If you can’t tell by all of the breakfast muffins on my blog, we really {really} like eating muffins.  I typically make them on Sunday mornings, so that I can indulge in one and send the rest to work with the Tall Boy for breakfast throughout the week.

The cream cheese in the batter keeps these muffins nice and moist, with just the right amount of fluffiness.  If you like blueberry muffins with just a hint of lemon flavor and a nutty-struesel top, these are for you!

For these muffins, I used Silk Unsweetened AlmondCoconut Blend.  And even though this is a sponsored post, I mean it when I say I love it.  Like really puffy-heart love it.  I’ve been using it for everything lately, including baking and other sweet treats like this Frozen Coconut Berry Pie and Blueberry Coconut Popsicles.

I’m predictable in my breakfast routine in that I eat a bowl of steel-cut oats nearly every weekday.  And historically, I’ve made my oats with water rather than milk {watching those calories, you know}, but for just 35 calories per 8-ounce serving, I’ve been using Silk to jazz up my mornings.  It makes my oats so much creamier and less boring.  Plus, since I’ve been trying to make better eating choices lately, I really love that Silk products are dairy-free and gluten free.

My kiddo loves it, too.

These delicious Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins bake up perfectly light and moist, and are topped with an almond struesel. Perfect for a weekend morning paired with a cup of coffee, or a quick grab and go breakfast.

This recipe makes 12 muffins, and the almond struesel on top is the perfect pairing with the AlmondCoconut Blend I used in the batter.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
