If Starbucks can do their variation of a Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin (or is it coffee cake?), I can do it. That’s my new motto – do you like it? Starbucks makes a “Very Berry Coffee Cake” that is only 350 calories, which is extremely impressive for how giant the portion is. Now I’m not one to usually trust the caloric count on a fast-food/coffee chain menu, but what we do know is that this coffee cake is “around” 350 calories. Starbucks is probably a bit more trustworthy than other fast food restaurants when it comes to nutritional information. Heck, for all I know ALL Very Berry Coffee Cakes could be exactly 350 calories! Let’s hope so.Here are some awesome kitchen tools to use when making your Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin:
I love a hint of blue in every room. It’s secretly soothing, which only adds to my very yoga-esque attitude when baking. I am seriously addicted to this stunning flatware set. I wish I had a beach house to put it in. Also, can’t get enough of those serving trays! Absolutely perfect for the rustic, industrial flat. And have you seen that mug?
Wondering why I made a Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin instead of coffee cake? It’s berry simple. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I just happen to like muffins more. That’s all. There’s no calculated secret. I didn’t make the switch to save fat, use less blueberries, or avoid cream, sugar and butter. In fact, the recipe is extremely similar to that of a coffee cake with the exception of Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt makes this muffin super fluffy and moist, while sour cream makes a coffee cake more dense. It’s your preference, but today I made a blueberry streusel muffin for my own personal enjoyment!
