So easy you can make these any morning of the week. Mix the streusel topping and refrigerate while you mix the muffin batter. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, whisk the sugar and eggs until thick and pale. Slowly whisk in the butter and oil until combined. Then add the buttermilk and vanilla. Pour wet into the dry add the blueberries and gently fold together just until combined.

Fill the muffin cups and evenly distribute the streusel amongst the muffins. I use the jumbo muffin liners to help maintain the muffin in the cup while baking. Bake, let cool at least 5 minutes.

    Thanks for the recipe, these muffins are so delicious, that even my picky daughter ate more than one! They are pretty easy to make and quickly turn into people’s favourites, I had guests over the other day, and they were pretty impressed by them too. Lemons and blueberries are becoming favourite food in our house.
