Mini Muffins: You can make mini muffins with this recipe.  This recipe makes 24 mini muffins instead of 12 large muffins. Use a spray to coat the pan or use small paper muffin cups

Muffin Color: The color of the muffin will be determined by the type of fruit you use. Desire more red? Use only strawberries and raspberries

Frozen Berries: If you are using frozen fruit, be sure to thaw out extra because crushed fruit uses less space than whole fruit.

Freezer Ready: These muffins freeze really well if you want to enjoy them later!  Let cool and place in airtight container and freeze until ready to thaw and enjoy.
