Strawberry Wheat Germ Muffins

If you’re looking for a wholesome, moist, and delicious breakfast muffin – this one fits the bill!

I recently made muffins for a friend of mine who gave birth and as I was baking my 3 year old asked meif she can have a one of the muffins. 

I was sad to tell her she can’t because it that particular recipe had eggs in it, but I promised her I’d make her a batch she can eat without eggs! 

It took me 5 batches of recipe testing this Strawberry Wheat Germ Muffins to get it right and good enough to share on the blog (although my 3 year old happily ate from all 3 batches) – but I finally nailed it! 

So excited to share this recipe with you! Its a great option for a grab-n-go breakfast or snack! Enjoy!
