Haskap streusel muffin

Streusel muffins

This is is the first recipe I made with our fresh-picked Haskaps. And I didn’t even know a thing about baking with this fruit. But how hard can it be, right?

I love streusel on a muffin, so that’s where we started. It’s become my ‘go to’ muffin. Just make sure you don’t over stir the haskaps in the batter. They can turn everything purple. Try it out! It’s so easy!
