Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin

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.Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogHere 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?

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!Skinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogSkinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogSkinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogSkinny Blueberry Streusel Muffin by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog

    I followed the instructions implicitly. The dough was too thick to pour into muffin tins a and it only made four small muffins. I took them out of the oven at 20 mins. To find them almost burnt;definitely not fluffy or light.

      I’m so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with this recipe. It is my goal to make sure that my instructions are clear and to-the-point so that everyone can enjoy healthy, low-cal options. I’m going to recreate this recipe for you step-by-step to see where the underlying issue is.

      That being said, I would like to point out that because this recipe makes only one blueberry muffin, it is not intended for individual muffins. That is likely why your muffins were burnt. By separating the dough into individual muffin tins, the cook time is almost cut in half. Also, it loses a lot of its moisture this way. If you doubled the recipe and then separated the dough, please ignore this comment.

      If you recreate this recipe before I get back to you and would like a thinner, creamier dough, I would add one tablespoon of coconut oil or butter into the batter or several additional tablespoons of milk.

      Hope this helps! Will get back to you soon.

    I also followed the recipe and thought their was no way I did it right..then I saw the comments and realized this is just for 1 muffin. Ok..so then I doubled the recipe and added coco oil and more milk..it still didn’t turn out right. Thanks for posting this, however it might be helpful to post a version that makes more than 1.

    Ok….I see two different recipes a skinny version and regular version, there arent directions for the the regular recipes. The I’ve that has almond milk

      Hey Kaitlin – the difference in the caloric count simply depends on how much coconut oil you are using. I recently posted a recipe for 6 blueberry muffins (in the comments), in which case you would refer to the same directions as listed above but simply add 5 – 10 minutes to your bake time.

      Does this help?

    What about the streusel part? Did I somehow miss those directions?

      Hey Kate,

      Thanks for asking! When I converted the recipe to Yummly, I somehow left that portion out. I’ve updated the recipe for you.
