This is now a staple recipe in our house. We still have not gotten the topping right (not sure why) but overall this is a solid recipe that makes a dozen healthy breakfasts! I pair with fruit and feel better than eating a pre packaged breakfast bar. I use the whole wheat pastry flour, and I am gradually increasing the proportion of whole to all purpose flour.

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 added a pinch of ginger and a bit of cinnamon and poppy seeds. But what was lacking in this recipe was the strawberry flavor. I really dont think this was enough strawberry. The orange came through but I would never call these orange-STRAWBERRY muffins. Good muffins but not great. The streusel topping was awesome though! But the recipe for the batter needs a makeover.
This was my second recipe from this website (but my first using my kitchen aid mixer!) and I was short on time, so I didn't do the topping, and that might be what's really lacking in this recipe. I also ran out of whole wheat flour, I plan to make again, actually following the recipe.
It's good, but not a super star.
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. Definitley need to make them again. I decided to test out some shredded coconut on top. It is delicous. I brought it into class had them put it on there, they loved it. I love these really need to make them, and I just love these. They are awesome, awesome, AWESOME! These are a must try. You need to.

I expected so much with all the great ingredients in these muffins. I used fresh oranges for the zest from the farmers market and delicious fresh farmers market strawberries.... muffins turned out very moist and soft, no complaints there, but they really lack taste and flavor. I would try it again but majorly tweak, maybe add a little spice like cinnamon and up the sugar a bit.
