Kids' Fave Blueberry Muffins

I have been fortunate to nanny for many awesome families and there's a handful of things I can get every single child to eat all the time. This blueberry muffin recipe is a favorite of all kids (and grown ups too!). And it's so simple and kids love to make it with you. It's a win all around! 

Best Ever Blueberry Muffins

1/3 cup of milk
1 egg
1/3 cup sour cream (use more milk if you don't have this)
1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen) blueberries 

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of canola/vegetable oil 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional) 

2 medium mixing bowls
1 whisk
1 muffin tray, greased 
Ice cream scoop 

Optional topping:
3 tablespoons butter 
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar 
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
Mix all together until crumbly- put on top of filled muffin cups before baking. 

Preheat oven to 350. Grease your muffin tray.

In one bowl add your dry ingredients. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and both sugars. Mix well.

In the other bowl add your wet ingredients: egg, milk, canola oil, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Mix well.

Combine the two bowls and mix well. The mixture will be a thicker batter. At this point add the blueberries and mix in gently to try not to break them up too much. 

Pour into the muffin tray- fill the cups 3/4 full. Bake in the oven for 18-20 mins. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 mins before eating/serving. 

I like mine hot out of the oven with butter. Oh man- it's so good!! I also always put the optional topping when I'm making this at my restaurant- but kids don't need added sugar so when I'm nannying- I leave it off. 

Enjoy it! Pura vida!
