Strawberry-Lemon Muffins

Strawberry Love

I had just bought 2 large Costco size containers of strawberries when the local store had a sale on beautiful strawberries that we just couldn’t pass up. I thought I would just freeze them for smoothies but then I reconsidered and set out to make a muffin. I couldn’t find a recipe that was meeting all our diet needs so I combined a few and decided to throw in some lemon. They turned out super moist and delicious! And my kids (once again) proclaimed these as the best yet! Just so you know they say this every time i make a new muffin. LOL They will also make a perfect Valentines treat in their school lunches.

Ingredients

-2 1/4 cups almond flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt

-1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)

  1. Did you double this recipe for your family? I am surprised it only makes 6-7 muffins…Sounds delicious though!! I will try this one for sure.

  2. Dannika and I both loved them! I didn’t use almond flour so I had to tweak the liquids a little but YUM! I think maybe I should get some almond flour though…anyways thanks! 🙂
