Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

Here's the Dish

I am in LOVE with strawberries, so for my birthday, I decided to go strawberry picking! Knowing that I would soon have an abundance of fresh strawberries, I knew I had to come up with an amazing recipe that would showcase one of nature’s finest ‘desserts’! When I whipped up this muffin batter for the first time, I wasn’t sure what to expect, (or even if they would turn out!) While they were in the oven, suddenly our whole house smelled like strawberry shortcake! I could barely wait for them to cool before I tried my first bite, and I knew instantly that this recipe was going to be a hit for strawberry lovers like myself everywhere!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 30-35 Minutes.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners, (or just use a silicone muffin pan).


Place all of the ingredients (except the strawberries) in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl, and stir in strawberries. Divide remaining 1/2 cup diced strawberries over the top of each muffin. (This step is optional, but it really makes the strawberries burst with color and flavor on top of each muffin!)


Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.


Serve and enjoy!


2 1/2 cup Oats (old fashioned kind, not quick cooking)
1 cup Plain low fat greek yogurt
1/2 cupBaking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1
1 1/2 tspBaking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 1/2 cup Strawberries, diced, and patted dry + (optional 1/2 cup strawberries, diced to place on top of muffins)
Optional1 tsp lemon juice
*NoteThe paper liners don’t work well when baking with a base that does not include flour (which is the case with this recipe), they always seem to stick to the paper. If you don’t have a silicone muffin tin or liners, I recommend buying the foil cupcake liners at the store, and removing the paper inserts so you are only using the foil part of the liner! That way no sticking will occur!

1 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 8-12, or adjust according to taste.

I LOVE strawberry shortcake and can’t wait to make these! Thanks for sharing, Katie!

Also, when I first started baking brownies, I decided to bake them in muffin tins as opposed to a sheet pan. With the sheet pan, it’s a pain in the you-know-what to cut them AND try to get them out of the pan without wasting half the brownie. With a muffin tin, all of the brownies are the same size and every brownie has an “edge” (my fave part!)

At first I used the paper/foil liners – then realized I was losing half the brownie trying to rip the paper liner off. So I started using the foil liner only – what a difference! The foil peels right off and nothing is wasted! Voila!

(Just as a note, in the recipe it says stir in the strawberries (not how many) then top with the remaining, its pretty obvious of course I just thought you might like to make it a little clearer for the slow people of the world like myself :) )

Those muffins look delicious, Katie! And nice tip about the paper cups! I never knew why they didn’t work with any of my muffin recipes… they all use flour, but probably not enough of it, and probably not of the right kind either. I never user all purpose.

Say, how do the silicone cups work for you? I have silicone muffin pans and I’m not sure I like them, yet. For one, they get really sticky and messy looking because of the addition of non-stick cooking spray, it doesn’t seem to want to come off. Do you have to use the cooking spray with the cups also? They are so cute to look at, I sure would love to give them a try…

These were great! I ran out of Greek yogurt and subbed in light sour cream to make up the last 3 ounces. I also added a little flax meal to up the fiber! I loved them. My little brother and husband who are extremely picky devoured them, I had to put them in a container out of the kitchen to ensure I had some for breakfast this week!

They’re in the oven! That’s it- what you said about processing the oats first. The mixture was difficult to work in the blender, and that’s exactly what I had thought of, to do the oats first, and then stir the rest by hand. They smell good- I’ll let you know how they taste! I used egg whites and non-fat Greek yogurt!

I used a nonstick metal pan and sprayed it and aside from a few sticking points (easily loosened), I had no issues, though I think you may need to adjust cooking times–at least I did.

Dashing Dish said:

hi there! i suggest 12-15 packets stevia, that will make them pretty sweet, if that seems too sweet, start with 8 packets, and add a few at a time until batter is perfect to your taste!

i’ve tried this recipe twice, but my batter is always very pasty. i ground the oats in the food processor first, and then mixed everything together. it is thick and lumpy and stays that way when i bake it….never smooths out. they look really bumpy and hold the shape they take when i plop them into the liners. is anyone else having this problem? it seems that most people who had good results made modifications to the recipe.

Just took these out of the oven and I must admit that when I decided to make them I was a little skeptical. Never made muffins without flour or oil/butter, let alone neither of them. I have to say, they are really good. My kids are never going to suspect a thing in the morning. I didn’t have strawberries, but had some raspberries, blueberries and blackberries so I threw those in. Definitely a recipe I am keeping and using many times.

yes you could take out the yogurt and omit the sugar or omit the yogurt and replace the yogurt with banana…not sure about the taste though :) … and calories will vary depending on what you use!

I’m not trying to omit the plain yogurt- just sugar. So the options I was thinking of was 1) mashed bannanas instead of sugar 2) flavored yogurt instead of plain and omit sugar 3) honey instead of sugar. Based on consistency for baking curious your opinion on what to do.

If you want to use paper baking cups, just spray them with baking spray after you put them in the muffin tin. Solves the problem of sticking paper.

Simply wonderful! I made these for my friend who just had a baby. one thing to watch for is not over mixing the oatmeal it will turn to a paste and not be smooth. I used 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs of agave and pureed a cup of strawberries to the mix. I also diced about another cup of strawberries so that there would be chunks when you bit into the muffin.
Thank you so much for this!!

These muffins were an absolute delight and super easy to make. I did, however, have one little problem: my muffins stuck to the foil cupcake liners. Is it that I was so eager to sample my wares that I should have waited for them to cool? Is that the key to easy removal of the foil liner?

P.S. I ground up my oats in my handy chopper then combined the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mixed by hand.

I LOVE these muffins! Have made them twice. The first time, I also had trouble getting the ingredients ground enough and the batter stayed thick and lumpy. The second time, I added 1/4 cup applesauce in addition to everything else. (I’m not a baker, and it was the only thing I could think of w/o adding points, and I sliced my strawberries a little smaller.)

I did make one slight change both times… Chocolate covered strawberry muffins. As a chocoholic, I am trying to find better ways (well healthier) to incorperate a little chocolate into my day. I cut the sugar in half and added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips. AMAZING! and not 5000 empty calories

YAY for your blog, I could spend hours here. Thanks!

I just tried out the recipe and they were fantastic! I didn’t have any problems with the batter, it blended smoothly together in my food processor. I ended up using 1 6oz container of Vanilla Danon Light and Fit in place of the cup of greek yogurt, but it is delicious nonetheless. Also, I just avoided muffin liners altogether and simply sprayed my nonstick pan instead (I didn’t want to go out to buy cups). They came out perfectly! This was my first time to your site and I look forward to trying more delicious treats!

I only used 6 oz of greek yogurt and used strawberry greek yogurt since these are strawberry muffins. Then I put all the juice of the lemon in because I love lemons haha. I might’ve put some extra strawberries in because you can never go wrong with strawberries ;) came out great and can’t get enough!! Oh tip: if mixing in the blender, mix all the ingredients together by hand first so that it blends easier! I just mixed it in the blender then it’s ready to go.

I don’t understand the “1/4 cup baking tbs stevia sweetener” part. Is the “tbs” for tablespoon? Quarter cup baking tablespoon stevia sweetener? It’s probably just me, but I can’t figure out what you’re telling me here. :)

I made these the other day and (since I’m lazy) chanced not grinding the oats down. They turned out wonderful and delicious but then, I love oatmeal and granola. Still very muffin-like, even though the batter was pretty chunky.

Found this recipe on Pinterest last night and made them today! I substituted applesauce for the yogurt and used 3/4 cup sugar in a metal muffin tin, they were ready to go at 20 minutes. Next time I’m going to cut the sugar completely and add in an extra half cup of strawberries. They turned out so yummy and quite nice to look at too.

Hi! Will honey work as the sweetener?

June 28th, 2012 — 3:33pm  |  Reply

Dashing Dish said:

i’m afraid it wont, it will change the ‘wet’ to dry ratio

JM said:

You can replace the sugar substitute with honey instead. I use honey instead of sugar and sugar substitutes all the time in baking, cooking, coffee, etc.

First, honey is sweeter and denser than sugar, so you can use less of it. 3/4 cup honey replaces the sweetness of 1 cup of sugar, and I personally reduce to closer to 1/2 cup because I find it that much sweeter.

Second, although it will change the wet-to-dry ingredient ratio, simple logic would tell you this means you need to adjust your other ingredients rather than just rule honey out as a sweetener. You reduce your other wet ingredients by 1/2 cup per every cup of honey added. In this recipe, you’d probably do best to still use the two eggs, reduce your Greek yogurt to 1/2 cup, and add 1/2 to 3/4 cup honey.

Always reduce the baking temperature by about 25 degrees when using honey because it “browns” and burns faster than sugar.

These were delicious and can be made with honey if you don’t have sweetner. Very pretty with chopped strawberries on top.

I love this! I’m currently working on losing weight, so any tasty, healthy recipe I can find helps! I was just wondering about one edit to the recipe.. Would using just egg whites work? It would take away (even more) fat and calories and make these and even HEALTHIER option. I know normal cake, etc., recipes that call for 2 eggs need 3 whites if skipping the yoke. Would that be the same for this recipe?

I didn’t read through the comments before attempting this recipe. I threw it all in the blender. It did a whole lot of nothing.

They’re almost done. Thanks for the recipe :)

Well, I feel silly. I got on to comment asking what I did wrong, because I made these and they came out very gummy and much darker than the pictures. My one year old refused to eat them, and I’m afraid to ask my husband. However, while reading through the comments I saw someone ask something about eggs, and my brain went “eggs?? what eggs??” which is when I realized that I did not include the eggs in this recipe. I assume that can account for the gumminess and darkness, and I hope I am right. GEEZ!

Hi there, made these last week with bananas and walnuts, one batch with stevia(which I use a alot) and one with real sugar. The stevia batch were just ok, but the regular batch were really good. Today I made them again, first batch with chopped blackberries, these turned out delicious, and the second batch with the strawberries(just came out of the oven so to hot to try, but smell amazing). Instead of 3/4 cups sugar I only used 1/2 cup, my husband and I dont like these very sweet, and it really lets you taste the berries so much more. Everyone should try these, they are great if you are trying to avoid flour in your diet. will be trying with other fruits, Peach would be delicious I bet!

For lack of either silicone or foil liners, I took a risk; Your recipe turned out nicely in a loaf pan. I used parchment paper and lightly oil sprayed it.

My batter also turned out very thick and lumpy. But I think that had to do with the fact that my blended isn’t the greatest. I still thought they turned out good. They where a bit more course and my 5 year old refused to eat them but my 1 year old loved them so it worked out in the end. Next time I will get a food processor and I am sure they will turn out more smooth. Thanks!

I just tried these and I’m really happy with them! I put in strawberries and blueberries. I did tweak the recipe a bit though. I only had about a cup and a half of oats so I used about 3/4 of whole wheat flour too and added 2 T of ground flaxseed. I used 8 packets of Splenda and they probably could be a little sweeter but still good. I need to buy some Stevia so will use that next time. Oh, and I did add 1 T of coconut oil, I guess something in my head said I needed a little fat or they will stick. I used foil liners and it was fine. Next time I will use no oil. I did think the batter was a little thick so added a T of water. I entered the recipe in myfitnesspal and they come to 107 calories each, 15 carb, 6 protein, 3 fat, 3 fiber. Thanks for sharing this, I will be making again!

I just made these and they are GREAT. Changed very little, used regular sugar, only had individual containers of yogurt so used Oikos strawberry and made up the difference with low fat sour cream. Also I am usually guilty of overmixing muffins so they are chewy….What I did is ground the oatmeal in my processor then gently folded it into the wet ingredients. The texture is much better….
Thanks for the recipe!!

I am so bummed that these did not turn out. I have been looking forward to them for a couple of days. The batter was brown and lumpy (why does yours look so light and fluffy in the pic?), the insides of the muffins did not cook all the way, and the stevia taste was horrible. :o(

I am going to try again with modifications because I LOVE the idea of baking w/out flour. Others have liked them so I know they are worth another attempt!

Kristin said:

I just made them. Three things I found:

1- I used 1 cup of Splenda…I think it only needed 1/2 a cup. Came out a little too sweet.

2- I used frozen strawberries so I think that may have affected how they came out, next time I will be sure to use dry ones.

3- I believe for the oats you can buy Oat Flour instead of having to blend up the oats (would make it faster)…plz correct me if I am wrong.

4- You definitely have to blend the oats FIRST,
then mix in the dry stuff all together,
THEN add the wet stuff
(unless of course you have a food processor I suppose…I used my magic bullet)

Next round I’m going to try adding the protein!

sharishortcake said:

Kristin, regarding the oats, if you have an immersion blender (like a Braun Handblender, etc) you don’t have to use oat flour. It blends up the oats as finely as you’d like them quick as a wink, with or without the wet ingredients added in 1st. I’ve been messing around with blending the batter a lot and not even blending it at all (leaving the rolled oats whole) and all versions have come out moist and perfect. It saves a bunch of money on buying oat flour. Happy Baking!

I made these this morning and they were great. I threw everything in my Ninja blender, then mixed in the strawberries and poured them into foil liners that I took the paper out of. I loved that I only got a blender and a few measuring cups dirty. I didn’t make any major changes…but I used frozen chopped strawberries, strawberry greek yogurt and added 1/2 cup of regular sugar. I also used quick oats because that’s all I had.
I was skeptical because the batter just looked like a bowl of mushy oatmeal. I baked them for 25 minutes and they rose up perfectly ( I didn’t put strawberries on top)
The muffins were fluffy and had the perfect sweet flavor. I will be making these again and again with different add ins.
Thanks for the great recipe!

Does anyone know what phase this would be for South Beach dieters? I do all the cooking and my sister has just started phase II. Was wondering if I could surprise her with these this weekend to ‘reward’ all her hard work…she’s already down 10 lbs! Thank you!

Can I make these with frozen strawberries? They are out of season where I live and very expensive shipped in from California. Maybe I could thaw out some frozen ones?

Where are these to be stored? Fridge vs. Freezer vs. Countertop? How long do you think they are good for? I have made these two times and they have always tasted amazing for a couple of days and then tasted not so amazing. I am wondering if I need to change where I store them and for how long.

Loved these! Made them for my son and his friends for a valentines party in a heart shaped muffin pan, they were so delicious! I also added Chai seeds to the mix. Planning to feature this recipe and a link to your blog in my next post, thanks for the great recipe! It is one we’ll be making frequently!

We made these tonight and they turned out great! We substituted half a cup of almond meal for half a cup of the oats and used about a 1/4 cup of honey instead of stevia. I keep trying to like stevia but I can taste it in everything I put it in and not in a good way. Thanks for the recipe.

Made these tonight and they were good. Next time I think I would prefer to have more of a strawberry purée and I will cut down the time and temp. 400 really overcooked and browned my muffins. Also regarding some of the comments on oat flour vs actual oats. I switched over to oat flour awhile ago and you do have to use less. Oat flour is very dense and packs a lot. I always deduct 1/2 cup from a recipe.

OH MY GOODNESS! These are wonderful especially when warm! I thought I was going to have a problem with my blender as the mixture had to be divided into small portions and done separately. I was concerned I would have to throw everything out. Next time I will grind the oats by themself first. I am so glad I went ahead and finished the recipe and baked them. They are delightful and I am taking to work tomorrow to share! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Just an FYI- if you lightly spray paper cupcake liners with a nonstick spray the muffins will come right out.

Just made 2 batches. Both delicious! First batch followed the recipe as is. Second batch, added 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder for extra protein. Also, I’d recommend parchment paper muffin liners. They don’t stick.

I’ve now made these several times and love them. I am not a big breakfast eater and not in the mood to cook in the morning either. SO, these are so awesome and healthy too. I make a double or triple batch and freeze them so I have my breakfast made for a couple weeks ahead. (IF I can keep the hubby out of them! LOL) All I have to do is take a couple out and nuke them for 1 minute and tada! Breakfast. :-) I also vary what I put in them, different fruits and I always add some nuts because I love that “crunch” in my muffins. I also put some cinnamon and a little vanilla in them too. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

I dared to use quick oats since it was all I had on hand; the batter was much thicker but the muffins turned out just fine! I added some blueberries since I had some about to go bad. I also didn’t have aluminum cups, so I greased my pan with some cooking spray and they did not stick at all.

I have made these again grinding the oats by themselves first. Then I mixed the wet ingredients into a bowl and added the dry oats etc. to the wet bowl. Whole different experience this time…no gumminess at all! I used blueberries in most of the batter but saved a little to incorporate small mini chocolate chips. This recipe is awesome and I can’t wait to try mango next time.

These are fantastic! I’ve made them twice since joining this site a week ago! First, I used Strawberries, 1/2 cup of real sugar and all natural vanilla yogurt and the second time I used canned peaches (all out of fresh fruit it’s been a crazy week), greek yogurt and stevia (Plus some cinnamon). They were wonderful both times!! I keep them in the freezer and my youngest son and I each have one for breakfast!

Love this recipe, but mine turned out more like baked oatmeal than muffins. I couldn’t get the “batter” to become creamy, even though I blended until a little smoke started to come out of my blender. Reading the comments, though, I noticed that a few people mentioned blending the oats by themselves and mixing the rest by hand, so I’ll try that next time! So very delicious, and delightfully healthy, either way!

Thanks for the recipe!

Great gluten-free recipe! I used 1/4 tsp pure stevia powder plus 1/4 c white sugar and it was delicious. Sometimes stevia gets a little weird-tasting, so I try to be cautious. Thanks for one of the few gluten-free recipes I’ve found- plus oats are so much more nutritious as opposed to the typical gluten-free flour blend.

The batter was very thick, it was almost too much for my blender to mix. I’d suggest dividing the batter in half and blending it in two batches and then combining in the bowl when you add the strawberries, especially if you have just a standard non-industrial blender like me. They otherwise baked up nicely, and were pretty good.

Yum. Used frozen blueberries. Processed oats first, then added other ingredients. Used real sugar, 3/4 cup (will use less next time). Added 1/2 cup soy milk.

I thought the end result kinda tasted like cold porridge (which I don’t mind at all!), but hubby and the kids loved them. Very easy to make.

They taste great-I’d never guess there’s no flour. But after 16 minutes at 400 F the muffins were a bit too done. next time I’ll start checking after 12 minutes. I do have a convection oven so that might be part of the issue. Or maybe 375 is better to bake these? Thanks for sharing! Always looking for a healthy tasty muffin recipe!

thanks mapi! i would just suggest putting the liquid ingredients in first… also, you may have to turn your blender off in between and move things along with a spoon, and then continue until everything is combined!
