It’s strawberry season and making a batch of soft and absolutely delicious strawberry muffins is the best way to use fresh strawberries. These strawberry muffins are perfectly soft and moist and packed with juicy berries… They’re absolutely divine! And let me give you a tip: cinnamon goes great with these strawberry muffins! Only one teaspoon of ground cinnamon makes these muffins the best strawberry muffins ever.
These muffins are also very easy to make. I think the most difficult part of this recipe is to chop the strawberries :). I used fresh berries because it’s strawberry season but you can also use frozen strawberries. If using frozen berries, thaw slightly, then chop with a knife.
