you’ll swear these super tender chocolate chip crumb muffins came straight from your favorite bakery. made with just a handful of ingredients and done in 30 minutes, they’ll become a fast favorite!



For the Streusel:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter, softened

For the Muffins:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons butter, at room temperature or softened
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% greek or skyr yogurt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


For the Streusel:

  • Combine all ingredients together, using your hands to incorporate the butter so small clumps form.  Set aside.

For the Muffins:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease or line a 6-cup jumbo muffin pan or 12-cup standard muffin pan with paper liners.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Whisk to combine then set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, add butter and sugar, whipping until light and creamy (about 3 minutes).
  • Add eggs, one at a time (whipping for about 30 seconds in between addition) then add vanilla.
  • On low speed, add dry ingredients, alternating with yogurt until just combined.
  • Gently scrape down the sides of the bowl and fold in chocolate chips.
  • Add batter to prepared muffin pan (about 3/4 of the way full).  Then add streusel to the top of each muffin, pressing down to ensure it adheres.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes if using a 12-cup muffin pan and 40-45 minutes if using a 6-cup muffin pan (or until a toothpick of cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean, or with just a few wet crumbs).
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing and allowing to finish cooling on a wire rack.


  • Oven time may vary based on oven.  I recommend checking baking for the minimum recommended time, testing the center of the muffins then adding in increments of 5 minutes as needed.
