This Healthy Strawberry Muffins recipe is a great way to start your day.

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.

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!

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.

I used monk fruit powder, a natural no calorie sweetener, in these muffins. If you’re not worried about calories, regular sugar is fine.
