Fresh Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins

Imagine a cold and gloomy morning and you wake up to the delicious aroma of freshly baked muffins that’s still warm and waiting just for you! What an ideal way to start the day, right? It’s not impossible and I sure have an excellent recipe for you – Fresh Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins!

I am so happy that now that it’s spring we are getting more strawberries in the store and when they abound that means you can purchase them at a very low price. Since we bought quite a lot of strawberries I have been in a Strawberry baking frenzy! Just last week I made three strawberry cakes and yesterday I made these!

There’s just something about fresh fruits and especially strawberries – they’re just so perfect for baking – not only do they impart that pretty reddish-pinkish hue to any bread, cake or muffin – they also lend it the yummiest and freshest flavor too! Each bite into these Strawberry muffins truly bring such pure delight! I thought I’ll have some for breakfast this morning but my kids love these so much, especially my little boy that when he came home from school yesterday – he ate the rest….I must confess I did have 3! Yikes…it’s that good!

If you wish to make a healthy and low-fat version, feel free to omit the chocolate chips (though you may have to add some more sugar especially if the strawberries are really tart) but my question is – why would you? 🙂

Ingredients

2 cups All-purpose Flour

1 cup sugar (you can use either
white or brown or a mix of the two – I used half of each)*

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

2 large Eggs, room temperature

1 cup / 8 oz Yogurt

1/3 cup Olive oil (light or the
fruity version)

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups fresh
Strawberries, chopped

1/2 – 3/4 cup white or regular chocolate chips

Procedure

Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line your
muffin pan with paper cups. I use the Demarle Flexipan Muffin trays .

In a large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Set
aside.

In another bowl whisk the eggs together until combined. Add the rest of the wet ingredients (yogurt, oil and vanilla) and mix together.

Pour the wet ingredients into the
dry. Mix. I use a spatula to fold in the flour and mix everything together but
you can also use a whisk. The batter would be thick.

Fold in the berries and the chocolate chips.


Divide evenly among the 12 muffin
cups. I use a large ice cream scooper for this. So handy! A full scoop per
cup is about right. There is enough batter (nearly full) for each cup,
sufficient to give your muffin a nice dome.

Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a tester comes out
clean.



Remove from the oven and after about 5-8 minutes (when it’s cool enough
to handle) transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

    I have a bunch of strawberries that are looking a little sad, I am so making these today! I may add some wholewheat flour, don't tell the kids.

    • August 22, 2013 / 7:12 pm

      You can choose the flour that you like, I will try next time to make this gluten-free! Thanks for stopping by.

    Amazing! I'll try to bake this one of these days. Great photos as well 🙂

  9. May 21, 2013 / 11:41 pm

    Thanks for this recipe.
    I made this as a cake today, rather than muffins. It's currently cooling on the rack; looks yummy! Hopefully it came out OK 🙂

    • August 22, 2013 / 7:09 pm

      Am sure it's fine….that's a wonderful idea. I should try that for next time! Thanks, Luisa!

    Sorry I hardly use yogurt for my ingredients…. May I know whether is the yogurt plain (sour) or vanilla flavour…?

    • July 6, 2013 / 11:47 am

      It's up to you. I only use plain but you can use the flavored one if you like.:-)

    Hi, I really want to make this recipe today but I don't have any olive oil. I was wondering if I could substitute margarine for it instead? And if so how much margarine would I need to get the same amount of olive oil needed originally? And do I need to melt it? Thank you so much

    • August 22, 2013 / 7:08 pm

      Hi Tammy, you can use Vegetable Oil, which is probably a better sub because you don't need to wonder how much exactly you need as it will be the same measurement as Olive oil. Thanks!

    OHHH!!! YUM!!! I am going to make this!!! Especially because it is strawberry season now here in Holland!!! I live near a strawberry farm so their produce is really fresh and sweet!!!! Thanks for posting this one!

    Greetings from Holland,

    I love this recipe, thanks for posting it. I do have a question though. I don't have any yogurt. Do you think I could substitute sour cream for the yogurt in this recipe?

    • April 30, 2014 / 10:50 pm

      Most certainly Holli. I often exchange the two, depending on which one is available. Please enjoy.

    • August 25, 2015 / 8:09 am

      Thanks, Barb! Hope you enjoy them! 🙂

  15. March 29, 2016 / 7:26 pm

    Can't wait to try this recipe looks so yummy right now.

  16. March 29, 2016 / 9:50 pm

    Can the yogourt be replaced by sour cream by chance?

  17. March 29, 2016 / 9:52 pm

    Wondering if we can replace yogourt with sour cream?

  18. April 4, 2016 / 12:35 pm

    Could this be made into a quick bread? I assume I would just bake it for about 45 minutes-1 hour?

    • April 4, 2016 / 10:48 pm

      Sure, just adjust the baking time accordingly. Please let us know how it goes Heather. Thanks!

      I made this today as a quick break with regular chocolate chips. It was really good. If making as a quick bread, I would decrease the temp to 350 and bake for about 45 minutes. I kept the temp at 400 for 45 minutes and the bottoms are a little too dark. Nothing I can't cut off or eat around. The other thing is the strawberries…I think I should have cut them even smaller than I did. I will make this again. I made some for my mom and my new neighbor. Figure it's a good housewarming gift!

    I made these last night! I knew as soon as the batter came together they were going to be AMAZING just because the batter smelled SOOOO delicious. I altered the recipe to make it vegan – substituted Ener-G egg replacer for the eggs, unsweetened coconut milk yogurt for dairy yogurt, and non-dairy semi-sweet chocolate chips for the white chips. They are sweet, moist and delicious. My husband and I polished off three each right out of the oven. I will be making this constantly during berry season! Thanks for posting!

      That is so amazing to know! Appreciate you stopping by to let us know! Enjoy!
