Recipe: Strawberry Oat Muffins

Berry season is one of my favourite times of the year and when I saw strawberries for 99 cents a punnet at my local fruit & vege shop I knew I needed to pick up a few quick smart – some for eating, some for smoothies and some for these strawberry oat muffins!

I’m a sucker for a mid-morning muffin at work and thankfully these ones aren’t super un-healthy thanks to the addition of oats & yoghurt, and only a smidge of sugar. Plus, they have fruit so that’s a good thing too!

Strawberry Oat Muffins

I slightly adapted the recipe from one I found here

Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup vanilla or plain greek yoghurt
  • 250g punnet strawberries
  • 2tsp sugar
  • 2tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1tbs baking powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 200C
  2. Combine oats and yoghurt in a large bowl and stir together
  3. Hull the strawberries and cut into small pieces then place in a bowl and sprinkle over the sugar and balsamic vinegar. Stir to mix through and set aside
  4. Add the eggs, butter, brown sugar and vanilla essence to the oat mixture and fold through
  5. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon then add to the oat mixture and fold until just combined, without over mixing
  6. Fold in the strawberries (and any excess liquid) and coconut until just combined then spoon in to 12 muffin cases
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until browned and a skewer comes out clean
  8. Enjoy!

Strawberry Oat Muffins

Thanks to the combination of the oats and yoghurt the muffins are dense without being heavy and they’re definitely not short on flavour. I won’t blame you if you can’t stop at one!
