STRAWBERRY AND ALMOND MUFFINS

Its almost june ending, days are moving fast. In the month starting when I saw the events I think ohh there is time for the last date, then one fine day I realize that there is only two day s left for the event and I run for that. I cook for the event before but I am little lazy to post the recipe hummmmm. This time also happened some thing like that only. When I saw the Strawberry event I wanted to post some yummy recipes for my favorite fruit event, and mmmmm lazy lazy lazy what to do.

And then yesterday I decided to make this muffins recipe which I got from

Hooked on heat blog, and I wanted to try this for both events. Ok I through my lazyness in to the trash and started working, I shifted the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and mashed the banana, made the sugar and butter cream chopped the strawberry s and almonds. And mixed the batter and switch on my gas oven to pre heat and I spoon the batter in to greased muffin moulds and kept them in the pre heated oven and nicely chatting with Lubna and after 15 min. I realize that there is no aroma from my oven so I ran to check the oven and a BIG DAAAAAM gas is over…… tusssssssss dhammmal what to do? I call that gas fellow and ordered the gas and that fellow replied me that he can bring the cylinder in the evening only I requested that fellow and he told me let me try. I ask lubna (she is chatting with me that time) she told me to keep the muffin tray in the fridge but by that time muffins already little raised, I was thinking what to do. And there is a bang on my door it is that gas fellow that’s it I jumped and fix the gas and started heating oven and baked my muffins OMG I am tired.Aaaaaaaaaaaahhh this is my strawberry muffin story. They tasted just awesome. In the original recipe she made them with eggs, I made them egg less with flex seed powder. And here I go with the recipe………….
