Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Streusel

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and prepare two muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut oil, sugar, eggs, Greek yogurt, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix.
  5. To prepare the streusel topping, mix together granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, flour and oats. Pour melted butter over the dry mixture, and use hands to mix form the clumpy streusel topping.
  6. Evenly divide the muffin batter into 18 muffins wells. I use a spring release ice cream scoop to make them uniform in size. Top each one with the streusel topping. It may seem like you had too much, but as the muffin rises the streusel topping will thin out.
  7. Bake at 375 for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  8. Remove the muffins from the tin and cool.
