Strawberry Muffins!

It is strawberry season in North Carolina and this has to be one of my favorite times of the year. I went strawberry picking with a friend of mine yesterday. There's nothing quite like a sunny day, ripe strawberries, and 2 babies trying to eat strawberries. Having Aubrey in her front carrier was an added bonus (yay for 20# front squats!). I whipped up these muffins for breakfast this morning.

Strawberry Muffins
3 eggs
1/4 c grapeseed oil
1/4 c agave nectar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 c almond flour
2 c diced strawberries

1. In a large bowl whisk eggs.
2. Add oil, agave, vanilla, salt and soda. Whisk well.
3. Add vinegar, mix, and allow to sit for a couple of minutes (this will help activate the baking soda).
4. Stir in almond flour.
5. Fold in strawberries.
6. Place heaping tablespoons into a lined muffin tin.
7. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

*** Alternate version***
Keep everything the same except use only 3 tbsp agave and add 2 tbsp coconut flour. This makes a denser, less moist muffin.
