Strawberry & Banana Muffins

We had some strawberries that needed to be used so I decided to make Ryan and Charlee a treat this morning. The original recipe can be seen at For The Love of Cooking.
Strawberry & Banana Muffins

Dry Ingredients:               

2 1/4 cup of flour (I used 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1 ¼ wheat flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, diced

Wet Ingredients:

3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
2 large ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla (I used pure vanilla paste because it's pure amazing!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Makes 12 muffins.            

Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Mix in strawberries making sure they are coated with flour, this keeps them from sinking. In another large bowl, mash the bananas and then mix in the rest of the wet ingredients.  Combine the wet and dry mixture, stir until combined. Don't over mix or you'll have a tough muffin! Fill the muffin tray with the batter. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Smear on a little butter and enjoy!
