Strawberry Yogurt Oat Muffins

My husband and his sister ran their annual 5k this weekend to raise money for the NJ National Guard Youth Programs. More power to them, especially since it was in the freezing rain. If I am running, it means something is chasing me and you should run too! I do much better with zumba or kickboxing to stay active. I wanted to send them off with a good breakfast, so I whipped up these amazing and nutritious strawberry yogurt oat muffins! The batter was a cinch.

I used oat flour, old fashioned oats, wheat germ and Greek yogurt to give these strawberry yogurt oat muffins loads of substance. Fresh strawberries gave them little juicy gems all throughout!

All I did was pour my wet ingredients into my dry ingredients with no special equipment needed. Just a whisk and a spatula did the trick!
I used a 1/3 cup measure to evenly distribute the batter in my lined muffin tin. I ended up having more batter, so I took my second pan and filled 3 more lined muffin wells. This recipe yielded 15 strawberry yogurt oat muffins total, which was perfect!

The strawberry yogurt oat muffins needed to bake for about 30 minutes or so to get puffy and baked through. When they came out they smelled so incredible! Why yes, I did use leopard print muffin liners to remind my two favorite runners to be fierce. Also, I love anything leopard print!

These babies were just the ticket to power my wonderful hubby and sister through their race! They made great time in spite of the horrible weather and had a blast. It powered me through my morning of chores and errands too. The muffin crumb was so tender because of the yogurt. We had some leftover and they kept perfectly sealed overnight to enjoy the next day. Yum!

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups oat flour
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry balsamic vinegar
  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 pound strawberries hulled and coarsely chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a 12 well muffin pan plus 3 more in a second pan with paper liners. Whisk the oat flour, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl whisk the milk, Greek yogurt, eggs and strawberry balsamic vinegar together. Pour those wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk it all together just until it is a smooth batter. Switch to a rubber spatula and fold in the oats and strawberries.
  2. Scoop a 1/3 cup portion of the batter into each lined well, then bake the muffins for about 30 minutes or so. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out cleanly. Let them cool in the pan for 10 minutes or so before removing them from the pan to finish cooling. Serve immediately! They will also keep sealed in a container for a day. Enjoy!

  1. Mm, I love using yogurt in muffins and quick breads – it adds such a creaminess and a little bit of tang. I’ve never used a flavored yogurt before though… I would probably stick with plain to avoid the extra sugar.
