Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

oatmeal cookies-48

Spring is officially here and I couldn’t be happier! Is it just me, or did it seem like an especially long winter?! Either way, I’m glad it’s time for some spring baking. I personally love to add lemon to much of my spring baking. Instead of doing classic lemon crumb muffins, I decided it would be more fun to put a spin on them and create a strawberry lemonade inspired version. They’re perfect for brunch, high tea, showers, luncheons, and any regular day of the week. They would also be a great spring bake sale item, since they travel and package especially well! Whenever you decide to make them, I hope you take a moment to pause and enjoy!
