Blueberry Streusel Muffins

This is a super easy way to dress up store bought muffin mix into crumbly topped treats!

My son Wyatt loves to help me make these muffin mixes that usually only cost about a dollar. It’s just a matter of mixing the dry mix with milk and baking. As tasty as these blueberry cheesecake muffins are on their own, I’ve found a super quick way to make them taste even better. I replace the milk with half and half (or cream if you find it in your fridge, which I never do), and add in some fresh berries. But what really puts these breakfast sweets over the top is the addition of a homemade streusel topping!

If you have a few staple ingredients and about half an hour, then you’ve got the makings for delicious morning muffins!

These blueberry cheesecake muffins happen to be my favorite. They just taste creamier and a little more homemade than the regular blueberry ones. But let's try to make them taste even more homemade. Shall we?

Now on to the muffin pan. I've had bad luck in the past using paper liners. Half of the muffin sticks to the liner when you unwrap them.

To safeguard against this, I spray all the cups with Baker's Joy.
