Blueberry Crunch Muffins are a delicious twist on a brunch classic with the delicious addition of an oatmeal crumble topping.
Here’s a blueberry crunch twist on a real breakfast classic, the blueberry muffin. I have added a very crunchy oatmeal crumble baked right on top of the muffins for extra flavour and texture.
I get asked a lot about the rolled oats that I use in crumb toppings and in crumbles. One example is my favourite buttery delicious, old fashioned Apple Crumble recipe. I like them as unprocessed as possible so I almost always use plain large rolled oats.
More processed oatmeal like minute oats or quick oats, have a floury texture. That can have the effect of adding more flour to the mix. It potentially could upset the balance of dry ingredients to butter and ending up with a more dusty, less crunchy crumble.
The basic recipe makes amazingly moist and delicious plain blueberry muffins too, if you prefer not to add the crumble. A sprinkle of turbinado sugar on top of the batter before baking is great on the plain muffins too.

This blueberry crunch version is a delicious twist on a classic blueberry muffin, adding a buttery oatmeal streusel topping to the moist tender muffin base.
For the Muffins
- 2½ cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1¼ cups sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup melted butter
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup whipping cream
- ½ cup milk
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
For the oatmeal crumble topping
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¾ cups rolled oats, large
- 1 cup flour
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter, cut in small cubes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. grease 18 muffin tins well or line them with paper liners
- To prepare the muffin batter
- Sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.
- Mix together the melted butter and oil in a measuring cup with a spout.
- Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the mixer continues to whisk.
- Mix together the whipping cream, milk and cider vinegar.
- Add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.
- Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix. Don’t worry about small lumps in the batter, they are fine.
- When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, gently fold in the blueberries.
- Spoon batter into well greased or paper lined muffin tins, filling them almost to the top.
To prepare the oatmeal crumble topping
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, rolled oats and brown sugar.
- Using your hands, rub the butter thoroughly through the dry ingredients.
- Squeeze the crumble mixture together in small handfuls. It should hold together.
- Break off small pieces of the crumble about the size of the tip of your little finger and sprinkle them over the surface of the batter in the muffin tins.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 20-25 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
