Fall weather makes us crave spiced treats such as these delicious streusel topped muffins. The tops are deliciously crumbly, the spiced muffins moist and full of flavor. Milk chocolate chunks are added to make them a little more decadent for the holiday season.

This recipe is designed to be fully prepared without using any mixers, making clean up super quick and easy. Just grab 2 large mixing bowls, once for the dry ingredients, and another for the wet. Incorporate the latter into the flour mixture, and you will end up with a beautifully colored batter such as the one above.

Divide the batter into 12 muffin liners, as evenly as possible.

The streusel topping is mixed by hand in a medium bowl, once again to avoid using too many appliances.  Save the extra streusel mix for baked apples or pears.

Top with the streusel, be as generous as you wish here with the quantities! Bake for 30-35 minutes.

  • These look delicious! Haha, regarding the “what kind of food blogger would I be” question – I have thought the same thing to myself for the whole of fall so far!! But pumpkin puree is so expensive in England yet carving a pumpkin is so tricky…The pumpkin recipes have been sadly scarce! Love the streusel!! 😀

  • Linda
