Strawberry Yoghurt Muffins

Hubby likes to buy things and not tell me. So when I went poking around the fridge this afternoon I noticed strawberries crying for help.

While strawberry daquiri immediately sprung to mind, it was only 2pm … anyhow, for the second punnet, I took the sensible option and decided to use them to make muffins for school lunchboxes this week.

Mr 9 was in the kitchen lending a hand as usual. He just loves it so much! And he’s getting used to me snapping photos of him for my blog and social media, as you can probably tell by his wry smile.

Inheriting another munchkin after nippers, I soon had all three of them circling the hot-out-of-the-oven strawberry muffins like a pack of sharks. And I kid you not, the first bite sent their eyes rolling into the back of heads and into orbit. But all good things come to an an abrupt end, and it was a case of “Sorry kids! I’m a busy lady. The rest are for lunchboxes this week!”

I hope you all enjoy them. And just a little tip, it might be worth making a double batch : )
