Can I be honest for a minute? I really am not a huge fan of Blueberry Muffins. They’re never something I buy in a store because most of them are just okay and not worth the calories. I’m kind of like that with store bought or bakery muffins in general, really. They’re too sweet or too dry or not flavorful enough; so I just reserve muffins for making at home. BUT…

Confession: I am ADDICTED to Starbucks Blueberry Muffins. Recently they change their distributor or something because I never used to like them, but now I do. They never used to appeal to me but now? Now every single time I step foot into a Starbucks they scream my name. LOUDLY.

Dorothy…Dorothy…we’re over here don’t you see us? Blueberry Streusel Muffins…we go so good with that Americano you’re drinking….Dorothy…don’t miss out there’s only one left!

Seriously, am I the only one that hears food talking to her? It happens everywhere I go. (Don’t get me started on the Entenmann’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.)

ANYWAY, when I was having company recently I wanted to make a killer muffin for breakfast. I have a few that I love on this blog, most stemming from my Lemon Crumb Muffins I made a few years back. They’re tender and soft, flavorful and they have the perfect texture. The secret to the perfect muffin, in my opinion, is using sour cream, baking soda and vinegar. The sour cream gives body and the baking soda and vinegar give a crumb that is unparalleled by baking powder.

With this basic muffin recipe, I’ve made chocolate chip muffins and cream cheese blueberry muffins.

For these blueberry muffins, I simply took out the cream cheese and POOF: I had me a Starbucks copycat blueberry muffins recipe on my hands.

Now…if you’re looking for a banana muffin recipe or a zucchini muffin recipe, don’t worry, I have those too. 🙂

Starbucks Copycat Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Everyone who tries one of these muffins raves about them. I mean, how could you not? They’re the perfect muffin AND they’re blueberry AND they have streusel. If you ask me, it ain’t a muffin without gorgeous streusel. Speaking of gorgeous streusel, look at the streusel on these lemon streusel muffins…WOW.

This is an easy streusel that comes together fast and easy. It’s crunchy and sweet and perfect with the blueberry. Now…if you’re not in the mood to make a crumbly streusel topping, you can leave it out…but that’s kind of anti-muffin, right? If you don’t believe me, ask Katrina. Without the amazing topping on her coffee shop banana streusel muffins, they would look so…plain and ordinary.

  1. These muffins look scrumptious! My kiddos will love them for sure!

  2. These muffins were/are amazing! They were so light and tender and wayyyyy better than anything you could ever buy at the store! I am not the best muffin recipe developer (they tend to overflow all over the place in my trials lol) and so the next time I need to make muffins for something, I am just going to use your recipe and not try to reinvent the wheel because these were PERFECT!

  3. Wow, they look just like them! These look great.

  4. The recipe says 5 tablespoons of MELTED butter for in the topping, yet video shows PIECES of butter . Which is correct ? Thank you 🙂

  5. Thank for your great blueberry muffin recipe.

  6. I WANT ONE NOW!!!! These pics look wonderful.

  7. Hahaha! You are not alone in hearing “food voices”! I hear them all the time 🙂 Love that streusel topping!!! Now I’m totally craving muffins!!

  8. 1st, can’t wait to try them, but just discovered – no sour cream! #@*?!!! Sorry you had to see that. Is there a substitute for sour cream? Suddenly curious.
    Your pictures have always been beautiful, and by that I mean drool-worthy! Can you say what type of camera you use?
    If so, I’d be interested, because I’m in the market if it’s not too expensive. If you have time to only answer one question, the sour cream sub would be the priority. Ha!

  9. Hi and thank you for your wonderful recipes! I have heard that some lemon (zest and juice) and cornmeal in the batter are ingredients in the Starbucks muffins.

  10. Instead of sour cream could I use Greek yogurt?

  11. Made these yesterday, they are delicious! Thank you for sharing. The vinegar threw me, I had never used that in baking, but your explanation made sense and from the taste of the muffins it works.. Now I need to try the other muffins, I hear them calling me..

  12. Made them today, only one word can describe these tasty treats…INCREDIBLE!!! Gave some to my three neighbors and they too were giving accolades! GREAT RECIPE, thanks ❤

  13. Perfect! I’ve made these twice within the last 2 weeks! I used fresh blueberries and they were Wonderful! This recipe is a family favorite! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Can I use dried blueberries?

  15. These are wonderful muffins!! If you are using large muffin cups cook an additional 10 min . I made these twice and that was always the case.

  16. Definitely the best homemade muffins I’ve ever had! Thank you so much for sharing!! I make mine a little bigger so it definitely takes about 27 minutes if you make a dozen

  17. Made these for my family and they were a huge hit! Delicious recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  18. Just for anyone who may follow the video she forgot to mention to add the salt. I almost missed it myself! They taste delicious will definitely make them again.

  19. The Starbucks muffins have honey in them, have you tried that instead of sugar?

  20. These muffins are amazing! Super delicius! Congratulations from Italy! 🙂

  21. I love these! This is an excellent muffin in every way. I have made 4 batches this month and will be making a lot more. No morelittle muffins for me.

  22. I was so excited to try this.  They weren’t good.  Although the topping sounded like it should be amazing.  Mainly butter and sugar… wasn’t.  Actually was weird.  I’m sad.  I’ll continue my hunt.  But good attempt

  23. I have made this recipe so many times, and it is wonderful, I JUST made it again, and they just melt in your mouth. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  24. These are soooooo good! I will be making them again for sure! I agree with some of the above statements that you don’t need so much butter for the topping. I was left with a pool of butter at the bottom of each muffin tin cup when I took out the muffins.

  25. These were excellent! A+!!!  
    I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and instead of the vegetable oil I used 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup melted butter.  They turned out PERFECTLY! Will definitely be making these again! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  26. These are the best, most moist muffins I’ve ever made! The texture is amazing. Thank you for this recipe.

  27. Made them as written. Everyone loved them.

  28. I made these in my muffin top pan, an excellent recipe, it’s true everyone loved them, they looked great too.

  29. Delicious, moist, tender. Live the crumbly topping. This was a big hit with my family. They came together beautifully. 

  30. Am eating one of these blueberry muffins right now !! Best ever !!

  31. I feel like I messed up somewhere because I have almost all of the topping leftover… haha but we shall see. They are in the oven now! Super excited for the end result!!

  32. really great recipe, everyone loves them and asks for the recipe!!

  33. Made these for mother’s day-Huge hit! Didn’t have time for the topping and they were still great-can’t imagine them with the topping-super yummy! Definitely a keeper! Thanks so much!

  34. Can you use canned blueberry?

  35. I love these muffins! When making the crumb mixture, I think the butter is supposed to be cold so it makes a course mixture.

  36. Just put the blueberry copycat in the oven, measuring 1/4 c per muffin I only got 15, with tons of crumb leftover?!  They look good, I’m sure my family will love them!

  37. I made raspberry and white chocolate muffins – they turned out fantastic. Just wondering can I use this batter for a victoria sandwich cake

  38. Oh my these are so moist and delicious. I never made muffins with sour cream or white vinegar, but it all melds wonderfully and you can’t tell that they were added. I also added cinnamon to the streusel mix. So good!

  39. I want to make these but the Starbucks muffins are literally called Blueberry Muffin with Yogurt and Honey. But I don’t see either one of those in the recipe. So if this is a “copycat” recipe, where would those go and how much?

  40. I made a gluten free version (I’m gluten intolerant) – I replaced the regular flour for King Arthur’s GF flour blend plus 1/3 C, of milk as GF flour absorbs moisture differently. Also added 1/4 tsp. baking powder for better rise. Otherwise made as the recipe is written. Beautiful, moist, tender with great balance! Sweet but not too sweet. Definitely a keeper! These are better than anything from a bakery, Starbuck’s included and just gorgeous!

  41. I have never had true muffin success until this recipe! They turned out PERFECT! The only tohing I found confusing was the directions say to use melted butter in the streusel and the video shows pieces, I used pieces and it was great! I also subbed plain nonfat Greek yogurt for the sour cream simply because I had it on hand. These are about as close to the Starbucks version as I could imagine! Plus they are less calories and way cheaper!

  42. I looked for an original recipe for blueberry muffins and found this one. They are delicious, soft, moisty, simply perfect.

    Thank you for this recipe and sorry for my horrible english, i`m from germany 🙂

  43. Although my raspberry and white choc muffins taste fantastic they seem to be overflowing like a extra growth so they don’t look fantastic any ideas on how to fix it
    – I don’t put the topping on either, they go so fast – thanks

  44. Are these mini muffins or regular sized?
