One of my favorite things is waking up in the morning to fresh, warm, homemade muffins. Today I wanted to make some delicious spring themed Paleo Strawberry Muffins! These guys are gluten free, grain free, low carb, and low sugar! And still tastes delicious! The sweetness of the fresh strawberries baked in gives each bite a sweet pleasant surprise. These muffins perfect for those spring and summer mornings!

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
