  • 2 TBS Oil (Avocado or Olive)
  • 2 TBS Butter (Melted)
  • 3 TBS Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda

Cream cheese layer

Crumble topping

  • 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (Ceylon)
  • 1/4 cup Butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and place liners in a 6 count large muffin tin.
  2. In a stand mixer mix together the egg, sugars, yogurt, oil, butter, milk, and vanilla extract.
  3. In a second bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.
  4. With the stand mixer on a low speed slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet.
  5. Once the batter has come together divide it between the 6 muffin liners.
  6. In another bowl combine the cream cheese, egg and sugar. Mix until combined, it will be a little lumpy, that's fine. Spoon this mixture on top of the batter.
  7. In another bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter to make the crumble. The ingredients will become a wet sand-like consistency. Grab a handful and squeeze it into a log like shape, then crumble the log over the cream cheese layer in the muffin liners until all the crumble is used.
  8. Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes until the centers are fully set. If you stick a toothpick into a muffin to check, be aware that the cream cheese layer will always stick to the toothpick.
  9. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
