For the Streusel:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar if you want a deeper color, use a combination of granulated and light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter grated or cut into small cubes

For the Muffins:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F with the rack placed in the center of the oven. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.

Make the Streusel:

  • In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, flour and cinnamon with a fork. Drop in the butter, and using your fingers, a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the sugar mixture until you have crumbs. Set aside.

Make the Muffin Batter:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until combined. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, egg, buttermilk and vanilla. Add the buttermilk mixture into the flour and use a spatula to mix until just about halfway incorporated. Drop in the blueberries and mix a little bit more, just until the flour is incorporated – do not overmix the batter, you want it to be lumpy.
  • Distribute the batter into the prepared muffin pan and sprinkle with the streusel. Place in the oven and bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and place the muffins on a wire rack to cool before enjoying.
