Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Fresh Strawberry Muffins with Cinnamon and Sugar Topping.

You know a couple of weeks ago when I was nuts about picking strawberries at a local strawberry farm? Well . . . I went just a little overboard and had SO many that I didn’t know what to do with them. Fresh Strawberry Muffins

My kids LOVE muffins. Specifically the kind you get from the grocery store in a bag that you pour into the bowl, add water and voila . . .you are Martha freakin Stewart.

Well I’m definitely no Martha, more like Betty (Crocker) but I don’t have to be with this SUPER easy and simple muffin recipe! It took me 30 minutes max to knock it out and had my house smelling like a bakery. WIN WIN.

Pour into muffin tins, fill about 2/3 of the way full. ( I have yet to master the perfect muffin mix ratio for those perfect tops!) I added a strawberry to the tops of mine!
