Best 5 Blueberry Muffin Recipes

When cold cereal and buttered toast just aren't cutting it for breakfast anymore, reach for a comforting morning treat: freshly baked blueberry muffins. The beauty of muffins is that just one baking session yields several days' worth of breakfasts — or any-time snacks — and they're endlessly pleasing to both kids and grownups alike. Check out Food Network's top-five easy-to-make blueberry muffin recipes below to find a mix of classic and dressed-up takes on this timeless pick from Ina, Giada, Alton and more Food Network chefs.

5. Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins — Ready to eat in less than 40 minutes, Ina's light, fluffy muffins are made with tangy sour cream, which she says "makes [them] really moist."

4. Blueberry Lemon Muffins — Fresh lemon zest adds a refreshing flavor and bright scent to these fuss-free beauties, best topped with sugar before baking.

3. Blueberry Buttermilk Corn Muffins — After making a classic corn muffin batter with rich, creamy buttermilk, Giada adds blueberries for a fruity surprise. She opts for berries that are frozen "so that way they stay intact when they're cooking in the muffins," she explains.

2. Blueberry Whole-Wheat Muffins — These better-for-you muffins start with whole-wheat flour and feature a combination of oil and low-fat sour cream, which adds to their tender texture. Finish them with sweetened oats for a crunchy topping.
