From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...These simple muffins will make a wonderful addition to your breakfast or brunch table. They can be made without special equipment and if you have a large bowl and a wooden spoon you can serve your family fresh strawberry muffins within 30 minutes. Early strawberries are already available in supermarkets, but they lack the flavor of those that are harvested in June. These muffins are a perfect way to use early berries. The chocolate chips are a nice, but not necessary addition. I think you are going to love the muffins. Here is how they are made.
