{Oreo Week} Oreo Streusel Muffins

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend here in the Midwest…yesterday it was at least 70° (or more).  Seriously fall, could you please grace us with your cool air and bright sunshine?  I really don’t want to sweat in October.

What I would like to do in October is enjoy a few more of these beauties…Oreo Streusel Muffins.  Heaven help us all.  Tender vanilla muffins studded with bits of Oreo and topped with OREO STREUSEL?!  I’m a streusel lover and this is one of the best ideas ever.

By the way…(in case you didn’t read the title of this post) it’s OREO WEEK!!!  That’s right, we’re bringing you all things OREO, all week long.  With a special thanks to Ben, since doing a themed Oreo week was his idea.  These cookies are his absolute fave!  And I’m pretty sure these muffins would be too.  Any excuse to eat Oreos for breakfast is a winner in his (and my) book!

Oreo Streusel Muffins

Ingredients

    Muffins:
  • 2 cups FLOUR
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons BAKING POWDER
  • 1 cup SUGAR
  • 1/2 cup BUTTER, softened
  • 2 EGGS
  • 2 teaspoons VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 1/2 cup MILK
  • 12 OREOS, coarsely chopped
  • Streusel:
  • 2 Tablespoons FLOUR
  • 2 Tablespoons SUGAR
  • 2 Tablespoons BUTTER, cut into small pieces
  • 4 OREOS, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 385°. Prepare a muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. Mix together streusel - in a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and finely chopped Oreos. Using a fork, mix in butter until mixture is sand like. Put in the fridge to chill for 10 min.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Set aside for later.
  4. Cream together butter and sugar using an electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
  5. Add flour and mix at low speed, pour in milk and mix until just combined. Stir in chopped Oreos.
  6. Filling muffin tins 3/4 full, divide batter among prepared muffin cups. Divide streusel mixture between the muffin tops.
  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes.

Notes

I ran out of butter (gasp! I was visiting my sister) and ended up using coconut oil in the streusel topping and it worked out great.

You could crush the Oreos finer if you would like.

The recipe said the yield was 10-12, but I actually got 15 muffins from this recipe.
