You know I love adding CA Walnuts into my Mezze Boards and into my Sticky Buns and into pasta… but today they are front and center IN these muffins and on top. The California Walnuts get mixed into the very easy batter and then made into a simple streusel to go on top. It is EVERYTHING! Hands down these are one of the most versatile kitchen staples in my life!!! 

Ok let’s get into these shall we? The muffin base is simple – all staples in the kitchen, nothing hard to find! If strawberries aren’t quite at their peak by you, you can use any other berry! Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, you name it!

The batter will be thick before you bake – NOT TO FEAR! That’s the goal.

Let’s talk walnut streusel!! You can buy the walnuts in halves or pieces! If you use halves, you’ll need to give them a rough chop before using since you want the streusel to stay on top of the muffin and not sink down!! The walnuts are combined with brown sugar, obviously a match made in heaven. Flour, duh. Lemon, to give you a little zip that you never knew you were missing! And salt to make all the flavors really pop and come to life!!
