  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats uncooked
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt OR light sour cream
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour plus some extra for the strawberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries


  • Combine wet ingredients: Add oats, brown sugar, Greek yogurt, oil and egg to a medium bowl and mix very well. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Mix dry ingredients: In the meantime, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl until evenly combined.
  • Prep: Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Toss strawberries in flour: Mix the strawberries with 1-2 tablespoons of flour in a small bowl.
  • Combine the batter: Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Batter will be lumpy. Do not use a whisk! Use a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula. Fold in the strawberries with 2-3 stirs.
  • Bake the muffins: Evenly divide the muffin batter between the prepared muffin cups (I like using a cookie scoop for mess-free work - I make a commission for purchases made through that link). Bake on the middle rack for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool the muffins: Cool the muffins in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a cooling rack.


    To freeze, put into a freezer bag and label with the name and date. Freeze for up to 3 months.
    To defrost, place the closed bag into a colander and thaw overnight.
