Whole Wheat Strawberry Lemon Muffins

Last night I was in my fridge and realized that the strawberries I bought earlier this week were already starting to look soft! I knew they wouldn’t make it through the weekend so I decided to make some muffins for breakfast. I had a couple of left over lemons from my lemon pound cake, so why not make strawberry lemon muffins?! I did a little research and whipped these up with ingredients I already had at the house.

I will post an update with the video later tonight 🙂
