Strawberry Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

Updated on September 10, 2014

Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins

One day, I decided I was going to bake some kind of strawberry muffins for the first time ever. It started with first thinking about and craving chocolate chip muffins from the grocery store bakery and thinking how long it's been since I've had them.

I got an idea to try to bake them instead, so, I looked up recipes. As I searched for recipes, I came across the Sunny morning muffins recipe from Sunny Anderson from FoodNetwork.com with strawberries, cinnamon, bananas, nutmeg, blueberries, and nuts. It's a great recipe, though being the baker and cooker that I am, I love to experiment and change up recipes, curbing them to what I like. In that muffin combo, I don't like blueberries, nuts and nutmeg, and didn't have any bananas lying around, so, I cut those ingredients out.

I put the strawberries and added a bit more cinnamon than I probably should have. But it was definitely worth it! The result was Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins! They are healthier than chocolate chip ones and they turned out really delicious! Even my beau always looks forward to having a Strawberry Cinnamon Muffin on Monday mornings when he has to travel. He calls it his "Monday Morning Muffin"; he loves it so much!

I've decided to share my experimented muffin recipe, modeled after the Sunny Morning Muffins recipe, that resulted in Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins. Here is the recipe:
