Raspberry Lemon Streusel Muffins

I always love to find a new recipe to give my boys for breakfast in the morning. And, muffins always fit that bill. All of us love raspberries, but I’d yet to try them in a muffin. So when I came across this recipe, I knew all of us would enjoy them!

Muffins are always a joy to make in the kitchen, at least in mine. Quickly come together with a few simple ingredients, and they last for 3 days on the counter…available for a quick and easy breakfast or after-school snack whenever. These baked up tall and beautiful, honestly some of the prettiest muffins I’ve ever baked.

And speaking of baking things in an oven, I want to just go ahead and let the cat out of the bag – we’re baking a little something of our own!


Needless to say, this is why things have been a little slow here on the site lately. For the past couple months, it’s all I can do to prepare a meal for my family – much less photograph it and blog about it. So, thanks for bearing with me guys! I’m already getting back into the swing of things, and I can’t wait to see where my pregnancy cravings and crazy ideas lead me in the kitchen this time! Excited to meet this little one in May…due the same day I was with Andrew, our first. What are the odds? Such a great time of year to have a baby!

I hope your family will enjoy these muffins as much as our did. They’re absolutely delicious!

      I did use Greek yogurt, but regular would be fine too!

    Beautiful Pictures. Can you verify the baking soda you used in the recipe. Your instructions indicate adding baking soda along with the baking powder, but there is no amount for baking soda in the ingredients list.

      Cindie, it’s 1/2 tsp. I’ve got it corrected now – thanks for pointing it out!
