Grain free cashew butter and strawberry muffinsI wrote this recipe over the summer when it was strawberry season and my farmer's market always had fresh local strawberries that were out of this world. My son was 2 years old and theoretically loved strawberries; he would request strawberry smoothies and pancakes.... But he wouldn't eat them whole! So, this recipe started out as a paleo strawberry pancake fail, they wouldn't stay together but the flavor was there so I knew I could bake something with this ingredient combo. I should add they weren't an entire fail because my son ate the entire batch, they were just not perfect or recipe worthy.
This muffin recipe is a keeper and we make them a lot. Real simple ingredients, sweetened with just a little raw honey and easy to make. I make them whenever my strawberries are looking like they're ready to spoil.
I decided to add the filling and crumble on top later on, and you can skip both for a real easy strawberry muffin. But all together, this is like a PB&J muffin and the flavors all work really well together. Any nut butter will do, The recipe makes 10 muffins. They last 1 day in this house.
