Strawberry coconut muffins

If you love fruit muffins, especially strawberry muffins, then you have to try my healthier strawberry coconut muffins!

They’re made with the goodness of wholesome ingredients like oat flour, almond meal, yoghurt, strawberries and coconut.

I like to sweeten my muffins with honey or pure maple syrup, as I can use less than I would with white sugar. And they blend beautifully with the fruit for a naturally sweet flavour.

Of course you could use any berry to make these delicious muffins. I just think that strawberries and coconut are a flavour match made in heaven!

Pssst! Have you got your copy of my Healthy Desserts & Snacks recipe book yet?

With over 40 delicious recipes, it's a must have for every healthy home cook.

I recommend using coconut yoghurt to enhance the coconut flavour of these muffins. But Greek yoghurt will work fine too, if that’s what you prefer.

You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. I love these strawberry muffins for breakfast, or as a post workout treat.

Don’t eat eggs? There are lots of substitutes you can use. I like the recommendations in this VEGAN SHOPPING LIST

You can always sprinkle chopped nuts on top of your muffins for some extra crunch.

  • 1 cup almond meal

  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten*
  • ½ cup coconut or Greek yoghurt
  • ½ cup milk of your choice
  • 1 punnet strawberries, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 180℃.

  • If you're using flax seed or chia eggs, mix according to instructions and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the almond meal, flour, coconut, baking powder and salt.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over a low heat, and allow to cool slightly while preparing other wet ingredients.
  • In a medium sized bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and then add the honey, yoghurt, milk and vanilla. Pour in the coconut oil and continue to gently whisk until all wet ingredients are well mixed.
  • Slowly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the strawberries.

  • After removing from the oven, allow to rest for 5 minutes and then cool on a rack.

Recipe notes

These muffins can easily be made vegan. Just use an egg substitute such as flax seed, or chia seeds.
If you use nut milk you may need to use a little bit less. Start with ¼ cup and add more if necessary - you don't want your batter to be too runny.
Coconut yoghurt will add to the coconut flavour of these muffins, but Greek yoghurt will work really well too.
