With the help of grocery store pop-tube rolls, these sweet streusel strawberry crescent muffins will be a welcome addition to any breakfast or brunch menu!
Of all the convenience foods in the market the pop-tube dough (crescent dough, in particular), is my favorite.
Pop crescent rolls so versatile and can be used in all kinds of sweet and savory dishes. From appetizers to desserts, and everything in between!

The result is a deliciously tempting muffin that's super simple to make and utterly delicious!

- 2 tubes crescent roll sheets (not the perforated kind)
- granulated sugar

Can the perforated crescent roll dough be used to make this recipe?
If that's all you have on hand or all you can find in the market, using the perforated crescent roll dough is perfectly fine.
You'll just need to take the time to press all the perforations together to form solid sheets of dough.
Can other fruit be used in this recipe?
I like to use fresh fruit and substitutions like apples, blueberries, cherries, pears (you get the idea) would all work well for this easy breakfast muffin recipe.
That said, peel the fruit (if needed), and chop into small pieces. Since the baking time is relatively short for these muffins the small pieces will cook faster and yield a softer end product.
Can jam be used in place of the fresh fruit in this recipe?
That's a wonderful idea!!
I would spread a thin layer of jam over the butter layer and continue with the recipe as written.
How to make strawberry crescent muffins:
- Line a muffin tin with muffin cups and spray them with baking spray. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, use your hands to crumble together the all-purpose flour, quick oats, brown sugar, salt, and butter. Set aside.
- Pat out the two tubes of crescent dough making a long rectangle.
- Press the two pieces together to make one long piece.
- If any holes form, press those together as well.
- Spread softened butter over the surface of the dough and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly on top of the butter.
- Chop approximately 1½ cups of strawberries.
- Spread the chopped strawberries evenly over the cinnamon sugar.
- Gently roll the dough, lengthwise to form a long, jelly roll snake.
- Cut the jellyroll snake into 12 equal pieces and place one cut piece into each of the prepared muffin cups.
- Sprinkle the prepared streusel topping on each crescent muffin.
- Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
