|softened butter||3/4 of a stick|
|brown sugar||1 cup|
|flour (I like King Arthur.)||1 1/2 cups|

These Cinnamon Blueberry Muffins are a family favorite. They are lightly sweet, filled with blueberries with a hint of cinnamon, and have a yummy crunchy sugary top. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or snacking.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Cream your butter, brown sugar, and egg until fluffy with your mixer.
- Add in the milk, cinnamon, and baking powder. Mix for about 30 seconds.
- Add in your flour. Mix only until just combined.
- Stir in your berries and nuts if you’re using them. Fresh or frozen both work great!
- I like to use a 1/4 cup cookie scoop to make perfect same sized muffins, but you don’t have too. Scoop the muffin batter into a lined muffin tin or silicone muffin cups.
- Sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of each muffin. Just a light sprinkle will do.
- Place the muffin tin into the hot oven.
- Bake for about 20 minutes. The tops will be a bit golden and will spring back when gently pressed with your finger.
- When done, remove from the oven and serve warm. I like mine with butter for a treat.
*Freeze some of the muffins for a quick breakfast on the go! Allow the muffins to freeze while sitting on a cookie sheet in the freezer. Then pop them into a freezer bag or container. When you need a quick breakfast, remove from the freezer and microwave for about 1 minute.
*Use fresh or frozen berries in these delicious muffins.
*Want to add a little crunch? Add some chopped nuts. I recommend walnuts. A half cup works great!
*Any milk works just fine in this. I frequently use coconut or almond milk.
*This recipe is great for mini muffins too. Just reduce the amount of cooking time. It will make about 48 mini muffins.
