Maybe it’s obvious from all the strawberry recipes I’ve shared – freezer jam, ice cream, and jello to name a few – but ripe, sweet strawberries are kind of a thing in my house. This recipe for strawberry muffins is one of my personal favorites. It pairs a rich, cakey batter with a crunchy, crumbly streusel topping, and it’s surprisingly simple to make.
I like to make a batch to celebrate the start of a new day, moving laundry from the washer to the dryer, and sometimes nothing in particular. 🙂
Gluten-Free Strawberry Streusel Muffins
- Standard muffin tin
- Unbleached paper liners are optional but recommended.
For the muffins:
- Chop strawberries into small pieces and set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix together the streusel ingredients and set them aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the muffin dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, melted butter and vanilla, then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and them together. Gently fold in the strawberries with a spoon or spatula.
- Divide the muffin batter between nine cups. Use approximately 1/3 cup batter per muffin cup.
- If needed, pat the batter down into rounded heaps with lightly oiled hands. Next, sprinkle the streusel topping over the batter.
- Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. The top should be springy yet firm when they're ready. Enjoy!
