Easy Strawberry Muffins With Streusel Topping
I just love strawberry season and all the fun strawberry recipes I can create, like these strawberry muffins made from scratch! I live about 30 minutes from the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World, Plant City, that means I am always looking for the Fresh From Florida sticker on my strawberries. Fresh from Florida strawberries means that I am not only supporting local farmers, but that I am getting strawberries from right up the road! You can get produce fresher than that.
I grabbed the strawberries and other few ingredients for my strawberry muffins from Winn-Dixie, they partner with the families and farms that harvested the land for generations, because they know what customers love and share Winn-Dixie’s commitment to stunning quality and freshness. I guess they would have to be dedicated to freshness considering that Southeastern Grocers sells more than one million locally grown strawberries per month during season. That is a LOT of strawberries!
Not only are strawberries delicious, but they are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, potassium and they are rich in antioxidants. Plus, a whole cup of strawberries has less than 50 calories, that means we can indulge and not feel guilty 😉
If you know me, you know that I am not a baker. I can whip a batch of brownies from a box, no problem, but when things start to get complicated, I am out. So, trust me when I tell you that these Easy Strawberry Muffins are just that. Easy. You need very few ingredients for these strawberry breakfast muffins and the prep time is less than 15 minutes. And most of your prep time is dicing up the strawberries. If you happen to have leftover strawberries, be sure to check out some of the other delicious strawberry recipes below and over on Winn-Dixie’s Facebook page.

Now, you can easily leave off the streusel topping if you want, but I think it adds a little extra touch of sweetness. I mean, can you really go wrong with sugar, butter and cinnamon? I didn’t think so.
