blueberry muffins with cinnamon crumb topping

Luca and I are becoming adventures in our old age! This week we tried our hand at baking (once again!) and it was a success (see messy, blueberry baby pic at bottom 🙂 ). These Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon Crumb Topping are fast, simple, and tailored for the chef with two left pastry thumbs. Perfect for a special Sunday morning treat or snack, these muffins bring my favorite berry to the table.

Prepare the crumb topping by combining all the ingredients by hand in a bowl, leaving small chunks of butter. Top each muffin with a small sprinkle of crumb topping.

A small amount of cinnamon crumb topping is all you need to sweeten up these muffins!

These muffins were so simple that I almost forgot how much of a clueless baker I am! My family loved the sweet cinnamon and blueberry mix and I felt good about knowing they were baked with love 🙂
