Muffins are such a fun, sweet treat!  These muffins are even better because they are diet friendly too!  I don't make muffins often enough.  They are a great sweet treat to have around because they are perfectly portioned and portable.  My husband prefers muffins over cupcakes because he is not a fan of frosting.  Me?  My sweet tooth goes crazy for frosting, so I'm not a huge muffin fan, but I do like them every now and again...especially if the flavors are interesting like the flavors in this muffin.

The banana strawberry flavors in these muffins is a classic combination.  All the fresh fruit results in a muffin with less need for butter or oil, because the fruit helps keep them moist.  These muffins are actually better the next day, once they've had a chance to really meld with the flavors.

I'll leave you with this tip...make sure you don't over mix your muffin batter.  Less is more when it comes to making muffins that have a tender crumb.

  3. I love muffins, I just don't make them as often as I used to (even though I posted one today too! lol) I love good for you recipes that last longer than a day because with two of us we don't eat them all the same day.
