Why this recipe works

This Healthy Strawberry Muffins recipe is a great for breakfast.

Another way you can rev up your breakfast is by putting dabs of yogurt on this strawberry muffins recipe instead of butter. A much smarter choice, don’t you think?

It doesn’t have to be strawberry yogurt either! Try another flavor that you think will go with strawberry yogurt muffins like lemon or peach yogurt.

Gluten free muffins the whole family will love

Often you have one member of the family who’s gluten free. And you find yourself cooking one treat for them and something for the rest of the family.

Well, no need with these Healthy Strawberry muffins. These gluten free muffins are so yummy that the whole family will be asking for more!

This strawberry muffins recipe is also super easy to bake up. The only special ingredient you need is one of your favorite gluten free all purpose flours like Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

This is my favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour and cooks up just like regular flour.

This type of gluten-free flour blend has white rice flour, xanthan gum, potato starch, etc. so it bakes up exactly right and you don’t have to buy extra specialty ingredients.

How to measure flour

Don’t scoop the flour directly out of the bag with a measuring cup. It packs down the flour and you end up over measuring. Too much flour means your muffins may come out too dry.

Instead, spoon the flour from the bag (or the container you keep your flour in) into your measuring cup. Then use the back of a spatula or knife to level off the top of the cup.

That way the flour is given a mini-sift and isn't packed down.

Measure any type of flour this way – regular flour, whole wheat flour, oat flour, gluten free all-purpose flour, etc.

These healthy strawberry muffins aren’t just for breakfast

Tips for making this recipe for strawberry yogurt muffins

You must use cupcake liners with this muffin recipe as these gluten free muffins will stick to the muffin pan if you don’t.

A good alternative are silicon cupcake liners or a silicon muffin baking pans so you can “pop out” the muffins. Both work great!

Can you make sugar free muffins?

I used monk fruit powder, a natural no calorie sweetener, in these muffins.

You can also use Swerve Sweetener, another natural no calorie sweetener.

If you’re not worried about calories, regular sugar is fine.

Fresh or frozen strawberries?

You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. Either will work well with this recipe.

If using frozen strawberries, there’s no need to defrost them.I find sliced frozen strawberries easier to chop.

Make sure you chop up the strawberries into small pieces. Strawberries hold a lot of moisture and will make the strawberry muffins mushy if they’re too big.

Can I freeze strawberry muffins?

Freeze the muffins in small batches for breakfasts, snacks, or lunches.

Make a double back and freeze half of the muffins for later.

Place muffins in a freezer-safe bag or container, remove air and label. Store for up to 3 months in the freezer.

To thaw, place on the counter for several hours.
