2 C fresh or frozen raspberries

Use regular size muffin tins. You can spray the tin and put batter directly into the tin or spray the top area of the tin and use paper lined cups for the wells (The latter works the best.) Fill cups so they are crowned a little over the top, makes 11 good size muffins. Mix the sugar and flour together for the streusel topping, then cut in butter to make crumbles. Divide mixture between the 11 muffins and sprinkle on top. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 40-45 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Serve hot with butter.
For gluten free, I use McArthur Gluten Free Flour. You might have to add an additional 1/4 cup flour to the 2 cups of flour to thicken it up for a whole batch. What is even better, use the regular amount of flour and add 1 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum. It is a thickener. You can find it in the specialty foods area of your grocery store. They turned out wonderful using this. Gluten free has a tendency to be crumbly even more so if you are adding more flour. This took care of that and if you hadn’t told me they were gluten free, I wouldn’t have been able to tell!

I saw a bag of this at Sams Wholesale the other day, called Muddy something, so I suppose you could buy it pre-made. It might be cheaper homemade, and you don’t have the extra chemicals in it! I got this recipe from Carol Weiner of Townsend, at Tuesday’s Dazzling Dominos Dames!
9 cups of Rice Chex (almost a whole box)
½ cup of peanut butter (doesn’t make any difference if it is creamy or chunky, but I use creamy.)
12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Melt the chocolate on your stovetop and add the peanut butter. Mix just until creamy smooth. Pour over the Chex mix in a big bowl. Gently toss and stir until covered. Then pour over the top a cup of powdered sugar and toss until pieces start to separate. You will do this 3 or 4 times using a few cups of powdered sugar but I never measured exactly how much. This freezes well.
