These Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel are perfectly moist & filled with the crisp flavors of fall & they make a deliciously festive addition to a fall breakfast or brunch!
Over the last week I have been trying to determine why I love fall so much.
At first I wondered if it is because of all the baking I do, I mean who doesn’t love Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel?
Then I thought it might be because of the trees. I love trees more than flowers & this is the season trees really come to life! Oh & I really love stomping on crunchy leaves. I even choose my path depending on where the most leaves have fallen.
Although my love for fall could also be because of all of the warm & snuggly clothes & my over eagerness to wear all 7 of my $9.95 Anthropologie tops.
But after much thought & consideration, the real reason I love fall is because it is the beautiful red & gold carpet to my favorite holiday of all… Christmas!
Don’t worry, I won’t officially start blogging about Christmas until November.
No, I’ll be honest, the end of October.
I just can’t wait!
Don’t worry, I know you didn’t come here to talk about Christmas so I’ll try to stay focused on fall.
In the Miller home fall is baking season. So far I have shared two fall baking recipes with you & it isn’t even Labor Day yet!
But really, would you have wanted me to wait until it was officially fall before I started sharing fall recipes? If I had you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the sweet fall flavors of these Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel for another 4 weeks!
And that would be just plain sad.
These Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel are perfectly moist & filled with the crisp flavors of fall.
Your tastebuds will be begging for a taste when the scent of apples & cinnamon permeate every corner of your home.
The best part is that these Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel are super simple to make. But don’t take my word for it, bake up a batch of this fall goodness for yourself!

- In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup quick oats, 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar, & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Then use your fingers to blend in the 6 tablespoons of butter evenly into the oat streusel. Set to the side for later.

- *1. To ensure your oven is at the right temperature for baking, preheat your oven before you start so that it will continue to warm up an additional 5-10 minutes before you place your muffins in the oven.

- *3. When a toothpick comes out clean your muffins are done baking.
- *4. Store your muffins in a sealed container for up to a week.
