Ingredients for Blueberry Muffins

  • Flour: The base of these muffins is all-purpose flour. If you’re gluten-free, a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend can be substituted.
  • Baking Powder: This is the leavening agent and it helps the muffins rise and become fluffy.
  • Sugar: Granulated white sugar is added for sweetness and texture.
  • Milk: Adds moisture and richness – it can be replaced wiht any dairy free alternative like almond milk.
  • Butter: Use melted unsalted butter for richness, flavor, and moisture. If you have salted butter, skip the salt in the recipe.
  • Egg: Binds the ingredients together and adds structure.
  • Almond Extract: This gives a lovely flavor that pairs beautifully with the blueberries. Replace it with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, or ½ tsp cinnamon.
  • Blueberries: Fresh or frozen blueberries work just fine in this recipe. If using frozen berries, they may discolor the batter a little bit – be sure not to thaw them first.

Streusel Topping: A delightful mix of flour, sugar, softened butter, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. It creates a sweet, crumbly topping that’s irresistible. For a nuttier flavor, you can add a bit of ground almonds or oats.
