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!
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.
Why not make a batch of these muffins as part of your weekend meal prep? Keep them in the freezer for healthy breakfasts or snacks whenever you need them.

- BASIC GREEK YOGHURT MUFFINS – use any fruit you like in these
