Recipe of the Month: Valentine Lemon Raspberry Streusel Muffins


  • lemon raspberry streusel muffins6 oz lemon yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup oil (I always substitute at least 1/2 of this amount with applesauce, sometimes all of it. If you replace all the oil with applesauce, it will make them denser and a little chewy but they are still delicious)
  • 2 cups flour (choose the flour you like to bake with)
  • 2 teaspoons (tsp) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Streusel Topping

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a large bowl, mix yogurt, eggs, sugar, and oil.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and stir until well mixed.
  4. Add in raspberries and fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
  5. To make streusel, use a pastry blender or a fork to mash ingredients for several minutes, until butter is well incorporated and the consistency is like small crumbles.
  6. Sprinkle topping over batter and bake muffins at 400° for 18 to 22 minutes.

(This recipe makes about 18 regular sized muffins.)
