Strawberry LemonWhole Wheat Muffins

It started with my grandmother’s recipe for blueberry muffins, which I always loved as a child. But it wasn’t the healthiest breakfast; white flour, vegetable oil, white sugar, yikes! So, I altered it a bit, and now I make good old fashioned (but healthier) blueberry as well as this beautiful twist; strawberry -lemon. Yum!

Strawberry-Lemon Whole Wheat Muffins; easy to make and a delicious way to start the day!  The recipe isn’t fussy. Just throw everything in a bowl and mix it up.
This is our “big purple bowl”. I tried to get rid of it, explaining that it doesn’t look good with my website. But my daughter (getting her sense of sentimentality from her Daddy and clearly not from me) wouldn’t have it. She said this is our popcorn bowl and it has too many memories to get rid of it. Guess I need to be very careful about what I bring into the house!

Lightly spray your muffin pans with cooking spray and fill to about 2/3 full. Bake until fluffy and golden brown.
