Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins


I could eat muffins almost everyday for breakfast. I love all kinds, but in the fall I love to eat apple cinnamon streusel muffins. These yummy muffins are great in the fall (or any other season as well). Apple and cinnamon were made for each other. Is it only me who loves this flavor combination? Any who, let’s get baking.


Muffins with streusel toppings are especially yummy. Don’t you agree? the oats, cinnamon and more mix together to make the streusel perfect.


The apples mixed with the yogurt give these muffins a moist texture. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert. I got the apples from a friend’s tree and they are superb. No matter where you get the apples, they will taste amazing in this muffin recipe.
