Strawberry Muffins

 

 This is the first recipe my husband asked to have on a weekly basis so I defiantly think its worth sharing with you!

Just a Note: I used flax seed because I had some and didn't have many eggs left. If you didn't know 1 tablespoon ground flax seed plus 3 tablespoons water mixed produces 1 egg replacement. Pretty neat huh? However, if you have 2 eggs to spare and don't mind the little bit of extra calories (really the nutrition in the egg far out weights the calories so have no fear) add it in and skip the flax seed.
