Yesterday fall finally crept in. We woke up to a cold dark house. I stumbled into the kitchen, opened the windows and was pleasantly surprised to see RAIN! We had a lazy morning, mostly passing the time with dress ups, games and lots of silly dancing. The kids helped me re-make these Biscoff coffee cake muffins we originally made years ago. Once again, they were a huge hit with my cinnamon loving mini mes 🙂

The batter for these muffins is rather thick. That’s a good thing though, because it has to hold a generous sprinkling of coarse cinnamon sugar crumble. P.S. I opted to add a heap of cinnamon chips to give these an extra burst of flavor… they’re totally optional.

You’ll want to gently press the crumble into the batter. As the rise (and they will!), the crumble will spread out. If you forget sink them in a bit, you may end up with crumble all over your pan instead of on top of your muffins!

Pull them out as soon as you think they’re done. I used a toothpick to test for doneness. A few minutes too long and you’ll end up with dry, crumbly muffins. So be careful and watch them around the 20 minute mark.

Enjoy these muffins warm with a nice drizzle of melty cookie butter or a slather of butter. They’re pretty darn amazing!!
