Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 17 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes
Servings 12 -14


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • Streusel Topping
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Wash and dice strawberries. In a large bowl fit with a mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and whisk together. In a separate bowl, combine applesauce, milk, egg and vanilla extract and whisk well to combine. Pour liquid mixture slowly into flour mixture and beat on medium-low just until combined. Batter may be very liquid, this is normal. Stir in diced strawberries and chocolate chips. Pour batter 4/5 up to the top of muffin tin, making sure to scoop chocolate chips from the bottom.
  • Meanwhile make the streusel topping. Combine flour, both sugars and cold butter in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, fork or your hands, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add more flour if needed to reach coarse crumbs. Toss in mini chocolate chips.
  • Reserve half the streusel batter for when muffins are done baking. Sprinkle half the streusel batter on top of muffin batter. Bake in oven for 17-22 minutes. Remove from oven when an inserted knife in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Sprinkle remaining streusel topping into muffins pressing topping in.
