Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon Crumb Topping

Blueberry Muffins

Summer brings lots of exciting family activities. One such activity we enjoy is Berry picking. Fresh berries have intense flavor and it is a fun snack. Blueberries and Strawberries are very predominant in the area we live. There are lot of desserts that use berries.

I always enjoy Blueberry muffins that I get from the stores, but worry about the fat and unwanted stuff in the muffins. This is a recipe that I came across the internet and it works great. The best part about this recipe is it takes only around 30 mins to make and is a great way to begin a weekend. We can use fresh or frozen blueberries.
