Need a strawberry oatmeal muffins recipe right about now? Of course you do.
I have been craving muffins for weeks (also cookies, cake and brownies). My kids keep baking because they are bored. Oh man, it is bad around here.
I realized in working on this that I keep pairing strawberries and oatmeal. Check out my healthy strawberries oatmeal bars recipe and rhubarb strawberry crisp.
I always have oatmeal in the house in case a baking idea strikes.
I’m not sure why I like strawberries and oats but they do seem to go together. Adding fruit to any kind of muffin is an easy way to use a natural sweetener versus more sugar.
Using oats is an easy way to add a whole grain to anything. I happen to love oats in my baked goods.
In these muffins, I combine fruit, sugar, white flour and oats to get a delicious muffin that still can be called relatively healthy.
You can’t buy a muffin that is 135 calories. Trust me, I have tried.
I do love muffins and have been shocked when I see the calorie amounts on my favorites around town.
Really, Starbucks? 480 calories of muffin?
These disappeared in my house in no time and I had to fight people off to get any muffins. It was ugly.
Using non-fat Greek yogurt ensure that the muffins are moist without having to use butter or more oil. It does work.
I find that if I make a muffin that is 100% whole wheat, very little sugar, and only yogurt – it turns out rubbery and not good. Perhaps I am too used to fluffy baked goods.
Have you tried substitutions in your baked goods? How did they turn out?
Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

1 cup whole oats (or quick cooking)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix oats, sugar, Greek yogurt, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla until combined. Add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix. Fold in strawberries.
