Cinnamon Strawberry Muffins

A super tasty and easy alternative to banana bread. These strawberry muffins only need one bowl and you can have them in the oven in less than ten minutes.

We are a muffin family.

Bart has eaten the same muffins almost every day for breakfast since 2008, and I make different muffins fairly regularly to keep in the freezer for the girls to have for after-nap snacks.

The (super-nice) muffin tin we got for our wedding has definitely gotten more than its fair share of use in our kitchen.

I don't ask a lot of my muffin recipes, except for two things. I want them to be delicious (good flavor, good texture) and I want them to be easy to make (one bowl, no fussy ingredients, no whipping egg whites or zesting citrus). Okay, so maybe I do ask a lot of my muffins.

Happily, these muffins meet all of my requirements. I love them with frozen strawberries in the winter and in the summer, they are the perfect way to use up strawberries that are starting to look a little past their prime.

The cinnamon makes them a little fun and different and also means your house smells extra amazing when they're baking.

(P.S. If you're looking for other super quick and easy muffins, these banana muffins are a total staple around here. I've never had a better banana bread or muffin).

Cinnamon Strawberry Muffins

Makes 1 dozen muffins

1½ cups flour (I usually use white wheat)
1 cup sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup oil
1 cup chopped or mashed strawberries (I usually just run them through the blender for about 5 seconds)


Preheat oven to 350.

Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.

Whisk together dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until just combined. Divide batter between prepared muffin tin cups

Bake for 28-30 minutes until golden brown or a toothpick comes out cleanly

  1. The muffins look delicious but I have nothing to say about them and only to say a) thank you for the Sarah Dessen recommendation and b) thank you for the recommendation to turn the speed up on audiobooks. I am becoming an addict, I just wish I had more time to listen now!

  3. I'm guessing you converted your strawberry bread into muffins?? I loved that bread too.

  4. These are currently baking in the oven (with a few modifications of what I had on hand). We picked strawberries this weekend and I was out of ideas on how to use them up! Thanks!

  7. I just wanted to thank you for sharing this. I've made it so many times and we love it so much. Today I added some semi-sweet chocolate chips to half of them and it was delicious too!!!
