Double Berry Rose Muffins

Double Berry Rose Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #muffin #recipe

I knew I wanted to make something special with the “strawberry rose sauce” I was left with after making the Strawberry Rose Italian Cream Sodas. I woke up the next morning and had this craving for muffins, so I decided to make some.

For a recipe, I started with my favorite banana bread recipe and simply substituted the strawberry rose sauce for the bananas (cutting down on the sugar because the sauce is quite sweet). The batter turned a beautiful pink color and my house smelled heavenly with the scent of roses and berries as the muffins were baking. When I told my daughter I’d made her berry rose muffins, she got this HUGE smile on her face and she went and got one right away. She totally loved them.

This single batch of muffins got shared several times over: my daughter and I ate four, I took four to my yoga teacher/friend and she shared hers with her friend who is dying but just got moved out of the hospice (because he wasn’t dying fast enough … so sad), and then I took the rest to the lake to share with my other friend and her son. I hope they brought a little ray of sunshine to everyone who tasted them. They definitely brought joy to my heart.
