Strawberry Muffin Recipe Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this strawberry muffin recipe:

  • Fresh strawberries, of course! Dice them into little 1/4-inch pieces.
  • All-purpose and whole wheat flours – I love using this combination in baking recipes. It makes the muffins wholesome, but still tender and fluffy. – I turn to almond flour whenever I want to make really moist, tender quick breads or muffins. Just like in my banana bread and blueberry muffin recipes, it perfects the texture of these strawberry muffins.
  • Baking powder and eggs – They help the muffins puff up as they bake.
  • Sea salt – Don’t skip it! Even though these muffins are sweet, the salt is necessary to make the spiced strawberry flavor pop. – Or any milk you keep on hand. Homemade oat milk would be great here too!
  • Extra-virgin olive oil – Feel free to substitute a neutral oil if you prefer, such as vegetable oil, grapeseed oil, or avocado oil.
  • Cane sugar – For sweetness.
  • Cinnamon and vanilla extract – They fill the muffins with warm depth of flavor.

Frozen vs. Fresh Strawberries:

Fresh strawberries will produce the best results in this recipe. However, you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries.

Generally speaking, you can use fresh or frozen berries pretty interchangeably when baking cakes, muffins, and cookies. Frozen berries will lower the temperature of the baked goods and may require up to an additional 5 minutes of baking time.

I have also noticed that frozen berries release more moisture than fresh berries. I always recommend reducing the liquid just a bit, in this case – milk – to prevent the recipe from becoming too “wet”.

For this recipe, I recommend reducing the milk to 3/4 cup rather than 1 cup if using frozen berries.

How to Make Strawberry Muffins

These strawberry muffins are easy to make, so you can enjoy them anytime you are craving one! To make the muffins, line a muffin tin (or two) with liners. (This recipe made 14 muffins.) In a large bowl, add the cold butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Using your hands, cover the butter with the flour mixture and start breaking down each cube until you have a crumbly mixture.

Next, in a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk and eggs. Mix these ingredients together and pour over the butter mixture. Stir until just incorporated. Then, gently fold in the strawberries. Fill each lined muffin cup about 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, with no wet batter.

Let the muffins cool in the muffin tin(s) for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Store them in an airtight container for up to two days. To freeze the muffins, let them cool completely before placing them in the freezer for about an hour. Remove them from the freezer and store them in a freezer-safe container. Be sure to label and date the container.

  • 3 Eggs, large

  6. Stir in strawberries.

  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 3 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 18 (1/2-cup) muffin cups with paper liners.

Whisk applesauce, sugar and oil in a large bowl. Add flour, baking soda and salt whisk until combined. Gently fold in strawberries. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.

Bake the muffins until the tops spring back when touched lightly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 28 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Tips for Homemade Muffins

  • This is an easy homemade muffin recipe that you can really mix up to it your own. The base is slightly sweet and very good on its own. You can mix in other berries, add mini chocolate chips to this recipe, use cinnamon chips or white chocolate chips…so many options to make this base recipe into something else.
  • When making muffins be very careful not to over mix the batter. You want to stop mixing once the flour is just incorporated into the batter or your muffins will be tough and not nearly as tender.
  • Muffins are great to freeze, we always have them in the freezer for quick breakfasts or treats in lunch boxes.
  • To fill muffin tins, use an ice cream scoop. This way they will be even and you won’t have dribbles of batter all over your muffin tray.

In the summer strawberries are everywhere. When we lived in the Midwest we would go pick pounds and pounds of them and bake and cook for days! They just scream summer! So if you are entertaining, or just want to enjoy summer these muffins should be added to your list to make.
