Jumbo Lemon Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Jump to Recipe

These Jumbo Lemon Blueberry Crumb Muffins don’t need an explanation. They speak for themselves with how delicious they look. They are made with fresh blueberries, lemon zest/lemon juice, and a subtle crumb topping. They only take 35 minutes to make!


A few tips for making this recipe:

  • Make the crumb topping first so that it can chill in the fridge while you are making the batter. The more firm the crumb, the better.
  • The secret ingredient to moist muffins: GREEK YOGURT (or sour cream if you don’t have yogurt)
  • I used fresh blueberries for the recipe, but frozen fruit will work ok too.
