Recipe from Isabel Eats
Servings 12 Muffins


Muffin Mix

  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/3 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Large Eggs

Streusel Topping

  • 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Unslated butter melted
  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • optional sweetened condensed milk for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a 12 cup muffin tin with lines or nonstick spray. You also need a baking sheet with parchment lined inside.

Streusel Topping - MUST BE DONE FIRST

  • In a medium bowl, add the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt. Whisk to avoid any lumps in the mixture.
  • Add the melted butter and whisk until well combined. Add the flour and mix until everything is moist.
  • Transfer streusel topping to baking sheet and spread it out. Topping will be chunky and have big and small pieces. Do this first so it has time to dry out before it bakes. Set aside.

Muffin Mix

  • In a large bowl, add flour, light brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. Whick until combined and there are no lumps.
  • In a medium bowl, add milk, yougurt and eggs. Whisk until combined and pour into dry ingredients. Once combined it should be a medium batter.
  • Pour batter into the muffin tins and top with streusel. There will be a bunch of streusel and its recommended to push into the batter to get as much into the muffin as possible. I was able to get it all into the muffins but it takes a bit.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rach before serving.
  • Optional, but highly recommended - drizzle sweetened condensed milk on the muffins before serving.
