Blueberry muffins bring me back to my summers when I was a kid. My dad was a carny. He owned a concessions stand selling soda and cigarettes (he used to stand me up on his booth when I was little and yell out “cold soda, cigarettes!” to lure the crowds in. A+ parenting haha). I would travel with him to each of the fairs he worked in New England and stay with him for the whole week while my mom worked. Every morning, we would go and get blueberry muffins at our friend’s stand and eat them before setting up for the day. He would ask for them to be heated up and we would put butter on them and eat them with a side of coffee (hot chocolate for me, of course). I had the best summers at the fair.. going on ride after ride, collecting change under the Zipper that fell out of riders’ pockets, visiting my “fair family” every morning.. My father sadly passed away when I was just 12 years old, but thankfully I still remember these moments like they happened yesterday.
Fast forward to now.. we are always on the lookout for new recipes to try around here, and I was on a mission to find a great recipe for blueberry muffins. When I found this recipe months ago, I knew I had to give them a try and they did not disappoint! The streusel topping seriously hits the ball out of the park and the greek yogurt adds amazing texture.
1 cup of flour
