Berry Crumb Muffin Recipe with Strawberries and Blueberries

I love berry season!  Check out this Berry Crumb Muffin recipe.  It’s a delicious way to use all of those amazing, delicious sweet strawberries and blueberries that are available right now at supermarkets, farmers markets and local farms.  We are really enjoying all of the flavors that the spring/summer season finally brings to the northeast.  

And, I love muffins!  Not just because they are delicious, but because it makes breakfast EASY.  I can make them ahead and simply pull them out and have them on the counter ready in the morning.  I would add a little fresh fruit, maybe more fresh berries, and yogurt to the spread.  Now it looks like you’ve spent hours and you haven’t = yay!  This plan is great for company and equally great for the family breakfast plan.

No short order cooking going on here.
