There is never a bad time for a muffin and these strawberry ones are to die for! Perfectly light and moist, they are the perfect homemade baked goods.

I’ve been baking like crazy these last few weeks. I’ve made this banana bread recipe 3 times in one week and these strawberry muffins have been on repeat as well. The one thing I love about this recipe is the secret, not so secret, healthy ingredient I’ve added to this recipe, Greek Yogurt!

Using Greek yogurt in a baking recipe in place of butter, well some of the butter, helps keep the muffin moist and delicious. Greek Yogurt is a little healthier as it has less fat and calories than butter.

I chose to play around with the ratios of this strawberry muffin recipe and realized that these muffins would benefit with just a little bit of butter (for flavor) and Greek Yogurt (for tang and moisture).

How long do they keep?

Once the muffins have cooled completely, transfer them to an airtight container. They will keep for a couple of days at room temperature, but if you store them in the fridge they will be good for up to a week.

Can you freeze them?

Homemade strawberry muffins freeze really well. Let them cool completely and then wrap them in foil and place in a freezer bag or container. They will keep well for up to 3 months.

You can thaw frozen muffins at room temperature, or heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds or in an oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes.

Can you use frozen strawberries?

Yes, you can use frozen strawberries if that’s what you have. Prepare them in the same way and be sure to coat them in the flour to help absorb the moisture and make sure they don’t sink.
