The combination of mouth-watering lemons and perfectly ripe strawberries make these muffins so refreshing and light. Feel free to sub the strawberries for any other berry you like such as blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. I love making a batch of these in the summer to have with breakfast or lunch throughout the week. Since they are mostly carbohydrates enjoy them with some protein and a little fat to keep your blood sugar stable and balance your meal.
