Blueberry Muffins make one of my favorite muffin recipes to make for a quick, easy breakfast, brunch or snack. They are always delicious and one of the things I can depend on my family devouring.
Filled with blueberries, these blueberry muffins are a classic muffin recipe that is great to make regardless of the weather. My family loves them during cool weather as a warm, comforting recipe and then in warm weather they always seem to be one of those grab and go items as well.
They are perfect for busy school mornings to make ahead and warm up for a super quick breakfast on the go. But, the best thing about these blueberry muffins is how perfect they are on the weekends to wake your family with the smells of warm, fresh bright blueberry muffins baking in the kitchen. The smell is always amazing.
You’ll definitely want to make them again and again.
