New Best Healthy Strawberry Muffins How To Create For Health And Fitness. My most popular recipes are my muffin recipe is because muffins rock that includes my banana nut muffins and my banana chocolate chip muffins and those are super amazingly delicious but sometimes it’s really helpful to use what’s fresh in the season and to have a little bit of variety to keep spicing up our healthy lifestyle.
So today how about we make some delicious strawberry muffins using all real ingredients that means no artificial ingredients no grains no artificial flavors no added sugar or any of that stuff let’s make some paleo strawberry muffins all right let’s get started so first start preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and greasing a muffin tin with some coconut oil the coconut oil is optional you can also use cupcake liners.
if you would prefer I don’t personally like those as much because I like just popping them right out of the muffin tin and having them ready to go but up to you next we gotta wash our delicious fresh strawberries which are super infusing right now so I love using them in my recipes speaking of strawberries did you know that they are super awesome and healthy for you they reduce inflammation they help with your skin.
They lower blood pressure they improve your immunity and they even improve your mood they’re pretty amazing alright now that we have them all washed we’re gonna remove their husk by just slicing them off or if you have a tea Husker you can use that but slicing off is just as good and we’re gonna dice them into small even-sized pieces we keep them evenly sized as much as possible.
That way they’re gonna cook evenly when we put them in the muffins once you have all of your strawberries diced
Because that way they’re gonna cook evenly when we put them in the muffins once you have all of your strawberries diced and the husk go ahead and set those aside while we prep the batter for our batter we’re gonna use a medium mixing bowl and we’re gonna be adding in some almond flour baking soda and sea salt and we’re gonna whisk that together and then we’re gonna set that aside from a common.
They’re the same thing it’s pretty much-blanched almonds that are ground up into a flower which is awesome because it’s perfect for people who can’t have gluten it’s also paleo they’re great and usually, you can use about a 1 to 1 ratio for almond meal or almond flour to regular all-purpose flour so it’s super easy to bake with next we’re gonna use a different mixing bowl and we’re gonna mash some ripe bananas.
We’re gonna use ripe bananas because the riper the banana the sweeter the muffin using ripe bananas is a way that we get around adding extra sugar into our muffins because ripe bananas are naturally very sweet so we can just add those on in and not add any artificial sugars depending on the size of your bananas we’re looking for about 3/4 of a cup of mashed bananas and if you’re worried that it’s gonna taste like bananas don’t worry about it.
It’s gonna taste like delicious strawberry muffins the bananas are just there for a delicious added sweetener
It will not taste like bananas I promise it’s gonna taste like delicious strawberry muffins the bananas are just there for a delicious added sweetener if you wanted you could also use unsweetened applesauce which is another way to do it next we’re gonna add in our eggs pure maple syrup some melted coconut oil and some pure vanilla extract and then mix this all together until it is fully combined now add in our dry ingredients including the almond meal.
That we mixed earlier and then stir to combine the cool thing about this is usually with a gluten flour you’re gonna have to worry about over stirring it because you don’t want it to get super dense this it doesn’t matter so just make sure you get it nicely mixed now we get to add in our fresh diced strawberries into the mix and then stir that together if you don’t have fresh strawberries on hand you can always use some thawed frozen strawberries.
The final result is gonna be a little bit mushy err strawberry that’s gonna bleed a little bit more red into the full muffin but they will work as well if you don’t have access to fresh strawberries alright so that is our muffin batter and now it’s ready to be transferred into our muffin tins so I use an ice cream scoop to do this that that way I have the same amount that I go into all of my muffin tins so what I’m gonna use my ice cream scoop.
I’m gonna evenly divide our batter into each muffin we’re looking for it to be about two-thirds of the way full if it’s a little bit more that’s okay just try to make them even because the more evenly distributed all the batter the more evenly baked they are gonna be and you don’t have one it’s over mushy and one that’s overcooked at the same time then I like topping them off with a few extra strawberries that I’ve diced up.
Because it looks really pretty in the final muffin and it adds a little bit of moisture to the muffins and it’s just cool to add little strawberries on top now we’re gonna transfer our muffins into the oven and we’re gonna bake for 18 to 20 minutes what we’re looking for is for the muffins to be nice and puffed up golden brown around the edges and when you insert a toothpick or a knife it’s gonna come out clean.
Now you can remove your muffins from the oven and let them set in the muffin tin for about five minutes and then remove them from that and put them on a cooling rack and allow them to cool and come to room temperature properly stored these yummy paleo strawberry muffins are gonna last for about one to two days just as is if you cover them in plastic wrap and set them on your counter they’ll last for a couple of days longer.
If you place them in the fridge in an airtight container it’ll last for up to a week so it depends on when you’re gonna be eating them or you could just eat them all and share them with everybody right when you have freshly baked strawberry muffins because strawberry muffins need to be shared and yes you can totally freeze them just go ahead and wrap them individually in plastic wrap and then place them into a freezer-safe bag.
They’re gonna last for up to three to four months in a freezer so you have that kind of delayed gratification you’re okay to have that and then also it makes a really good meal prep breakfast if you want to have those later all right so now you have a delicious paleo strawberry muffin recipe that’s refined sugar-free refined flour free it’s gluten-free it’s clean eating it’s all the goods and it’s a really great way to use up some ripe bananas and some fresh strawberries from the season.
