Spice cake muffins topped with streusel and salted caramel. Delicious with a cup of coffee or tea!
Your kids are going to love this one.
No kids? It goes over pretty well with adults too. I should know… I ate about three last night.
See those quick oats up there? Yummy, fill-you-up fiber, disguised as streusel topping. I love to make special snacks for my kids to take to school, and muffins are at the top of the list. You can fill them with any wholesome (or not) ingredients that you want, and they taste like love.
Plus, at home, you can drizzle them with salted caramel and take it over the top.
Caramel simply should not exist without sea salt stirred in. The sweet & salty makes these muffins so delicious.
I used a boxed spice cake mix and store-bought caramel sauce. Could I have made it all from scratch? OF COURSE. But then it wouldn’t be a quick ‘n easy way to make snacks your kids will devour. And let’s face it, you’d never make them that way. Who is stirring up homemade caramel on a weeknight? Not me.
Tuck one in your kid’s backpack or enjoy a couple after dinner. Makes the transition back into routine just a little bit easier.
