So far we’ve made corn muffins, blueberry muffins, carrot muffins, banana nut muffins and craisin muffins. Would this world be complete if we hadn’t made strawberry muffins? No way! This super easy strawberry muffin recipe starts with (you guessed it) Trader Joe’s Multigrain Pancake Mix as the base. They are super healthy and not overly sweet but a very nice treat none-the-less!
