Surprise your family with these Fresh Strawberry Muffins for breakfast any day of the week. They take just 5 minutes to prepare and bake while you’re getting ready for work.
As I mentioned back in January, I have a TON of old recipes drafted for you that I just haven’t gotten around to sharing. Currently, I have around 372 recipes written that I haven’t posted.
That’s crazy, isn’t it? But, I’m working on it…this is the year.
And these Fresh Strawberry Muffins are one of those recipes.
Since it’s nearing strawberry season, I figured now would be a great time to get this one posted for you. Especially, if you’ve decided to start your own strawberries this year.
These yummy muffins are made with fresh strawberries and lots of vanilla. Plus, they only take a few minutes to whip up.
Believe it or not, the recipe is so easy that you could whip them up first thing in the morning and have them ready for your family as soon as you get out of the shower.
