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. Additional benefits of the health benefits of strawberries can be found here.

  1. Here are my muffins. I did not have whole wheat pastry flour, so I used whole wheat flour minus 1T and 1 tsp. I am allergic to coconut, so I used butter in place of the coconut oil. The only plain yogurt I had in the house was no-fat greek yogurt. Even with my substitutions, they turned out delicious!

  2. These look delicious! I currently have white whole wheat flour on hand and am wondering if that can be substituted for the pastry flour? Thanks!
