Out of nowhere the other day I started thinking about these little coffee crumb cakes I used to take to school for breakfast basically every day as a kid. There were three little bite sized crumb cakes in one little package and they were my absolute favorite!
I haven’t had them in years so I thought I’d create my own at home, adding blueberries and making them gluten free.
They were the best breakfast treat I’ve had since I created S’Mores Waffles!
Sweet, fresh, juicy blueberries peaking out of a buttery brown sugar crumble, it really doesn’t get much better!
I took a plate of these downstairs to my building manager and door man (just so I wouldn’t eat all dozen of them myself and of course because sharing is caring 😉 ) and they loved them! I went on my daily coffee run the next morning and when I came back in the front door, they were raving about them! Yay, I love sharing my creations with others and these muffins were the perfect time to do so!

- ¼ cup granulated sugar

Blueberry heaven!!! Yes, I am obsessed with blueberries! These “Blueberry Pastry Delights” might just be my favorite thing ever!!
They’re basically my favorite of the “super fruits” and I love, love, love their little bursts of flavor in these muffins!
If you’re looking for a delicious breakfast treat that you can share with co-workers, friends, family, employees of your condo building 😉 then these are perfect!
