Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffins {The Mommy Games}

I sort of can’t believe this is my first sweet breakfast recipe that I’ve shared here. See, I love muffins and pastries, but since we have incredible bakeries (Magnolia, Boulud, Bouchon) a stone’s throw away, I generally just pick something up on my way out. NYC is a dangerous place to live like that. I can’t walk a block without passing multiple temptations, and given that I have about zero self control in that department, I almost always give in. But alas, the smell of freshly baked muffins lofting out of the oven is enough to have me shunning all my favorite treats. If only a candle could accomplish what a little baked good can.

When I saw piles of gorgeous blueberries (on sale at Whole Foods!), I just knew that muffins had to happen. And there is no better muffin than one with a serious crumb topping. It’s rather essential in my book. The streusel needs to hold together but not be overly crunchy. Just enough to add some texture and a little more sweetness. I also love the brightness the lemon gives these as well. It’s subtle, but takes an ordinary muffin to the next level. Make a batch and freeze any leftovers, making for quick and yummy weekday grabs. These are by far the tastiest muffins that have ever come out of my kitchen, and I know you and your family will love them.

    • The food options nearby make it way to easy to indulge all day long. I get a bit used to it and only really go crazy when we have company in – then it’s like an all you can eat fest!

  2. Can’t wait to try these – they sound absolutely delicious! And I am a BIG fan of crumb toppings!

  3. oh goodness these look good….do you tend to cook muffins and sweet baked breakfast things the night before (in general) or the morning of? My little ones, I fear, would never be so patient as to wait!

    • Thanks Rachel! I actually only ever do sweet breakfasts on Sunday mornings. Weekdays are hectic and Saturdays we are out running, but we don’t go to church until after 11, so we have more time on Sundays. Since my husband is home, he will often give the boys a small something (like fruit or cheerios) while I’m cooking, but they are often having so much fun playing with him that they don’t fuss for breakfast. I love freezing the leftovers though and using them throughout the week.
