Banana Jam Muffins

It’s my baby girl’s 1st birthday today. She’s my little muffin and she just so happens to love muffins so I decided we’d make her banana muffins with a surprise inside.

These little cuties were filled with strawberry jam and they made my little cutie very happy.

My big guy decided to invent “muffins on a stick.” Hilarious. We ate breakfast in our jammies and talked about the day the baby was born – which feels like just yesterday but was an entire year ago. They grow up too fast!

Happy birthday to the sweetest little muffin on the planet.

    This recipe works perfectly fine with gluten-free flour. I’m not a muffin person, but these muffins turned out amazing, although I used a different jam, strawberry would be way too sweet for me.
