  1. I liked these muffins very much. I think adding a streusel topping to muffins, as this recipe does, really ups the wow factor for muffins and gives it a bakery quality. I did not have quick cooking oats as called for in the recipe so I pulsed regular oats in a food process for a few seconds to make quick cooking oats. I bet adding chopped pecans to the streusel and/or the muffin batter would be good also. This recipe made 12 muffins from a silicon muffin pan. There is sufficient streusel to put a nice layer of streusel on each muffin.
