Lemon-filled Strawberry Muffins & I love my mom. I love the month of May (and not just because it ends with my birthday). It’s the month that I start truly believing that summer does exist and winter did not in fact kill it. It’s the month that flowers and foliage decorate the great outdoors. It’s the month that strawberries tiptoe into market and surprise us all over again with their sweet, juicy goodness. And of course, it’s the month where we devote a day to honoring mothers – those remarkable women who had the strength to bring us into the world, the patience to raise us and the love to carry us forward. I am very blessed to have amazing women in my life to guide and support me. Thank you to Mom, Meme, Michel, Nana and Grandma Hunt for being the loving and inspiring women that you are.

These delicious little treats were the second batch of muffins I made after the first batch ended up too soggy. They were very tasty, but I think that the carrot shreds have more water content than I gave them credit for, so the second time around I decided to add in some finely shredded coconut, since coconut is known to soak up moisture in recipes. You could also give coconut flour a try, but I am not sure if you would want the full 1/2 cup. Experiment. The coconut flavor is subtle but it really compliments the rest of the flavors in this muffin quite nicely.

These muffins had one sole purpose and that was to get rid of a can of sweet potato puree that had been sitting in my pantry for about 2 years, expired by 5 months.

I actually find muffins kind of difficult to get right on the first shot, so I was pretty surprised when these ended up turning out exactly how I had envisioned them.
