Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 425 degrees (you will turn down heat when ready to bake muffins).
  2. Line 16 muffin tins with paper liners.
  3. To make the topping: combine all the topping ingredients in a small food processor and chop into a crumbly mixture; set aside.
  4. To make the muffin batter: blend the softened butter with the sugar.
  5. Add in eggs, vanilla and buttermilk; whisk with a large whisk until smooth.
  6. In a small bowl, blend the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
  7. Mix the flour mix into the creamed mix; stir to combine well (you may beat this mixture with an electric mixer, this should be smooth and NO lumps).

  9. Using a large icecream scoop, fill a generous amount into each muffin tin.
  10. Top with as much topping as you can on top of the muffin batter.
