Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins ~ #MuffinMonday

Happy Monday! This week we have a big burst of bright flavors. I have for you a strawberry lemon yogurt muffin. It’s full of juicy, red strawberries, lemon yogurt, lemon juice and lemon zest! You might think all that lemon would overpower the strawberries but it doesn’t. The two are a great combination and the lemon really enhances the sweetness of the strawberries. I had actually never had strawberries in a muffin before. I actually had contemplated using a different fruit all together. I’m so glad I didn’t change that part of this recipe!

As always, my favorite thing about muffins are that they come together in a snap and 20 minutes later you have a wonderful treat. These muffins are the perfect way to start any morning. They are just happy little muffins that will delight your taste buds.
