These light, tender coffee cake streusel muffins have a secret ingredient in the batter, and are topped with a walnut streusel. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a coffee date!
Aaaah, muffins. They used to be called “muffles” by my older son, and it was adorable. Of course now, he refuses to say it, even to amuse his mother. 4 year olds, man… they’re just not very co-operative… ha.
I used to love making muffins for him, and sneaking veggies or oats into them, and smiling to myself.
I didn’t make these for him. There is practically nothing healthy about them…although, he did consume his fair share, now I think about it!

The smell of these in the oven, and cooling on the rack was sooooo good. I love the smell of butter and cinnamon and sugar… mmmm… smells like a home!
What I really like about these, is that they are in muffin form, vs a cake. Makes it easy to grab and go!
The sour cream I use in these coffee cake muffins makes them fairly rich, but SUPER tender. Spring for the full fat kind!
You could sub the walnuts for pecans or almonds if that’s what you have.
Want more muffins/sweet treats? Of course you do!
