Ingredients & Variations

Batter – The best muffins start with the best ingredients! Choose large eggs, whole-fat dairy, and real butter! Greek yogurt can be used instead of sour cream or swap out the cinnamon for cinnamon sugar, or a multi-purpose apple spice blend.

Strawberries – Frozen strawberries can be used once they are thawed, but fresh berries are always best. A combination of strawberries and rhubarb can be used in this recipe or try raspberries or blackberries.

Toppings – Not required, but these toppings make strawberry muffins a little more ‘extra’! Sprinkle on some oatmeal with chocolate chips before baking or serve with whipped strawberry butter.

How to Make Strawberry Muffins

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl & wet ingredients in another bowl.
  2. Gently toss strawberries in the flour mixture & make a well in the center.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the center of the dry ingredients & mix until just moistened.
  4. Divide the batter into the prepared muffin tin & bake (per the recipe below).
  5. Remove & cool on a wire rack.
