“Wonderful muffins for those tarter berries, like red or black currants, lingonberries or gooseberries. The nuttiness of the whole wheat flour works so well with the sweet&tart thing going on here! Based on a few recipes I found online and fiddled with!”

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C
  2. Put the topping ingredients in a bowl and rub them together until you have a crumbly mix. Set aside.
