Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

What is fall without Cinnamon Streusel muffins?  Well it's a sad sad place and I don't want to be there. So to keep your fall happy and cheerful try these Cinnamon Streusel muffins.


Cinnamon and fall go hand in hand.  It never fails this time of year I start baking apple, pumpkin and cinnamon flavored everything so much that my kids are sick of it by December. Thankfully that's when I start baking with eggnog, gingerbread and cranberries. We still have plenty of fall left so I recently whipped up these easy cinnamon muffins. I love the simplicity of cinnamon muffins and the crunchy streusel top goes so well with a steaming cup of coffee.
