      Made this for my 5 yr olds Kindergarten class..they were a HIT! Left out the nuts because of an allergy in the class....Next time I will definitely use them...and I will try mixing the topping with a little butter to give it a little more CRUNCH. Lastly....maybe 1/4 cup more brown sugar...or even a hint of molasses may heighten the flavor just a bit...but a good, moist cupcake even without any changes!

      Made these without the cinnamon topping and added a peanut butter frosting. At first I was really disappointed in these. They didn't rise for me at all, stayed almost flat and dense. I baked them for 25 minutes and they still seemed gooey that night. However in the morning that had gone away and they tasted wonderful! I kept one for myself and sent the rest to work with bf before I tasted them again. The guys went nuts over them and he nearly got mauled by people asking what was in them/how to make them and if I planned on making them again lol. If i could just get them to puff up a bit I'd be very happy! I'll have to play around with them a touch. Thanks for sharing Marie!

      I cannot tell you how many times I have made these. I used to make them at my old job and had co-workers wanting me to make a batch just for them. And recently I made them at my new job, and they are a hit their too. A few changes, I did mix the topping ingredients into the batter, faster that way. And the recent ones I made I didn't add walnuts (nut allergies), and I made a batch milk-free. I used rice milk, omitted the baking soda, doubled the baking powder, and omitted the chocolate chips. A total hit the milk-free ones 2 kids ate 9 muffins total.
