Blueberry muffins with cinnamon crunchies!

Yes, I said cinnamon “crunchies”, which is probably not a word but it’s the best description for them! It’s cold in NY, like cold – cold and no, I don’t always feel like bundling up myself and my ever demanding 2 year old to go to the grocery store. This was an easy fix for a morning without oatmeal or cheerios. I even made the buttermilk myself by just adding a tablespoon of lemon juice to a cup of milk and letting it stand about 5-10 mins. See, who needs to go outside?!

To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together ½ cup sugar, ⅓ cup flour, ¼ cup butter, and 1½ teaspoons cinnamon. Hand mixing worked the best for me. I just dove in and crumbled it up with my fingers. Next sprinkle over muffins before baking.
