If there’s one thing I know, it’s that I’ve yet to meet anyone that doesn’t love having fresh muffins greet them for breakfast or brunch. Or a snack. You know, whenever. Especially when said muffins contain in-season ingredients like these Strawberry Banana Muffins. If you’re that one person in the world that doesn’t enjoy a good muffin, do your self a favor and quit reading. For my fellow carb addicts, I’m here to please!
When I decided that I wanted to share this recipe with you, I had to dig in my e-mail recipe folder to find it. The subject of the e-mail from my friend Gabby was “Recipe for Super Mama.” If you received an e-mail with a subject line like that, wouldn’t it more than make your day? Even if you knew that it was the furthest thing from the truth? The answer is definitely yes. Even four years after she originally sent it, it made me smile when I saw it. If she thinks I’m super, I can’t even fathom what the correct adjective for these Strawberry Banana Muffins is. Stupendous? Out of this world? Fabulous? I’ll get back to you on that one.
These muffins are the perfect treat for any mama in your life. Your own mother, your mother-in-law, your grandmother, the awesome women that live next door to you that said they won the neighbor lottery when you moved in. (Yes, my neighbor actually said that even though my middle child has no volume control and squeals at a decibel that will call any dog within the county when she’s outside.) Large pieces of strawberries bedazzle this banana muffin batter. These Strawberry Banana Muffins are moist, pretty, and they freeze really well. Strawberries on sale this week? Buy extra to make a large batch of muffins. Your family will thank you!
In fact, I’m betting these would be the perfect beginning to a muffin bar of sorts – an amazing way to feed a crowd for breakfast or brunch. Some of our other favorites are my decadent Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, delicious Cherry Almond Oatmeal Muffins and lightened up Yogurt Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins.
My friends have also shared delicious banana muffin recipes like these Cinnamon Swirl Peanut Butter Banana Muffins that have all my favorites stuffed inside, these rich Cream Cheese Banana Muffins and these Butterscotch Banana Muffins – love that flavor combination!
And look how awesome they are when packaged! I’ve partnered with my dear friend, Jennifer of Jennifer McGuire Ink, again this month who created this amazing packaging for my muffins. Make the day of a mama in your life and gift them with love from your kitchen this Mother’s Day.
