Strawberry Banana Muffins

I’ve made my fair share of strawberry muffins in my lifetime but never one that had the extremely moist and tender texture this one has. Macerating the strawberries before starting the recipe releases their juices and adds not only flavor but moistness that makes this muffin outstanding. It’s the key, it’s important to the outcome of the muffins.

When you’re baking with fruit please remember that the riper the fruit is the more flavor you’re going to get in the final product.  Those bananas that have been sitting on the counter looking a little funky with their black peels , the strawberries that are getting darker, softer and a little wrinkly, those are the perfect over ripe fruits to make these muffins with. Ugly fruit has flavor!  Strawberry Banana Muffins, moist, tender and delicious, ENJOY!
