Inspired by RSC#11 ingredients. While I had to use white flour as a contest ingredient- I tried to compensate with other healthy ingredients. I hope you enjoy these soft fruity muffins. They seem like something you would buy at a bakery! If you like a lot of streusel double it. The glaze is optional but adds a nice fruity sweet touch. You could also try this as a loaf baked at 350F.

Wow I wish I found these eariler! I doubled the recipe and made them in mini muffin tins. Also I used a bit more oat bran and whole wheat flour and a bit less of the white flour. Also I used part egg beaters and whole eggs. I LOVED the little rasberry surprise in each muffin. And the streusel is very tasty too!

5 stars. Delicious muffins! Cute name for these fruity creations. They sure are large muffins, but bake up beautifully uniform. The amount of topping was plenty for me without doubling it. I chose not to add the optional glaze as I think it would have been a bit overkill and definitely make them too sweet. Withough the glaze these beautiful muffins have so many fruity flavours that blend so well together. Great recipe. Reviewed for RSC #11.
