How to make cinnamon streusel muffins

  • Make the streusel – Prepare your streusel by placing the flour, sugars and cinnamon into a shallow bowl and stir to combine. Add in the coconut oil and mix until crumbles form. Place the streusel in the refrigerator while you prepare the muffins.
  • For the cinnamon swirl – In a bowl, stir together the swirl ingredients and set them aside.
  • Make the muffins – In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients for the muffins. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients including the brown sugar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until no dry spots remain.
  • Assemble and bake – Preheat the oven to 400 F and prepare a muffin pan with 12 liners. Use a cookie scooper to scoop roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter into the bottom of the liners. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and cover with the remaining batter. Top with streusel and bake.
  • Top with glaze – Stir together the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the muffins before serving.
