Blackberry Streusel Topped Muffins by Tiffany

Well, I finally used up the last of my blackberries from last year. We are getting ready to do our yearly blackberry pickin’ trip to Southern Or. and just in time to! I always make sure to pick at least a years supply -so I’m able to get my blackberry fix all through the year without having to pay super market prices. These muffins make a yummy, quick, grab and go breakfast. I made sure to put a little lovin’ of sweetness on top too – just for you! Enjoy. 🙂


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon apple sauce
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries, frozen or fresh (I used frozen)

For Streusel

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick salted butter, room temp.
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. confection setting. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture, add egg, apple sauce and half and half. Mix together just until blended. Next, fold in blackberries. Scoop muffin mixture into paper lined muffin tin. Prepare streusel: In a medium sized bow, combine flour, sugars, cinnamon and butter with a pastry blender or fork until you get coarse like crumbs. Stir in sliced almonds if desired. Top each muffin with desired amount of streusel and bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Where do you go to pick blackberries? I know of lots of places in western Oregon, but is there a place in eastern Oregon close enough to Boise for a day trip?


Hi Susan! We go to Grants Pass Or. and pick on my parents 40 acres. Here's a link that I found that may help you finding a place in eastern Or. to pick your own blackberries. Have a great weekend!
