Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 24 minutes
Total Time 44 minutes
Servings 12 muffins


Pecan Crumble

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup 60g unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup 84g all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup finely chopped pecans

Strawberry Muffins

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup oil
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt I used Chobani whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups diced fresh strawberries divided


To make the crumble:

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to mix until all ingredients are evenly coated with butter. Let the mixture remain in small clumps and set aside.

To make the muffins:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare two muffin pans with lotus-style paper liners (or regular paper liners) by placing one liner in every other cavity. If you’re using lotus-style liners, this recipe makes about 12 large muffins. If you’re using regular paper liners, it will probably make a few more.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl; whisk to combine. Add eggs, oil, milk, Greek yogurt, and vanilla. Stir until dry ingredients are incorporated, but a few lumps are okay. Fold in 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries. (Reserve remaining strawberries for sprinkling on top of muffins.)
  • Spoon muffin batter into the prepared paper liners about ¾ full. Bake muffins for 5 minutes at 400°F, remove from oven, and lower the oven temperature to 350°F.
  • Sprinkle pecan crumble over the tops of the muffins and add a few diced strawberries to the tops as well. Return to oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean (a few crumbs are okay).
  • Remove from oven and cool in pans for 10 to 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store muffins in an air-tight container at room temperature.
