OOoooh so good! They are delicious. ( Chopping all the fresh strawberries is a little time consuming but WELL worth it!) The strawberry butter goes so perfectly with it. Yum! I think all the muffins dissapeared in one night at my house:) They make a delicious breakfast too!

These are one of the best muffin recipes ever! I made it exactly as the recipe and they were perfect. And would be good with any kind of fruit...blueberries, raspberries, apples. Perfect! I made them for my kids' school lunches and there are none left for tomorrow.

I love this recipe. The muffins are so moist and delicious. The coconut and strawberries are a great combination and the strawberry butter finishes it off so well. I can't wait to serve these to my guests who will be visiting me this summer.

This is such a great recipe. I'd like to make them as "mini" muffins for an upcoming bridal "tea" shower along with the strawberry butter. I'll have to monitor the baking time for mini-muffin so they don't burn. I think our guests would love these.

Really tasty & easy to make; didn't make the strawberry butter. Great without. The coconut streusel is magnificent!
