Fresh Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins

Moist, fruity and chocolaty, these fresh strawberry and white chocolate muffins are the best way to start your day! So deliciously good!

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!

Strawberry Muffins

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 brings 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!

Strawberry Muffins

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? So worth the extra calories!!!

Strawberry Muffins

FOR FULL RECIPE & INSTRUCTIONS, SEE THE RECIPE CARD BELOW.

INGREDIENTS for FRESH STRAWBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS

  • All-purpose Flour
  • Sugar (you can use either white or brown or a mix of the two – I used half of each)
  • Baking Powder (make sure they are not expired so check the date)
  • Salt
  • Eggs (room temperature)
  • Yogurt (may be replaced with sour cream)
  • Olive oil (light or the fruity version / regular vegetable oil will also do if you cannot find the light olive oil)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Fresh Strawberries, diced
  • White Chocolate Chips (or chopped up white chocolate bar)

Procedure 

Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line your muffin pan with paper cups or use non-stick silicone 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 and mix everything together.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Stir to combine. 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!

Ingredients
 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar (you can use either white or brown or a mix of the two – I used half of each)*
  • 1 cup (8 oz) Yogurt
  • cup olive oil (light or the fruity version / regular vegetable oil will also do, if you cannot find the light or fruity olive oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cups fresh Strawberries, cleaned and diced
  • ½-¾ cup white chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line your muffin pan with paper cups. I use a silicone flexible muffin tray which is non-stick so there was no need for liners.
    In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl whisk the eggs together until combined. Add the sugar, yogurt, oil, and vanilla extract then mix everything well.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. 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.

Notes

TIPS & TRICKS
My silicone muffin tray is pretty deep and makes large-ish muffins so it makes 12 muffins exactly but if your mufin tray is smaller or shallower you may need an extra tray and bake up to 16 muffins instead. Simply adjust accordingly.

          Yes, they can be frozen but if you’re selling them perhaps it’s best that they’re freshly made – just my opinion. Enjoy!

    You totally had me when you took the photo of the muffine with the view inside! *drool hehe I'm such a sucker for muffins! I usually do not make it as perfect as these though.. I had a thought though Ms. Abby! I hope you did some strawberry shortcake during your frenzy! I'd love to see one that you make. Its my favorite!

  3. April 26, 2013 / 10:47 am

    I do love the strawberries at this time of year also! These muffins look really delicious. Thank you for sharing with Foodie Friends Friday. I will be sharing them on my Facebook page this morning! 🙂

  4. April 26, 2013 / 7:38 pm

    These look so fresh and inviting, Abby! I'm all about strawberries right now…can't get enough! I'd love one of these right now with an afternoon cup of coffee! Have a great weekend!

    • August 22, 2013 / 7:10 pm

  7. April 29, 2013 / 3:37 pm

    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.

  8. May 10, 2013 / 7:16 am

    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!

  10. May 28, 2013 / 3:17 pm

    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!

  13. August 25, 2013 / 7:02 pm

    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!

    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

    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!

    • April 8, 2016 / 5:56 pm

      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!

  19. April 7, 2016 / 8:14 pm

    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!

    • April 7, 2016 / 11:51 pm

    Can you make these with frozen strawberries? We don’t have fresh strawberries here in Illinois.

    • abigail

      January 16, 2019 / 1:32 pm

      Just adjust the baking time because frozen strawberries have extra moisture and you don’t want to end up with a soggy mess. I live in CT but I still find some fresh strawberries so if that’s available in your grocery, fresh is better. Thanks for asking.

    I have a dumb question….on the sugar and the yogurt ingredients, you have 1 cup 1 cup….is that a typo, or is the quantity 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of yogurt. That seems like an awful lot.

      Hi Maureen, I was probably having a technical glitch (meaning that corrections didn’t update properly when I made them) which happens sometimes but glad you caught it. Updated it now and hopefully this time, it sticks. Anyway, it should just be 1 cup for both. Thanks!

      I made them using a lemon oil in place of the fruity oil, as I usually choose blood orange oil for this particular recipe. For the yogurt i used 2 small tubs of Oikos strawberry yogurt, a tad over the 8 oz, called for. They were excellent. This is my favorite fruit muffin recipe by far.

      If properly stored, freshly-baked muffins will last for up 2 days at normal room temperature. I haven’t gone beyond that because it’s always all gone quick in our house. If you want it to last longer, place in the fridge or freeze and simply microwave to heat up.

      If it’s just overnight it should still be good at room temperature but if you’re storing it beyond that, to retain freshness, better to place muffins in an airtight container and refrigerate. You can also simply warm muffins briefly in a microwave before eating them, if you like.

    SO YUMMY! I made these last weekend and they were a hit with my hungry boys. We are not huge fans of white chocolate, so I simply left them out and then added a bit more sugar (1/4 cup) as suggested since the strawberries were tart. They were just perfect. This recipe is a keeper!
