Hello & Happy Monday!!




Let me just start off by saying that less than a month ago, I wasn’t even 100% sure what a “currant” actually was lol.. 


Today, I currently LOVE red currants…. (see what I did there)




Currants come in a variety of colors (red,black,white, and gooseberries ), but I decided to explore red currants!! Something about their appearance is reminscent of Christmas, but this particular fruit pairs well with any holiday and any season for that matter!






I’ve never been a muffin person as I find them to be more of a dessert rather than something you enjoy with coffee aka “breakfast” lol, but THESE muffins.. offer a light tart flavor and of course.. 


a gorgeous aPpearance!!



If you’re looking to impress your guests or simply want to spruce op your everyday muffin routine, 

..Currants are the answer!!

What I love about this recipe: 


– Softest muffins on the block

– almond like

– hint of tartness

– light but filling

AMAZING WITH BUTTER (but what isn’t lol)
