Strawberry Banana Muffins with Thrive Life
Lately I’ve been experimenting with Thrive Life and trying to incorporate it more into my daily cooking. It all started a few months back when I had a craving for some chocolate pudding with strawberries. It was the perfect place to try Thrive Life freeze dried strawberry slices. I broke them up, mixed them in, and let the pudding rehydrate them. It was soooo good! Since then I’ve become a scientist in the kitchen, finding ways to use Thrive Life fruits in all sorts of ways.
One of the best ways I’ve used the strawberries has got to be when I mixed them into my Grandma Helen’s banana bread recipe (we all know how good that recipe is). I decided to turn it into strawberry banana muffins this time, so I just pulverized a handful of strawberries, threw them into the batter before baking and – VOILA! – a masterpiece that my kids and I both love! I couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you, so here it is!
