Cinnamon sugar streusel muffins

This was a cooking blog to begin with but I just couldn't keep up with the daily posts and the answering back of questions and the promotion that cooking blogs require, so I just decided to do what I love best, which is writing!  But I do still love cooking so much.  So Very much that I have to share this wonderful recipe with you. 

I had them at a church get together and needed the recipe ASAP! They are fluffy, like fluffy and moist and lovely.  And the crumb topping is crunchy, sweet, cinnamon goodness.  They would be perfect for after school or breakfast or whenever, because they are just that easy and perfect, so enjoy!

Note: I didn't use the cinnamon chips but I don't feel like they need them.  Then again, they might need them, but I'm not aware because they are awesome without them.  It's your call! Also, I didn't use the glaze either, but can you ever go wrong with a glaze?

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons softened butter

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup cinnamon chips

1 1/2 TBS Cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake papers and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Prepare the topping by mixing the ingredients together until crumbly. Set aside. 

To make the batter: In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the dry mixture to the liquid, stirring just until combined.

Fill cupcake liners or tins 3/4 full.   Sprinkle with topping, pressing it in lightly.

Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and wait 5 minutes before transferring them from the pan to a rack to cool.

Drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze, if desired.
