Strawberries aren’t at their peak season, however I can’t help but love them this time of year! I think they make the perfect Valentine’s fruit, mostly because of their luscious red color but also the fact that they work well in many desserts. Strawberries also bring back fond summer memories of gorging myself on berries in the sweltering heat of my parent’s backyard, before taking a refreshing dip in their pool – and this time of year hot and summer are all I’m dreaming about. (I know I’m not the only one done with winter and ready for summer, or at least spring.)
These Paleo Strawberry Muffins use fresh, juicy strawberries and a tad bit of honey for a sweet treat that will bring back all those wonderful summer memories 😉 And if nothing else, these muffins taste great and the mixture of pinks and reds is just what you need for a healthy Valentine’s Day dessert.
These muffins are free of: grains, gluten, dairy, nuts, soy and refined sugar. They store well in the fridge for a quick grab’n go snack and best of all, are toddler approved (always a win in my book).

I think Valentine’s Day is a silly holiday, but fun none the less. I think it’s a great day to show appreciation for your loved ones, send cute cards to friends/family and of course a great excuse to bake and eat more chocolate 😉 My husband and I don’t have any plans but I made cards with my 3 year old for him to give away. It’s also my 1/2 birthday, which I only remember each year because it falls on a holiday!
Are you making anything for Valentine’s Day? Do you have any fun plans?
Be sure to tag me @realfoodrabbit if you make any of my recipes! I’d love to see and know what you think!
