Strawberry and Cream Muffins with an Almond Streusel Topping (Gluten-free)!

Strawberry and Cream Muffins gluten-free

When you have too many fresh strawberries in the house, and you know you want to eat them up – use this recipe! These muffins are fluffy, flavorful and no one will miss the gluten.

One quick tip to remember is that if you are buying fresh berries at the farmer’s market or your local grocery store – don’t was them until you are ready to eat – because washing makes them go bad faster.
