1 ½ cups of fresh or frozen blueberries

2 cups of flour, plus 3 tablespoons, divided

1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt

½ cup of unsalted, room temperature butter

2 eggs

1 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon of lemon extract

7 tablespoons of milk

1 tablespoon of lemon zest


¼ cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of flour

¼ cup of brown sugar

2 tablespoons of melted butter


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare the muffin pan by lining it with paper cups.

In a bowl combine sugar, flour, brown sugar and melted butter to create a crunchy streusel topping.

In another bowl gently coat the blueberries with 2 tbsp. of flour. This neat trick ensures that the blueberries won’t sink while baking!

In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. It’s the beginning of something beautiful.

Cream together butter and sugar in a bowl until fluffy. Then add eggs, lemon extract, milk and lemon zest to create a fragrant mixture.

Gradually incorporate the mixture into the blend. This is where the magic starts to take shape!

Carefully fold in the blueberries. Be gentle to preserve their goodness!

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups until they are two-thirds full.

Sprinkle each muffin with a touch of streusel mix. It’s like giving each muffin a cap!

It’s time to bake! Place these creations in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. They will turn golden. You’ll know they’re ready when a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow them to cool for some time. Good things come to those who wait!

Serve away. Savor the explosion of lemon and blueberry with every mouthful. Alternatively you can save them for later (that is, if you can manage to resist devouring them all!).


For those following a gluten-free diet you can make a simple substitution in this recipe. Opt for a gluten free flour blend that can be substituted in a 1:1 ratio. Popular brands, like Bobs Red Mill and King Arthur offer options for gluten flours that work wonderfully in baking.

If your chosen gluten free flour blend that doesn’t already include xanthan gum you might consider adding around half a teaspoon. This helps bind the ingredients replicating the role of gluten found in flour.

Remember to double check that all the other ingredients you use are certified as gluten-free. This includes items like baking powder and vanilla extract since some brands might have traces of gluten.

That’s all there is to it! With these adjustments even if you’re on a gluten-free diet you can indulge in delicious Blueberry Lemon Muffins. Happy baking!
