🥚 How to Make
Start by using a food processor to pulse your cinnamon toast crunch cereal. You want to make it into fine crumbs. This is going to be mixed in the batter. You will use some more cereal that is broken into larger pieces for streusel.
Now in a bowl you will add your flour, cereal crumbs, salt, and baking soda. Mix and set the dry ingredients to the side.
Now in a stand mixer add in your sugar, and eggs and mix until creamy. Then stir in your Greek yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
Now slowly add in your flour mixture in small increments, until mixed. Fold in your blueberries.
Pour the blueberry muffin batter into your greased and floured jumbo muffin tin.
To make your streusel you will mix up the cereal, flour, butter, sugar, and vanilla. Spread it on top of each muffin, do a heaping amount.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown. When the muffins are done, remove and allow them to cool on a wire cooling rack.
🍽️ Storing Muffins
I tend to store my muffins in the refrigerator. I find they store best as they will last longer. Place them in an airtight container once they are fully cooled.
You can also freeze the cinnamon toast crunch blueberry muffins if you want to save some back. Just place in a freezer bag or container and store for around 3 months.
Thaw by heating up in the microwave for a warm fresh out of the oven muffin warmth, or eat the muffin cold. Either way, these muffins are incredible.

🥳 Recipes FAQs
Blueberry muffins are one of the most popular muffins that are purchased and made at home! For good reason too. It is hard to resist!
Cupcakes tend to have more sugar than a muffin. Muffins are also slightly more dense in texture and tend to have fruit, nuts, and other fillings mixed in.
Overmixing muffins tends to leave you with a denser muffin. As you whip up the batter it creates air pockets in the batter. If you break down all the bubbles it gets dense and heavy. So go light on mixing.
Take a toothpick and stick in the center of the muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean with no wet batter, your muffins are done. Otherwise, allow the muffin to cook another minute or two, and recheck.
