Seriously. Love. Muffins.
Healthy or sugar-loaded. Breakfast or snack. Muffins are almost always a winner for me.
But I've been in a muffin creativity rut lately. I usually fall back to my Apple Spiced Muffins, a recipe my mom gave me. These are muffins from my childhood and I love them. But a little variety is needed.
These Strawberry Muffins are very similar to my own Apple Spiced version, but the strawberries add a lovely sweetness/tartness to it. They're quick to whip together and definitely a tasty contender to my long standing go-to muffin.
