Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

I would like to call them Sinful Cinnamon Muffins…They are simply amazing and oh so moist.What I love about them is the

texture which is more like a coffee cake than a muffin.

These are spiced just right.I love the crunchy streusel…especially with the addition of the chopped walnuts that give it that nice crunch.

A good tip would be to add some of the streusel in the middle of the muffin batter as well.Also the addition of honey gives it a

nice gooey texture.

These muffins are quite a hit with my family and I bake them quite often.I enjoyed baking them and hope you will give them a try
