How to make Strawberry Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins

  1. Preheat oven.

    Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Combine dry ingredients.

    In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Prepare batter.

    n a small bowl, beat the egg with the milk and oil. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips and strawberries.

  4. Fill cups with batter.

    Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups ¾-full.

  5. Prepare streusel and sprinkle over the top.

    In a separate small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients – cutting the butter into the flour and sugar until it forms coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel mixture evenly over the tops of the muffins.

  6. Bake.

    Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the muffins test clean when a toothpick is inserted near the middle.

  7. Cool.

    Cool 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
