Strawberry Pecan Mini Crumb Cakes [skinny recipe]

strawberry pecan crumb cakes

I’ve been getting into lots of sweet Valentine’s treats lately, it started with the chocolate almond copy-cat Moose Munch and my simple candied pecans, then of course last week’s guilty pleasure, the no-bake Strawberry Rum Crumble!  Actually it was last week’s recipe that inspired me to create today’s delectable mini muffins!  I had a bit of strawberry pie filling & crumble left, so I turned it into better-for-you Strawberry Pecan Crumb Cakes!  Think coffee/crumb cake with luscious hints of strawberry…and of course with their sweet pink color, these mini crumb cakes make for a perfect Valentines Day breakfast treat 😉
