Streusel Strawberry Muffins

My friends and I enjoy trying new recipes that are good nutritionally. These tasty muffins rely on yogurt and sour cream instead of oil. Everyone loves them!

    We might have a new favorite muffin! These are so good! They come together super quick. Light and moist. The streusel is the perfect amount of sweet crunch on top!

    Made these this morning, and made some strawberry butter to go with them. They are awesome. The only issues I had were the batter was very thick (not sure if that was normal) and they stuck to the papers I used, so when I peeled off the papers, a good bit of the muffin stayed with the papers. :( But I will definitely be making them again!

    I made these without the streusel topping, and they were excellent. With the topping, they would have been outstanding. I used non-fat strawberry yogurt for extra flavor.

    I think this is an excellent muffin recipe! We can't wait to try them with peach or blueberry as well!  They turned just right in moistness for our taste - much better than other recipes I've tried before.

    I made these tonight and I have mixed feelings. I like the flavor and simplicity of the recipe, especially the pieces of strawberry in nearly every bite! The batter was very dry and I think I over-mixed because my muffins were tough. I also used a container Weight Watchers yogurt and some regular strawberry Yoplait. It might be better to not use the WW yogurt. I will try these again and possibly sift the flour to get some lightness.
