There are three parts to this recipe, but don’t let that scare you away. Each part has simple ingredients that are a cinch to put together. It will just look like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen baking.

Lemon Cheesecake Muffin Batter

The base of the muffins is a very basic recipe with flour, milk, eggs and butter. Lemon juice, lemon extract and salt for a little flavor. And Truvia Baking Blend,  it’s a sugar substitute blend of zero-calorie Truvia natural sweetener and sugar then packaged in a product that’s designed for easy, at-home baking. It also can be substituted for sugar in any recipe by simply using half as much Truvia Baking Blend as you would sugar.

I have shared lots of recipes with you using Truvia, it’s a favorite around here.

Now it’s time to put together the streusel topping. The ingredient are like a standard streusel recipe – flour, butter and instead of brown sugar, Truvia Brown Sugar Blend. A while back, before they came out with the Brown Sugar Blend, I made my own. It’s nice that I can buy it already made.
