Thanks to galpal Katie for sharing her favorite strawberry recipe!
Katie's Own Strawberry Muffins Serves: 16-20
1/2 c canola oil
1 3/4 c whole wheat flour
1 c milk
1 3/4 c regular flour
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
1/4 t nutmeg
1 t salt
2 T ground flax seed (optional)
4 t baking powder
2 c finely chopped strawberries
1 c sugar
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In small bowl, combine oil, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Beat lightly. In large bowl, mix flours, flax seed, spices, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Toss in strawberries and stir to coat with flour. Pour in milk mixture and stir together.
- Fill muffin cups lined with paper liners. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until tops bounce back from the touch. Cool 10 mins and remove from pans.
Tips & Tricks from Katie:
*Easy to double, and extras freeze well.
*Play with the spices to suit your personal taste.
*You can either chop the strawberries finely by hand or gently mash them. Key is to have pieces that aren't too big or the muffins can have raw dough.
*Can also use all regular flour instead of half whole wheat.
