  • Make sure to use cold butter for the crumb topping to ensure the streusel is crumbly.
  • If you don’t have unsalted butter, you can use salted butter and reduce the amount of salt used in the muffin batter.

  • Substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour in the crumb topping for a nuttier flavor and added protein. This substitution will give the topping more texture and flavor, while also adding more nutritional value.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter in the muffins for a dairy-free alternative. Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter, and will give the muffins a subtle coconut flavor.
