Vegan strawberry muffins packed with juicy strawberries are very easy to make and taste delicious. They can be served for breakfast or enjoyed as a tea time snack.
Around 10 days back I went for my grocery shopping. As usual, I bought a lot of unplanned things just because they were on good deals. Despite having studied all the tricks of throwing bait for customers, in the management school, I often see myself taking the bait.
So that day the fruit section of my fridge got stuffed with strawberries. Unfortunately, the very next there was a sudden temperature drop in Dubai which continued for the next few days and I caught a cold.
The strawberries stayed ignored and unattended in the fridge.
Fortunately, I recovered before they were rotten but I didn’t have much time to finish them off. So, I left only one box in the fridge and froze the remaining strawberries. And, in the next few weeks, we enjoyed a lot of strawberry recipes.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite strawberry recipes- Vegan strawberry muffins. They are very easy to make and I am sure you too will fall in love with these delicious muffins stuffed with juicy strawberries.
In fact, I am enjoying them even now while writing this blog post with a cup of Karak chai to soothe my sour throat.
Tips & Tricks
- It’s best to use fresh strawberries in this recipe. However, if you are using frozen strawberries, first thaw them and then pat dry with a paper kitchen towel to remove the excess water.
- Adjust the amount of sugar as per your taste. You can also use a healthier version of your choice to make these muffins.
- You can also replace oil with an equal amount of apple sauce.
- Instead of canola oil, refined coconut oil can also be used.
- The baking time may vary depending upon the type of oven, quality of ingredients, weather, and altitude of place where you are baking so, keep an eye on the muffins after 20 minutes. Bake until they clear the toothpick test.
