Strawberry Muffins


Some girls daydream about being on the beach.

Some girls daydream about their weddings.

Some girls daydream about their future careers...

and I daydream about food. Not even eating it, just making it.

Lately these daydreams have been filled with lemon and citrus, avocados, always chocolate, vegan caramel, and strawberries. I decided to make the last fantasy a reality. A delicious, delicious reality. That's right, these are double-delicious.


Strawberry Muffins

makes a dozen muffins

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp soy milk
1/2 cup soy yogurt (could also substitute applesauce)
2 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup agave
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped strawberries

1. Preheat your oven to 375ยบ and line a muffin tin.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy milk, yogurt, oil, agave and vanilla. Stir in the flour and baking powder until just combined. Fold in the strawberries.
3. Divide the batter evenly into 12 muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy!

  4. What a beautiful, simple and healthy muffin recipe. Stunning photos -- makes me think of Paris or some where equally as romantic. I can't wait for strawberries to show up in my market.

  7. The two top things I dream about:
    1. FOOD - always thinking about food
    2. My dream home - from the design, curb appeal, kitchen to library down to exactly how everything will feel and look

    I love double delicous muffins and I love how you styled them!

    just tried making them (with veg oil instead of canola) but they were kinda wet inside .. are they supposed to be like this or did i do something wrong? there's a chance i messed up the measurements as i tried to convert everything from cups into tablespoons and/or ml (i'm in the uk) .. any advice? :)

    1. They should be slightly moist because of the strawberries, but they should not be wet! Are you sure they were cooked for long enough? Some people have varying oven times. I'm not very good at conversions, but it is possible something went a little off there, also. Sorry they didn't quite work out!

  13. It looked like such a lovely recipe, but I just tried baking them and they turned out super uncooked in the middle/on the bottom, I've got an oven thermometer so i don't think thats the problem, but it seems very strange...Beautiful photography and a lovely post however!

    1. Hi Caitlin! I'm sorry they didn't work out for you. I didn't have a problem with that with these muffins- the only thing I can think that would be the case is that you did not cook them for long enough. I've noticed that my oven tends to cook things a little faster than other ovens, so the toothpick trick is imperative here! Also the tops of the muffins did begin to turn golden brown before they were fully cooked, so that can be a little tricky. I hope that helps!

  14. Yippee !! I just tried cooking them awhile ago for my kids after school snack s and guess what Ruby they all finished the 15 muffins in one sitting. :) They paired it with their favorite lyche-strawberry drink.. Thank you Ruby,you're amazing for sharing this recipe. I will be making your grapefruit and yogurt scones for dessert tonight, will get in touch later for their reaction but I'm sure that they will love it. <3
