We love the combination of strawberry and orange in this sweet breakfast muffin with a streusel topping. For a less conventional (but equally delicious) twist, try the basil variation. The hint of basil complements the fruity berries wonderfully.

"I had to do seventh grade home and careers home work, and this totally helped my grade. I got a 100%! Yay. Well these taste so good. I will have to try them again. A lot of ingredients, but that did not stop our class from making these....

This is NOT a healthy breakfast choice!

Each of these muffins contains 10 grams of added sugars. The American Heart Association recommends children consume no more than 12 grams daily. (Due to their strong connection to obesity, diabetes, certain cancers, and heart disease!) Who approved this recipe?

Try the basil variation -

Try the basil variation - switch out the orange juice for buttermilk. Strawberries have no added sugar and are fantastic for you.

I agree with you. The sugar

I agree with you. The sugar content was not listed in the nutritional information either. There is sugar in the orange juice and the strawberries

Basil variation is better!

The strawberry-orange muffins are certainly tasty, but the basil variation is the clear winner.

Will you direct me to that variation please? The recipe says *see variation* And I must be missing it lol. I can't find it! Thank you!


This muffin is moist and flavourful and not terrible for you.
The streusel on top tastes very buttery...yet there's no butter in it. Makes it feel incredibly sinful and bad for you, but it's not!!!
Brought these into work and everyone raved about them. Thanks for this recipe - it's going to be one that I make over and over again!

Excellent Streusel Topping - very different

i made em a little healthy by replacing all purpose with whole wheat and oats. skipped the juice and instead added an extra tbsp of the zest, although the juice might have done well.........turned out wonderful. dont skip the topping!

Flavor needs enhancement

These muffins are probably just fine for breakfast with a fruit or smoothie, but by themselves they're missing some flavor. The topping is salty -- but I think if you double up on the strawberry and instead of using chunks, dice the strawberry relatively fine, you can increase the strawberry flavor. I would also be willing to try a strawberry coconut combo, as another reviewer suggested. Besides substituting coconut oil for the canola and dicing my strawberry more fine, I followed this recipe to a T. Will def keep on hand and try again with the aforementioned changes.
