Learn how to make Starbucks blueberry muffins at home with this easy copycat recipe. It is light and fluffy with a streusel topping just like the real thing.

There are a few tips to make moist blueberry muffins, and I've formulated this recipe so it's light and fluffy. I talk about all of them in my Starbucks blueberry muffin recipe, so click over to learn more.

I added an extra egg to make these muffins moist. I also use both butter and oil. The butter makes them yummy, and the oil makes them moist.

These blueberry muffins freeze really well. Let them cool and then freeze them on a cookie sheet. Then place in a freezer bag and freeze up to 2 months. I like to use these reusable freezer bags for baked goods.

    Sounds yummy. I am looking forward to trying these! And 3 teaspoons is equal to 1 tablespoon, which is an easier measurement, especially for butter, since most butter wrappers have tablespoons marked on them.

      This is true, however butter wrappers are rarely aligned so that the measurements is correct. 😊
