Crumb Top Blueberry Muffins

Crumb Top Blueberry MuffinBreakfast used to be my least favorite meal of the day. Soggy cereal and tough eggs just never did it for me. Then I discovered more grown up breakfasts. Greek yogurt with peaches and granola. Fried egg sandwiches on a multigrain bagel with sharp cheddar cheese. Banana walnut waffles with maple syrup. So many options!

Crumb Top Blueberry MuffinThese muffins are part of my adult breakfast adventures. They are my go-to blueberry muffin with a crumbly cafe-style topping. If you don’t feel like going to the work of making the topping they can absolutely be eaten plain or with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. Don’t let my new-found discovery of these muffins fool you into thinking they’re only for adults, my two year old will eat two of them for breakfast.

Do you have a favorite breakfast item, or are you in need of more ideas?

For the muffins:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.

Whisk dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry with a few light strokes, just until moistened. Fold in the blueberries. Divide among muffin cups.

In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over muffin batter.
