Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Muffins

     It's strawberry season here in Indiana. Last week we went to the local U-pick, and got about four and a half pounds of strawberries. I've been experimenting and snacking on the best strawberries I've had in a very long time. I don't know what it is that makes them so much better, but I can never find tasty strawberries at the store. I might go back this week to get a little more.
     A couple of weeks ago, I saw a strawberry chocolate chip bread recipe and knew I wanted to make muffins using it as a guideline. I did make a lot of changes, but here is the original.
    I've been trying to substitute some ingredients for others that are a bit healthier. This muffin recipe includes whole wheat flour, flax seed, and some agave in place of some sugar. My whole family loved them, and we didn't have to feel guilty about eating the whole batch in a day!

12 muffins
2 cups strawberries, chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup agave
1-1/2 cup flour (take out 3Tbl for whole wheat)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
6 Tbl milled flax seed
6 Tbl oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Puree 1cup of strawberries. Dice remaining. Combine and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. 
  • Add agave, oil, egg, and vanilla. 
  • Mix in strawberries. 
  • Fold in chips.
  • Bake @ 325* until golden. (original calls for 350*, but I lowered it because of the agave)

  2. I'm trying to do the same thing with healthy substitutes in muffins. These are perfect and look scrumptious!
