Peachy Yogurt Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

Muffins really are a glorious form of food. They can be savory or sweet, crunchy or soft, and the can be filled or topped with just about anything. Even better is that you can make them with some healthier ingredients to be sure they don’t contribute to any other muffin tops… YIKES!  Take note you can use just about any other form of fruit you would like in place of peaches. In addition, you can substitute 1 cup of white flour for 3/4 whole wheat flour below. Adding in some whole wheat flour will add some fiber and protein to the muffins however they will also make the muffin slightlys more dense. Using yogurt in this recipe makes it a lower fat version without compromising the light and fluffy texture! This is a simple recipe that just involves a whisk, 2 bowls, a muffin tin, and my most favorite thing ever – streusel topping! Enjoy!
