To make streusel, combine all ingredients and stir to combine.

Fill each paper cup ¾ full of batter and top with streusel.  Bake muffins for 30 to 35 minutes.

Note: I just used olive oil b/c i didn’t have coconut oil at the time. coconut oil is way better to use bc it “maintains its chemical integrity” even at “high temperatures”*
