Strawberry Oat and Yogurt Muffins

September has officially arrived and I must confess: I am thrilled! As much as I love summer, there is no denying that fall is my favorite time of the year. The season is full of celebrations including our 9th wedding anniversary and son’s 3rd birthday. It also means brisk walks around the lake, fall foliage in Northern Michigan and the unofficial kick-off of baking season.

Whether you are looking for a healthy back-to-school treat to pack in lunch boxes or an afternoon snack to give your little ones, these Strawberry Oatmeal Yogurt Muffins will hit the spot.

Packed with juicy California strawberries, whole grain oats, and protein-rich yogurt, I guarantee no one will notice the lack of butter and bleached white flour. I like baking a big batch on Sunday and storing them in a resealable plastic bag in the fridge for easy snacks or an on-the-go breakfast for my husband.

Even though summer is winding down, with year-round availability and a 12-month growing season, California strawberries are a nutritious and versatile fruit to enjoy every day.

In fact, I learned during my California Strawberries Farm Tour earlier this year that 8 strawberries contain more vitamin C than an orange. Low in sugar, with only about 50 calories, strawberries are a great source of fiber, folate, and potassium.

    I made these this morning and they were delicious! I didn’t have strawberries but did have frozen peaches, so I used those and added 1/2 tsp ginger in addition to the cinnamon. I found the mixture pretty dry and hard to mix, so I added milk 1 T at a time until it came together. The end product was fine moisture-wise; it was only the mixing step that was tricky. I look forward to making them again!
