Raspberry Streusel Muffins

FullSizeRender(4)

Since the hubs is home, it’s time to bust out some of the recipes I’ve been collecting (read: Pinning on Pinterest). This muffin recipe is one that I saved from my mom’s Pins. She made them during a visit recently and I couldn’t help but attempt to reproduce them. They are so good! I substituted the vegetable oil for walnut oil and they were phenomenal, so don’t be afraid to go there if you have almond oil, walnut oil, or similar.

The recipe itself comes from Oh My God Chocolate Desserts. While the recipes on this site look promising, the ads are a little over the top and I probably won’t spend too much time looking around. It was worth the hassle to get these made though!

  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
