Recipe by Lvs2Cook
A treat for breakfast or tea that can be made year-round with fresh or frozen raspberries. The streusel ingredients make much more streusel than you will need so you can cut it down. I make it all and put the extra streusel in the freezer and then I have streusel whenever I need it. I usually just mix up the streusel in a bowl and work in the butter with my fingertips. I also only get 10 muffins out of this but I have a tendency to really fill up my muffin cups.

Very good muffin recipe! Resulted in tender, moist muffins that were just the right balance of sweet and slight tartness from the berries. My kids gobbled them up. I used frozen raspberries that I thawed overnight, 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. Smart Balance spread and it worked just fine. Thanks, I'll be making these again!
