These are what I call REALLY great muffins. Every time I go to get a coffee somewhere, I always crave a blueberry muffin. I have to say that they aren't as good as muffins you can make at home. Most of the times they don't have a streusel topping. A great muffin has got to have a streusel topping! What is a blueberry banana muffin without one? It's a pretty mediocre muffin.
What's so beautiful about this recipe is that it's all stirred by hand. No electric mixer is needed. Be sure to not overstir. It's quite alright if the batter is a little lumpy. Too much stirring will only get you tough muffins.
If you're looking for something really easy to have your kids bake for you (with adult supervision on the oven part), this is the recipe that they could make just for you! What mom wouldn't want to wake up tomorrow morning to a fresh batch of blueberry banana muffins with a little extra streusel topping.
I know I would! (subtle hints to my kids if they're reading this post today)
The muffins were scorching hot just out of the oven. I had to wait a few minutes to pull one apart to show you the juicy berries and how moist they were. These muffins are delicate, not too heavy and you could use butter instead of margarine for the streusel topping if you're not trying to make them vegan. This is my go-to muffin recipe that is so easy to put together and you can add whatever berry or even chocolate chips!
To all my mommy friends: Happy Mother's Day! You deserve a dozen muffins-enjoy your day.
