  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats (aka old fashioned oats)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
For the muffins:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries My favorites are the tiny wild blueberries available at most larger grocery stores.
For the Glaze:
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners
  2. Make the crumb topping by combining the melted butter, sugar, flour, oatmeal and salt. Stir with a fork until crumbs form. Set aside.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium size bowl. Set aside.
  4. If using frozen blueberries, place them in a small bowl and return to freezer until ready to use. If using fresh berries, place in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter for 1 minute until soft and fluffy. Add sugar and continue to beat for 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time and beat just until incorporated. Add buttermilk, vanilla and lemon zest and mix on low until combined.
  6. Remove bowl from mixer. Add flour mixture and stir, by hand, until flour disappears. Do not over mix or muffins will be tough. Gently stir in blueberries.
  7. Divide mixture evenly in the prepared muffin pan. Sprinkle with the crumb topping.
  8. Bake at 350˚F for 22 to 25 minutes or until light golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack. Drizzle lightly with the lemon glaze.
  9. For lemon glaze, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice in a medium size bowl. Stir with a fork or whisk until smooth.
