Big Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel

Blueberries are in season now and have been on sale every time I go shopping. Because I pick some up just about everyday, I’ve had plenty on hand for snacking and smoothies. This morning though, instead of a fresh fruit smoothie with blueberries, I had a real craving for a blueberry baked good. I thought about pancakes or waffles, but I really wanted blueberry muffins. I also wanted to make some really big muffins using my thoughtful gift from my sweet neighbor, a jumbo muffin tin. I added a little more egg to this recipe so these are more sturdy, yet still moist and flavorful. I topped them with a brown sugar and cinnamon streusel that really made them wonderful. More blueberry muffin photos and a step by step photo tutorial after the jump.

Here’s a step by step photo tutorial on how to make these big blueberry muffins with cinnamon streusel topping.

Big Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel

Start with Fresh Blueberries and Flour

Add 2 teaspoons all purpose flour to your 2 cups of fresh blueberries. This well help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffin.
