Prep time


Cook time



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour​
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour​
  • 3/4 cup maple sugar​
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder​
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt​
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda​
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg​
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature​
  • 1/2 cup milk​
  • 2 large eggs​
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract​


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour​
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar​
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats​
  • Pinch of salt​
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature​


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a standard 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper cups. While your oven is preheating, place the oats on a baking sheet and toast for about five minutes until they smell nutty and begin to turn golden brown. Set the oats aside to cool.
  2. To make your muffin batter, whisk together your flours, maple sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and nutmeg in a large bowl. Slice your softened butter into pats and add them to the dry mixture, and using a pastry cutter or your fingers work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles an even, coarse meal.
  3. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, mix the milk, eggs and vanilla and whisk thoroughly to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together.
  4. To finish the streusel, combine the toasted oats, flour, maple sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and use your fingers to work the butter in until you have a rough but even mixture.
  5. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter in to each well of your muffin tin, filling about 2/3 full. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of streusel to the top of each muffin, dividing the mixture evenly among the 12 muffins. Bake 22-25 minutes.
