Homemade Strawberry Muffins

This recipe for homemade strawberry muffins was originally a sponsored post.

I have a thing for strawberries, especially when they’re in season. Ok, so really… I love any fruit in season.

We make strawberry ice cream, fresh strawberry pie, strawberry lemonade, eat a whole bunch of them, and more. Somehow, there are always still strawberries still remaining (we may overpick?), so I’ve been looking for more ways to use them.

Fresh picked strawberries

Homemade strawberry muffins take just a half hour to make, which is always a win.

How to Make Homemade Strawberry Muffins

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Remove the stem, then hull your strawberries before chopping into bite size pieces. Measure a cup of strawberries, so you should have some extra from a full pound.

In a separate bowl, make vanilla cinnamon sugar. I love muffins with that crunchy sugary top.

I planned to make vanilla sugar, but Mister Man suggested that we make vanilla cinnamon sugar, as it would pull out more hints of cinnamon from the muffin itself.

Add sugar to a bowl with the vanilla. Using a fork, stir until the vanilla is completely distributed, then add the cinnamon and stir again.

Set aside until you’re ready to top your homemade strawberry muffins.

In a bowl, add your dry ingredients. Mix together two cups of flour, baking powder, one teaspoon of cinnamon, salt, and sugar.

Dry ingredients for homemade strawberry muffins

In a separate bowl add milk, oil, one teaspoon of vanilla, and eggs. Mix well, ensuring eggs are fully incorporated.

Pour your liquid ingredients into your dry ingredients and stir until mostly mixed.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients

Add your last tablespoon of flour to the strawberries and toss them to coat. This will help keep your strawberries from sinking to the bottom of your muffins as they bake.

Add your strawberries to your muffin batter, then stir gently.

Toss strawberries with flour

Scoop the batter into your muffin tins. I use muffin papers for mine, which helps keep the moisture in.

Once you have the batter in your muffin tins, gently sprinkle the vanilla cinnamon sugar over the top of each one. Put your homemade strawberry muffins in your 400 degree oven and bake 20-23 minutes.

Let the muffins cool for ten minutes before removing from your muffin tins, and then serve immediately. These homemade strawberry muffins will keep on your counter for 2-3 days.

Keep the seal loose, or the sugar will absorb humidity.

Yum! I might have to try this soon - no matter how nice the store-bought strawberries look when I take them home, they turn far too quickly.

We go nuts for strawberries too this time of year. They are everywhere and we can barely keep them in the house. We went strawberry picking last summer, haven't been this summer yet. I'd love to try strawberry muffins. Yum! #client

I'm glad to hear we aren't alone ;) Right now we're all into blueberries, but strawberries haven't disappeared! I'm sure I'll be cooking up some blueberry muffins soon, too.
