Strawberries are currently in season and we are so lucky in Queensland to be surrounded by local growers supplying us we fresh and tasty organic strawberries. Always a sucker for a special, I found myself buying a ridiculous amount of strawberries.  Voilà, I was inspired to bake something with the excess. These strawberry and banana muffins were born and have quickly become a favourite for friends and family.

Full of quality ingredients and none of those nasties that are found in store-bought muffins. Made with whole-grains, good fats and sweetened with only fresh fruit and maple syrup, means these muffins not only taste good but are great for you. They are a great breakfast option for on the run, snack for the lunch box and great for a picnic. Plus, they freeze well, so make a batch over the weekend and lift out as needed.
