Cinnamon Ripple Muffins

1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup diced pecans
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons soft butter

3 tablespoons soft butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake papers, or grease it lightly.
Prepare the topping by mixing the ingredients together until crumbly. Set aside.
Prepare the filling by mixing all filling ingredients. Set it aside.
To make the batter: In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the dry mixture to the liquid, stirring just until combined.
Divide half the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Dollop 2 teaspoons cinnamon filling onto each muffin, then top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle with topping, pressing it in lightly.
Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and wait 5 minutes before transferring them from the pan to a rack to cool. Yield: 12 muffins.
