Strawberry Goji Berry Banana Paleo Muffins!

January 24, 2015

These strawberry-goji berry-banana muffins are a healthy, paleo treat that the whole family can enjoy.  My son loves strawberries but won’t touch other berries so I decided to grind up frozen strawberries with some goji berries to make this antioxidant muffin!  He didn’t even notice either of the berries and loved them.  These are grain free, gluten free, starch free and full of protein and antioxidants.  I love making them on Sunday morning so I have an easy go to breakfast during the week.  Enjoy!
