Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

I'm not entirely sure why I'm enjoying muffins so much at the moment, but I am. I think this may be the second or third muffin recipe I've made in the past few weeks. You can check out the others here and here if you're curious.

As good as my other muffin recipes are, these cinnamon crumb muffins are some of my faves and I think it's all down to the crumb topping. I have to admit that I may have baked extra crumb topping with the sole purpose of eating it straight up. It tastes somewhat like a mixture between cookie crumbs, sponge cake, and caramelized sugar. When paired with deliciously dense lightly spiced sponge cakes, free from the junk, it's even more fabulous.

A little tip about these: they are actually best the next day. The streusel merges with the cake and creates the most delicious texture. So I actually recommend making these the night before and then continuing to enjoy them throughout the week for breakfast or a snack. Sip on a large mug of freshly brewed coffee and tuck in! 

Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

(Makes 8-10 muffins)


1 cup almond flour

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

2 organic eggs

2 tablespoons maple syrup or raw honey

1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crumb Topping

1/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or sweetener of choice)

1/4 cup coconut oil, grass-fed butter, or Ghee

1/4 cup almond flour

2 teaspoons ceylon cinnamon



1) Preheat the oven to 350F and line a muffin pan with unbleached liners.

2) In a large bowl or food processor, mix all of the muffin ingredients together until a smooth batter has formed. Spoon into liners.

3) In a small bowl, mix your crumb topping together. It should form little clumps. Pack the clumpy topping on top of the muffin batter (the more the merrier).

4) Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
