Start your morning off right with a good old cup of coffee and a couple warm Coffee Cake Blueberry Muffins. Fresh cinnamon berry muffins ready in 30 minutes.
This past weekend we spent camping in a walnut grove along the Merced River. It was absolutely amazing and so relaxing despite sleeping in a tent and having no phone charges or bathrooms. It was an unexpected "unplug" kind of weekend that really did my a lot of good. We fished together, played in the ice cold river together, and laughed until our stomachs hurt while playing board games.
Like most road trips, I always map out the U-Picks in the area. This particular place that we stayed at was not only a walnut orchard, but they also had a cherry orchard and a blueberry field. It was like a dream vacation! The boys fished and the girls and I picked! Needless to say, there will be quite a few cherry and berry recipes coming up as I need to use the 50+ pounds of fruit we picked!
These muffins are a combination of two of my favorite breakfasts- coffee cake and blueberry muffins. The blueberries burst while baking, spreading their delicious blue juice throughout the muffin. BTW, I think I deserve a LOL or gold medal for that description right there.
If you still here and reading after that, let's move on. Anyway, the combination of sweet blueberries and cinnamon streusel is perfect. These Coffee Cake Blueberry Muffins make for a great breakfast, snack, or even dessert. Try them with a scoop of ice cream...why not!? Enjoy my friends!
