Very nice! I used frozen strawberries that i thawed in the microwave then drained. I also added 1/2 a chopped banana to the batter. I made my muffins a little bigger, getting 9. I also only used 1 cup sugar in the whole recipe and I melted 2 1/2 tbsps light 'I cant believe its not butter' spread for the 3 tbsps butter. I will maek these again!

- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
