Fresh blueberries and luscious cream cheese are combined in these delicious blueberry cream cheese muffins, topped with a scrumptious chocolate crumble!
Growing up, and still to this day, Blueberry Muffins are one of my favorite breakfast menu items! I took this version of the classic muffin to a whole other level, possibly to a whole other menu!
These blueberry cream cheese muffins are so decadent, they could easily be mistaken for dessert (or if you are me, 3 nights last week, they actually were dessert!) Yeah, I just admitted that 😉
When I took these muffins out of the oven, the blueberry was bubbling out of the chocolate crumble topping and my mouth immediately began to water!
While I will always love my Bacon Maple Brown Sugar Muffins, they are now tied for first place with these delicious little treats!
Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins
These muffins are so easy to make in just under 30 minutes. They’re perfect for weekend brunching, but also quick and easy enough to make for breakfasts during the week!
Can you make muffins without the liners?
Yes, you can definitely make these blueberry cream cheese muffins without the liners. Instead of liners either spray a traditional aluminum muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray before adding the batter to the pan, or use what I use, stoneware muffin pans.
Do blueberry muffins need to be refrigerated?
Because of the cream cheese added to these muffins, I do recommend refrigerating any that you’re not going to eat within 1-2 hours of removing from the oven.
The muffins can be easily reheated in the microwave. Simply place the muffin on a damp paper towel in the microwave and set the timer for 30 seconds to warm up the leftover muffin and keep it moist.
These muffins are bursting with blueberry goodness and the chocolate crumble, well, it just takes them over-the-top!
Confession #173: I cut the first one open to take a picture and it looked so good I snatched it right off the little yellow plate and gobbled it up. But the real confession, I did it again a second time!
But don’t worry, I did save enough to play “Muffin Man” the next day and deliver these scrumptious little goodies to my esthetician Samantha and my neighboritas!
And yes, I did sing, “Do you know the muffin man, the muffin man, the muffin man? Do you know the muffin man, who lives in Drury Lane?” the whole time I was delivering them! 🙂
Except that I had no idea the last line of the song was Drury Lane, had to Google that portion of the song. I then googled “Where’s Drury Lane?” because of course, I want to find this mysterious Muffin Man!
Wikipedia: “The street Drury Lane is also where The Muffin Man lives as mentioned in the popular nursery rhyme. It is not known whether the song refers to Drury Lane in London or another town.”
Well that’s not very helpful Wiki! Oh well, I guess I’ll just keep pretending that I’m the Muffin Man and we’ll just change the lyrics to “who lives on Bond Girl Lane!”
