Raspberry-Lemon Muffins with Streusel Topping

Jason and I ate these muffins as part of a special weekend breakfast and they were very tasty! They are fairly low fat and they also freeze well so you can save some to enjoy another day! You can also substitute frozen blueberries or cranberries for the raspberries for variety.
