Coffee Cake Muffins

It's Monday morning and the only thing that's going to get me through the Monday blues is a nice blast of caffeine from a big cup of Joe.

The perfect thing to go along with a steaming hot cup of coffee is some type of baked good fresh from the oven and what goes along better with coffee than a coffee cake muffin?

Coffee Cake Muffins 

Crumb Topping 
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil or melted butter

Coffee Cake Muffin Batter 
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2.5 tsp cinnamon
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbs + 1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)
2/3 cups oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs

Cinnamon Glaze 
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C
Line 2 standard size baking pans with paper liners or coat with non-stick spray.
In a small mixing bowl mix together the dry ingredients of the crumb coating and then add the oil. Pinch together until crumbs form. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
To make the batter mix together the batter dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then add the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins filling 1/2 way. Top with chilled crumb topping and lightly press into the batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes. In the meantime mix together the glaze ingredients. Allow the muffins to cook for a bit and then drizzle with the glaze.
