These Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins are everything a muffin should be: jumbo, fluffy, moist and bursting with blueberries! The best part is they’re perfectly acceptable to eat for breakfast!

The greatest thing about these blueberry muffins (besides that they’re huge) is they’re easy to make and come together super quickly! I like to make all my muffins jumbo sized because when it comes to muffins the bigger the better but you can easily make these in a standard size muffin pan.

Ingredient Breakdown

Butter – melted butter adds both flavor and moisture! I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt later on.

Granulated & brown sugar – sweetens and tenderizes muffins. Either light or dark brown sugar will work.

Buttermilk – adds flavor, moisture and makes muffins super fluffy.

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor.

Blueberries – you can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen, do not thaw

How to Make Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk until smooth and well combined.

3. Fold dry ingredients into the wets until almost combined, leaving a few streaks of flour. The batter will be thick!

4. Toss blueberries with a tablespoon of flour then gently fold into batter until just combined. Do not over mix!

5. Evenly divide batter between muffin cups. If desired sprinkle with raw sugar and extra blueberries.

Pro Tips for Delicious Muffins

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate; baking is a science after all!
  • Don’t over mix your batter! This will cause too much gluten development and nobody likes rubbery muffins so leave a few streaks of flour before adding the blueberries.
  • Toss the blueberries with about a tablespoon of flour before adding them to your batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Sprinkle raw sugar on top to get that signature crunchy muffin top. You could also use sparkling sugar.
  • Fill your muffin cups 2/3 of the way full to get tall muffin tops. For a jumbo muffin pan I like to do 3 scoops of batter per muffin cup using this cookie scoop.
