  1. These look awesome! I can’t wait to try these. Muffins are so great, because you can bake them up fresh on a morning when you have a bit of extra time, and then freeze the leftovers for the mornings when you don’t. 🙂 Down here in the Houston suburbs, we have been seeing strawberries at our farmer’s market for over a month, now, and they taste SO much better than anything we get in the stores! 😀

  2. Your Strawberry Banana Muffins look awesome, we would just love them. Hope you have a fabulous Celebration Week End and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  3. Oh my gosh, these sound fantastic. Just my cup of tea! Definitely adding these to my recipes to try soon file. Thanks for sharing. Jana

  4. These are amazing! My picky 4 year old who survives on PB&J devoured two for an afternoon snack and my 18 month old packed away his 1.5 as well (except he objected to the bigger pieces of sliced strawberries so I’ll probably chop them next time … Which might be tomorrow at the rate of consumption)! These are wholesome and delicious — a new favorite at our house for sure!

  5. This are absolutely WONDERFUL! So delicious and moist. I will definitely be making more of these with my leftover or abundant fruit.
    Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe.

    1. I think so, but I would wait to add the strawberries right before you bake them so they don’t get gross. Let us know how it works!

    2. I made all of these at once, but to warm them up, we just pop them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. They taste like they just came out of the oven!

  6. We loved this recipe. Made it today. I added 2 cups of flax meal and some nutmeg. I look forward to breakfast tomorrow!
    Does anyone have a calorie count for these?? I’m trying to keep my tally for the day down.

        1. Sorry, hit the enter button. My recipe made 30 muffins with a 1/3 Cup scoop of batter. Cal 207, Fat 7.7, Chol. 8 mg, Sodium 152 mg, Carb. 32.5, Fiber 4.4, Sugar 13.7, Protein 4. Next time I may cut a small amount of honey out for sugar sake. At least it’s the good sugar.
