These glazed Strawberry Lemon Streusel Muffins are delicious. It’s always fun to have breakfast muffins around!
Let me describe these muffins for you. They’re muffins filled with freshly chopped sweet strawberries in a cinnamony-lemony batter. And they’re topped with a simple lemony, sweet glaze. I’ve been craving strawberry muffins lately, and these strawberry lemon streusel muffins are now my new favorite! Better double the batch (the recipe makes 12) because they disappear quickly!
- chopped pecans
- light brown sugar
- all purpose flour

How to make Glazed Strawberry Lemon Streusel Muffins:
The complete, printable recipe is at the end of this post.
The first step is making the streusel topping. Combine all ingredients for the streusel and stir until crumbly. Set aside.
The next step is making the muffin batter. Preheat oven to 375°F. and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
I love how the lemon streusel bakes right into the top of the strawberry muffins! Remove the muffins from the pan. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
The final step is making the lemon glaze. Combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle the glaze onto the warm muffins, allowing it to soak in and create a delicious coating. Store these strawberry lemon streusel muffins at room temperature for up to 4 days. Line an airtight container or large zip baggie with paper towel and store the muffins in a single layer. Enjoy!
How to freeze muffins:
After your muffins are completely cooled, place them on a baking sheet and pop that into the freezer until all of the muffins are frozen. Then move the frozen muffins to an airtight freezer baggie (squeeze out any excess air), and then place that baggie in another freezer zip baggie. This helps to prevent freezer burn and dryness. To enjoy a frozen muffin, just take it out of the freezer and either let it defrost or microwave it for a few seconds. Freeze muffins for up to three months.

A bit of a job, but well worth it. The first time I made these muffins, the response was so overwhelming, I now double the recipe every time I make them.
When doubling, the glaze tends to be thick, like a frosting, so just add a little more lemon juice, (a teaspoon or so.) If you prefer a less lemony flavor, just add a little milk or water.
They freeze exceptional well, so don’t be shy about making a large batch.
This one is a real winner. Thanks recipe girl.
YUM, those look fabulous!
