It finally feels like spring in Atlanta and for me that means strawberry season. Bursting with flavor and packed with nutrition, strawberries have a lot to offer. Since they are abundant right now, I’m sharing the nutrition benefits of strawberries and my Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins recipe on the KitchenAid blog today.

With whole oats, fresh strawberries and a secret ingredient to keep them super moist, these healthy breakfast muffins are a satisfying morning treat.

Though the recipe can be adapted for special diets, these muffins are easy to make – no special flours, oils or seeds. They are also freezer-friendly. I made these a few weeks ago, and put a couple batches in the freezer. I’m still happily enjoying one for a snack or quick breakfast every now and then.

Enough with the teaser… Get the recipe below and everything you want to know about strawberries over on the KitchenAid blog today!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (can sub up to ½ cup whole wheat or almond flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup oil (grapeseed, melted coconut, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. Using the “bake” setting with convection on, preheat your KitchenAid® 12” Convection Digital Countertop Oven to 400°F*. Lightly spray or grease the muffin tin. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats and buttermilk to soak 15 minutes. In a second bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Stir the oil, egg, brown sugar and vanilla into the soaked oat mixture. Add dry ingredients. Stir just until combined. Do not overmix. Gently fold strawberries into the batter.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Bake 12 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven. Let the muffins cool in the pan 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. These muffins are best served warm but also freeze and reheat well.
Cuisine: American | Recipe Type: Breakfast

Notes

I don’t recommend using paper muffin cups in this recipe. Baking directly on the muffin tin produced the best results – keeping the moisture in and creating a nice crust on the outside.

* If you are using a standard (non convection) oven, preheat the oven to 400°F and cook 18-20 minutes.

    These look like my kind of muffin, Marisa! Not too sweet nor too much fat. Love the fruit and oats.

      Thanks, Judy! I rarely bake but I was very pleased with how these turned out. The buttermilk really adds something special to the entire thing!
