It’s time for a muffin recipe! After a wonderful week with Matt’s (and my) friend, Rob, visiting from Kansas, we thought it would be fun if the guys had a golf weekend and I went to Houston to help my parents clean out part of my grandmother’s house.
It was a great weekend, including Dad surprising us with tix to the Astros game on Saturday! (Thanks, Dad!!) I ate so well this weekend! But, after rich foods at restaurants and special meals with friends and family, I was ready for a homemade ______. (fill in the blank, I wasn’t sure)
This overgrowing mint plant was a hint. (Yes, I have a Topsy Turvy, and it’s wonderful…don’t judge!)
These strawberry mint muffins are slightly sweet (not too much) and have some healthy things in them, and they’re SUPER EASY! The mint flavor is very subtle, but you can add 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract if you’d like more.
