Make Streusel Surprise Muffins today with your favorite jelly or jam.
Today I’m feeling like strawberry.
But tomorrow, I might be in the mood for chunky applesauce, orange marmalade or cherry preserves. Choose your favorite and fill these muffins with any filling you like.
These muffins are airy and not too sweet, with a surprise bite of jelly or applesauce in the middle and a lip-smacking crunch of oatmeal streusel on top. It’s the perfect breakfast/snack-time/anytime muffin for a special occasion or no occasion at all.
These muffins are versatile. I used my favorite flavors, cinnamon and nutmeg, along with applesauce or strawberry filling. But you can tailor the spices, fillings and toppings to suit your palate. Instead of cinnamon and nutmeg, use 2 t vanilla. Fill the middle with anything from applesauce to lemon curd to chocolate chips.
