Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins Recipe: Can't Go Wrong

I have been craving muffins for weeks (also cookies, cake and brownies). My kids keep baking because they are bored. Oh man, it is bad around here.

I realized in working on this that I keep pairing strawberries and oatmeal. Check out my healthy strawberries oatmeal bars recipe and rhubarb strawberry crisp.

I always have oatmeal in the house in case a baking idea strikes.

I’m not sure why I like strawberries and oats but they do seem to go together. Adding fruit to any kind of muffin is an easy way to use a natural sweetener versus more sugar.

Using oats is an easy way to add a whole grain to anything. I happen to love oats in my baked goods.

In these muffins, I combine fruit, sugar, white flour and oats to get a delicious muffin that still can be called relatively healthy.

You can’t buy a muffin that is 135 calories. Trust me, I have tried.

I do love muffins and have been shocked when I see the calorie amounts on my favorites around town.

Really, Starbucks? 480 calories of muffin?

These disappeared in my house in no time and I had to fight people off to get any muffins. It was ugly.

Using non-fat Greek yogurt ensure that the muffins are moist without having to use butter or more oil. It does work.

I find that if I make a muffin that is 100% whole wheat, very little sugar, and only yogurt - it turns out rubbery and not good. Perhaps I am too used to fluffy baked goods.

Have you tried substitutions in your baked goods? How did they turn out?

Made these this morning! Wonderful muffins! I did use 1/2 c whole wheat pastry flour and 1/2 c all purpose white flour. The texture was great....not the chewy odd 100% ww flour texture. I used McCann’s quick oats.

Hi there. How much batter is in each muffin liner?

@Cheryl - I filled it almost to the top (please see photo above in the post). I didn't measure how many ounces it is - but just divide the dough among 12 muffin cups. Thanks for your question!


This sounds really good, but l don't have any fresh strawberries right now. Do you think it would work as well with blueberries?


Did you use fresh strawberries?

Would thawed frozen strawberries work?

I'm also thinking blueberries or peaches would be really good as well!

I do think the recipe would work with thawed blueberries or strawberries. I did use fresh but I think frozen would be fine. Just ensure that they are not too soggy. Great questions!

What a keeper! Only complaint is that I ate too fast - they were that good! Made a half batch easily cutting all ingredients in half except the egg so mine were a bit more cake like.

Can’t wait to try with assorted frozen/thawed fruits too. This is going to be a regular in our house!

Just found your site this week and tried this recipe. Definite keeper!! These are so good. I plan on trying these with blueberries and apples as well (with a little cinnamon added). I'm looking forward to looking at the other recipes you have posted and trying them as well!


I make a pumpkin cranberry spice bread that makes 2 large loaves or 5-6 small loaves. The original recipe called for 3 cups of sugar and I reduced the sugar to 1-1/3 cups. The recipe called for a 1cup vegetable oil which I reduced to 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. The 3 cups of white flour was converted to 2 cups white flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour. I make this at Christmas time for my job & it is eaten right up.



I’ve been trying to substitute applesauce for vegetable oil when I can. Do you think that would work with these strawberry muffins? Do you think the flavors would clash?

I make a pumpkin cranberry spice bread and I use half applesauce and half oil. It comes out very moist. Everyone at my job loves it.

I also like the combination of strawberries and oats. Any berry and oat combination is good.

Substitutions in baked goods? I have always successfully substituted eggs or oil with equal amounts of banana OR applesauce OR canned pumpkin. Applesauce is very neutral. Banana or pumpkin can change the flavor so decide which is the best substitution for your recipe.

If you substitute applesauce, does that replace both oil and egg?

WW has changed their program yet again. They are no longer on the purple, green and blue plan !!!


Ca these be stored on countertop, or do they need to be refrigerated?
