off the plane (at almost midnight), I came home to a refrigerator full of fresh blackberries, blueberries and Chilton County peaches. I was so excited to have the freshness of summer at my fingertips after a long day of traveling. My daughter, Leigh, and I made blueberry muffins the next day and chose to make some with Greek yogurt (I love Fage) and a cinnamon crumb topping. Needless to say, 2 days later, they are all gone.

1 dozen muffins or 24 mini muffins

  1. We actually went peach picking at Culp fruits, but they wouldn’t let us pick them because of some festival. But, we bought some, and they were incredible. Sometimes, it is surprising what fresh fruit you can get right around the corner.

  2. Thank you for this recipe! I just bought some blueberries at our local farmer’s market and was planning on making some muffins with them this week. I’m going to try this recipe instead of the one I had planned.

  3. Alison, We made these last night and now they are gone. Awesome recipe. Wanted to ask why you use greek yogurt in some of your baking recipes? Are you reducing oil/butter by adding it in or does it make the food more moist?
