Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
makes 12 muffins
2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. organic sugar
1/4 c. Rapadura sugar
1 T. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. sea salt
3/4 c. organic milk
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 t. real vanilla
Combine 1/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour with 1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar and
1 t. cinnamon. Cut in 3 T. cold butter; we used our food processor. :) Set aside.
UPDATE: Some bakers have had trouble with the topping spilling over onto their muffin pans while baking...our suggestion is to reduce the streusel ingredients by 1/3 to 1/2 depending on your taste preferences. Please let us know how they turn out for you! ~Lisa & AnnaLynn
Preheat oven to 400F and grease muffin cups with coconut oil or line with paper baking cups. Measure and stir together the flour, sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg, then add the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until blended; don't over mix your muffin batter!
Fill prepared muffin cups about 2/3 each with batter. Top each muffin with about
1 tablespoon of streusel topping.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until lightly golden; check with a toothpick to be sure they're done. Cool slightly before removing muffins to a wire rack.
We would love to know if you give any of our muffin recipes a try. Let us know how they turn out or if you put a different spin on them. :)
This is the 43rd installment in what will be, Lord willing, our year-long muffin adventure: Muffin Mondays! 52 Mondays, 52 Muffins. There are 9 more to come, stay tuned!
Yes, if you count the Mondays still to come in 2011, you'll find there are only 8 remaining. Not that anyone out there besides us is counting... We're planning a mid-week edition of Muffin Monday sometime in November or December to make up for the first Monday of the year which we missed. Although I'm not perfect, I am a perfectionist. :) We're also planning something a little out of the ordinary to share with you before the year is done which we hope you'll enjoy.
And for those of you who've asked about our plans for 2012, at this point, we're undecided. AnnaLynn has definitely caught the baking bug and wants to continue doing something weekly, we simply haven't decided what that something will be. Feel free to share any ideas you may have. :)
