Muffin Monday: Marble Streusel Muffins

Fasten your seatbelts folks and prepare for a decadent ride through pure indulgence. The holiday muffins are here! This week’s recipe for Marble Streusel Muffins, is the first in what I can only imagine will be a stellar lineup of holiday muffins that Anuradha from Baker Street be tasking us with making over the next several weeks. I know, I know – life’s tough!

After several weeks of adapting recipes to be gluten-free, I embraced the gluten. At first I felt guilty, but after spying the wonderfully rounded domed tops through the oven door my guilt was quickly replaced by glee. Ah gluten – how I’ve missed you!

These muffins are hands down one of my favourites so far…they are AMAZING. Rich, moist, and perfect texture. They were light and fluffy yet still dense enough to remind you that you were eating a muffin rather than a cupcake. It was also not too sweet which I appreciated, making it the perfect accompaniment for my morning coffee.

I added coconut to the streusel and opted to use toffee bits instead of chocolate chips. I also added coconut milk to the batter instead of water, and coconut extract rather than vanilla.

Can’t wait to see what we’ll be baking up for next week. Who would have thought I would ever look forward to Mondays this much?!
