Strawberry & White Chocolate Muffins

 If you have fresh strawberries in the house, you must make these Strawberry & White Chocolate Muffins!
We’ve been on a muffin kick lately, and these muffins were amazingly tasty.
The strawberries mix perfectly with the white chocolate creating a luscious, fresh flavour.
I know the word ‘moist’ is so overused when it comes to baking, but seriously.. these muffins are SO moist & fluffy! (Due in part to the olive oil, & yogurt used).

I used my SOCKERKAKA Baking Cups from IKEA for the first time on half of the batch to see how they would turn out.
SOCKERKAKA Baking Cups are rubber silicone baking cups that are dishwasher, and oven safe.

I really liked how the muffins in the silicone cups turned out! They had a cute oblong shape to them, and the bottom of the muffins came out with a cute little flower design.
I had no issues with getting the muffins out of the cups – They slid right out of the cups without breaking.
I did have to cook the muffins in the silicone cups a tad longer, as the cups held more batter than the muffin pan cups.
All in all, after first use, I enjoy them & would recommend them!

(I’m interested to see what frosted cupcakes would look like using the silicone cups! I’ll be baking some soon & posting an update). :)

Strawberry & White Chocolate Muffins

Ingredients:
(yield: 12 muffins)
2 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups fresh strawberries, washed & chopped
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray, or line pan with muffin cups.
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) together; set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together until combined. Add the rest of the wet ingredients (yogurt, oil & vanilla) & mix together.

2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry & mix altogether using a spatula. Fold in the berries & the chocolate chips.
Using a large scoop, divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. There should be enough batter to fill each cup nearly full.
Bake approx. 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Let muffins cool for 5-9 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note: Muffins stay fresh for up to 4 days covered at room temperature.

Enjoy!

  1. Man I wish I wasn’t SO uselss in the kitchen as those look fantastic… I actually have a food boner right now!

    • Haha! Well thanks!
      I assure you – these muffins are not hard to make! (Most muffins are not hard to make as there’s no decorating involved). Basically, just don’t overcook them and you should be fine. I’m sure you could do it!
