Since I started eating healthier, the one meal of the day that I struggle the most with is breakfast. Not so much with eating it, but with coming up with quick and easy ideas that I can enjoy. A girl gets tired of eating Greek yogurt and fruit, cereal, and steel-cut oats. I need something with a bit of “flava” and something that I can enjoy. I have bought these organic whole grain waffles that are okay but there is the deal with syrup (a lot of sugar) and I have tried to make breakfast burritos but by the time I get to work the tortilla is soggy or I just don’t have much of an appetite for it any more. That personal issue itself encouraged me to get creative and make some muffins.
When I was thinking about the flavor I wanted to make the muffins, the first thing that came to mind was strawberry and banana. Just that easily. I have never had a strawberry banana muffin. Have you? Then again, I don’t eat muffins that often. Nevertheless, I wanted to create the muffin to see how they would come out and, of course, they came out great. The crumble texture on top helps give the muffin some texture and using cake flour makes for one moist muffin. Now I know what you are thinking, “How are you eating this if you are eating healthier?” Right? Well the answer is simple…it has fruit in it :-).
