Strawberry Muffins – a quick and easy muffin recipe with lots of fresh juicy strawberries. Slightly sweet, tender and absolutely delicious. Great to freeze and have on hand for busy mornings!
We all know that I am a huge fan of muffins by now. There are over 50 Muffin Recipes on the site, and I always have at least one type stashed in my freezer.
My son’s favorite is Chocolate Chip Muffins, so more often than not those are waiting for him to take out and have on busy mornings.
As soon as you can find fresh strawberries in the stores, I start to pick up an extra package or two so I can make all the strawberry treats! Strawberry Shortcake is a requirement at our house, it is one dessert that we can all agree on and look forward to every year. And making Mixed Berry Jam with fresh strawberries is always a must.
These Strawberry muffins are light and tender and a great way to use those fresh berries. But you can make them with frozen too! I like to thaw them and drain any liquid before chopping to add to the batter, but they work great so you can make these year round!

How to Make Strawberry Muffins
Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card to get the measurements and full instructions!
- Combine all of the wet ingredients in a bowl. This is your vegetable oil, milk, egg, vanilla and both sugars. Mix these until smooth and blended.
- Whisk together all of the dry ingredients. The flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon get whisked together until it is well combined.
- Add the chopped strawberries to the flour mixture and mix to make sure they are coated in flour. This will make sure they don’t sink to the bottom as they bake.
- Gently mix everything together until just combined.
- Divide equally into a muffin and bake until a tester comes out clean.
- It is best to let them cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before removing.
How to Freeze Muffins
Muffins of almost any kind freeze really well. You just need to let them cool completely, and then place in an air tight container or freezer storage bag and put in the freezer. They will last for 2-3 months.
To thaw muffins you can remove and microwave for about 30 seconds per muffin or let them sit on the counter for a couple of hours until they have thawed.
Tips for Homemade Muffins
- This is an easy homemade muffin recipe that you can really mix up to it your own. The base is slightly sweet and very good on its own. You can mix in other berries, add mini chocolate chips to this recipe, use cinnamon chips or white chocolate chips…so many options to make this base recipe into something else.
- When making muffins be very careful not to over mix the batter. You want to stop mixing once the flour is just incorporated into the batter or your muffins will be tough and not nearly as tender.
- Muffins are great to freeze, we always have them in the freezer for quick breakfasts or treats in lunch boxes.
- To fill muffin tins, use an ice cream scoop. This way they will be even and you won’t have dribbles of batter all over your muffin tray.
In the summer strawberries are everywhere. When we lived in the Midwest we would go pick pounds and pounds of them and bake and cook for days! They just scream summer! So if you are entertaining, or just want to enjoy summer these muffins should be added to your list to make.
