Strawberry Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

Muffins, muffins I love muffins!!!  Perfect for breakfast and when they are mini muffins you can eat a few and not feel the guilt.  They are mini so the calories must be minature too or at least that’s what I tell myself 🙂

My daughter found strawberries at the store and had to have them so……I made some muffins.  They contain both white and wheat flour, yogurt, and strawberries (so they are a little healthy).

The strawberries add a sweetness and a bit of color to the chocolate chip muffins. Perfect for a sweet morning!

Sweet Friday

What a wonderful morning!!! It is the type of summer morning that you dream about- brillant blue sky, light breeze, low humidity and that just right summer temperature-warm enough for swimming but not warm enough to melt.  The birds are singing with joy and it is a sweet, sweet morning!

To celebrate I made a new recipe, Chocolate Strawberry Muffins.  Daughter 2 looked at them and thought Really Mom, really they do not sound that good but she was surprised.  She said they are interesting and I can make them again!! High praise from a finicky eater.  So here is the recipe.
