Strawberries and lemons are such a fun summer combo, so I thought it would be fun to give you a recipe for strawberry lemonade muffins! These muffins have a strong lemon flavor with fresh chopped strawberries throughout.
Here are some muffin tips for you:
- If you’d like you can switch out the strawberries for blueberries or even raspberries!. Whichever berries you choose, I would use fresh berries and not frozen.
- Make the muffins ahead of time, freeze them, and then reheat in a 300ºF oven for about 20 minutes and they will taste like you just baked them! This is really helpful if you’ve got house guests.
- To prevent any aluminum from leaching into the muffins, use unbleached muffin liners, or use an oiled stainless steel muffin pan.
- When baking with honey, I prefer to use a light colored honey such as Really Raw, Y.S. Organic or Tropical Traditions because of its light flavor. In my experience, other wild honey can overpower the flavor of the recipe, but a light honey adds sweetness without any added flowery aromas.
