Healthy strawberry muffins that are lower sugar and lower fat. These muffins have a unique crunchy topping--Love Crunch's Dark Chocolate & Berries Granola.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 cup light buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup strawberries (very ripe and chopped)
  • Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berries Granola (for topping)

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 375 degree. Grease muffin pan or line with baking cups.
Step 2 In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients-all purpose, almond, and coconut flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Step 3 In another bowl, mix wet ingredients-egg, buttermilk, oil, and almond extract.
Step 4 Stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix.
Step 5 Fold in fresh strawberries.
Step 6 Using a large cookie scoop, place a heaping scoop into each muffin cup--about 3/4 full.
Step 7 Top each muffin with a tablespoon or more of the granola.
Step 8 Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
Step 9 Cool muffins on racks.

Note

Because these muffins are lower sugar (using only half a cup of sugar) select the most ripe strawberries.  Ripe strawberries will give the muffins a natural sweetness.

Do not over mix the batter--this will produce a dense and hard muffin.
