Healthy Strawberry Muffins

Title image

Hi.  My name is Carol and I am a strawberry addict.

Now, that I have that off my chest, I have to say there is nothing I love more than a good strawberry!  Oozing red juice dripping down my chin was my favorite accessory growing up as a kid.  I can still remember going strawberry picking with my Grammie as a little girl and eating more strawberries than what I actually put into my basket!  Once, I even ate so many I got a rash...seriously!  That was the level my obsession got to, haha!

Two muffins and some strawberries

Of all the recipes I have made with strawberries- Strawberry & Rhubarb jam. Strawberry Shortcake, even Strawberry Chicken Pizza- I have never once thought to make muffins!  It just never crossed my mind, but when I saw a friend post a picture of some she had just made, I knew I needed to try it out!  I mean, I am not one to pass on a good strawberry recipe!!

As many of you know, I've recently switched to baking with whole wheat flour and unrefined sugars.  Though I love whole wheat flour, it can be a bit dry and hard to enjoy.  Then I found it: White Whole Wheat PASTRY Flour!  It. Has. Changed. My. Life!!  Seriously!  I will never bake again with plain whole wheat flour.  (Okay, that's a bit harsh, but I will be using it less and less!!)  I bought mine from Whole Foods, but you can certainly purchase it here.

The muffins came out light, fluffy, and super moist!  These will not last long in this {recovering} strawberry addicts home!
