Recipe: Award-Winning Blueberry Muffins with Crumb Topping

I would love to share with you my family’s favorite blueberry muffin recipe.  We make this often during blueberry season in July.  But, we do freeze some of the blueberries we picked so we can make this any time of the year.

This year, I submitted these muffins in a baking contest at a large fair in our area, and it won 2nd place!!

I made a few healthy modifications to this recipe at, and this is what I came up with to make the award-winning muffins:
