Cinnamon Streusel muffins

Breakfast is always a struggle for me.  I get tired of eating the same old things every day and often look for ways to change things up.  As a homeschooling mom, I can’t do cereal.  My kids eat it, and in an hour they are begging me for lunch. So…we often end up eating muffins and bacon or sausage.

One thing I have learned….when you toss a little struesel on top of your muffins, they go from good to scrumptious in a flash!  These cinnamon streusel muffins were a hit!

Here is what you need:

For the Muffins

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  •  1 egg

For the Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon



Dump your muffin ingredients in a bowl and mix on medium speed.  Blend well.


Grease your muffin pan and fill about 2/3 full. This only made 9 muffins.

Sprinkle a generous amount on top of each muffin.

Gently remove and let cool.
