Strawberry Basil Muffins
A few months ago, my husband and I started making (and compulsively eating) a strawberry basil oatmeal (recipe coming soon!). So when I saw Amanda (from Kevin and Amanda) post these Strawberry Basil Muffins on instagram this morning, I was desperate to recreate them at home.
This recipe is simply my trusty, rusty Betty muffin recipe with added strawberries and chopped fresh basil. I used whole wheat flour in these (although all purpose would work just fine as well), and the result was a dense yet soft, moist, and subtly sweet muffin! I added sanding sugar to the top of the muffins, which I would highly recommend since these muffins aren’t overly sweet. And a little softened salted butter spread over top made them just about perfect.
Note: the batter is very thick and lumpy– don’t let that scare you! They’ll still puff up beautifully and bake into soft, golden muffins.
