Cinnamon Struesel Muffins

Today’s recipe is another egg free option. I love to share these, because when my son needed egg free options, I had such a hard time finding recipes that I didn’t have to tweak or invent. This recipe is delicious with flaxseed or with eggs. I hope that you will bake up some of these yummy muffins.  They make a great quick breakfast on the go if your teenagers are running late.  Ha-ha!


1 C. whole wheat flour

1C all-purpose flour

1/2 C sugar

2 tsp b.powder

3/4 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

1 C milk

2 TBSP flaxseed + 4 TBSP water-mix in a small bowl and let stand; OR 2 eggs

6 TBSP butter, melted


1/2 C flour

4 TBSP brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

4 TBSP butter, softened


Preheat oven to 325-350º(depending on dark or light pans). Line muffin tins with liners.

In a small bowl, prepare the topping by mixing all ingredients until well combined. Set aside.


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir.


In a small bowl, whisk milk, flaxseed/water combo(OR 2 eggs), and butter until well blended.  Add to the dry ingredients. Mix until just moistened.  I use a fork when I’m mixing muffin batter.  If you over-mix, then you tend to get tunneling in your muffins.


Scoop batter into prepared muffin tins. Scoop topping onto each muffin. Slightly press down topping into batter.  This recipe makes 15-16 muffins.


Bake for 16-18 minutes. Remove from tins and let cook on wire racks. Enjoy!  You could easily substitute a different milk with this, or add oats to the topping and decrease the flour.  I love recipes that you can change up depending on how you feel that day!

Life is Good.  Share the Good.

PS  Thanks to a wonderful neighbor who gave me some tomatoes, I made Homemade Salsa for Canning yesterday.  How is your canning going this fall going?  I really intended not to can since I’m so tired with my one year old whose teething.  But after yesterday, I just get so happy seeing jars of beautiful food on my counter, I might do a little more.:)

PSS Here’s what the flaxseed looks like after it’s had time to gel with the water.
