Strawberry Muffins

So I must admit, I'm sick of cooking. Work is getting to the point that when I get home all I want to do is sleep. And mornings are worse than the end of the day because I already have to wake up early to walk the dog and get ready for work, so breakfast is just another hassle. I decided, well, if I make smoothies in the morning then I have to deal with carrying the cup the rest of the day. My cereal eating method is too time consuming and I only eat oatmeal made stove topper, not microwaved. MUFFINS! I can pack 'em with me and throw out the wrapper. So I opened my fridge, found a box of strawberries and decided, "I should make strawberry muffins". 
Strawberry Muffins 
1 stick butter 
1/3 cup organic cane sugar 
2 cups whole wheat flour 
2 tbsp baking soda 
1 egg 
1/2 cup almond milk 
1/2 tsp vanilla 
1/2 tsp salt 1.5 cups strawberries chopped 
1 scoop protein powder 

 Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg. Add the dry ingredients slowly and then the vanilla and milk. Once combined, stir in the strawberries. Pour batter in a muffin tin and bake @400F for 25 minutes. Let cool then enjoy.
