Delicious, healthy, from-scratch muffins that are easy to grab for breakfast or a snack throughout the day.
One of my favorite things to make for my kids is muffins. They love eating them, they can be eaten any time of day, and they are so versatile. This recipe especially.
These are similar to banana bread, so if you like that, you’ll love these.
Before you start making anything you will need to soften a stick of butter. You could use an unsoftened stick of butter but you will have a lumpy batter and that’s not as good.
Once your butter is soft, mix the butter, and sugar until smooth. Add in the eggs and bananas and mix until well combined. Slowly add the remaining ingredients except for the strawberries. Mix until everything is just combined. Then fold the strawberries into the batter.
Add batter into a greased muffin tin – I like my silicone one that I got here
Let those sit while you make the topping.
Melt the butter and then add all the remaining ingredients and stir.
Sprinkle the streusel on top.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
While in my opinion these are best fresh, you can make these ahead and then freeze them. They would need to thaw for about 45 minutes once taken out of the freezer and then you can warm in the microwave if you’d like for about 10 seconds.
I have tried these with other fruits rather than strawberries – raspberries, blueberries and just plain banana. While strawberry is my personal favorite, play around with other fruits and see if there is a combo you like best and let us know in the comments!
