I had copious amounts of walnuts one day and decided to turn them into a crumble to top my muffins I am SOOOO glad I did this becuase as soon as we ate them they quickly became my most favorite muffin. I also shared these with my neighbor and she said they were so good that they could win awards!! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Saving Money:

Purchase your walnuts at bulk barn so  that you get exactly what you need for this recipe. You can also find bins at places like walmart that package up walnuts for a cheaper price. You can find them at the end of the vegetable isles.

Quick Tips & Tools:


2 Muffin trays, muffin cups, 2 medium sized bowls, measuring spoons, mixing spoon / spatula.



You can use eggs instead of flax meal. We personally love flax though for the added fibre, omega’s, and super soft consistency of muffins. Plus you don’t have to waste your eggs 🙂

Saving Time:

Double or even triple your muffins!! And freeze them to have later for snacks, desserts or picnics.
