Strawberry-Banana Muffins

These muffins are amazing. I don't think I've ever had both strawberries and bananas together in a muffin, but I had both on hand and they were getting pretty ripe so I made these for breakfast. Here's what you need:
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • zest of 1 lemon

In a small bowl, mix together strawberries and 2 tablespoons sugar. Let sit a few minutes until strawberries give off their delicious juices.

In another small bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt.
Now in a large bowl, mix together the mashed banana, eggs, oil, 1 cup sugar, strawberries, and lemon zest.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Don't overmix. I also folded in a handful of frozen blueberries here at the last minute....totally optional...

Now just scoop into your muffin pan and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry.

Serve and enjoy!
