Mini Strawberry Oat Muffins

Have you started planning for back to school yet? I know, I have and I’m trying to come up with some recipes to make feeding my family easier during the school year. These Mini Strawberry Oat Muffins are not only delicious but they are also filling and easy to make.

You always hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but how many of us actually eat breakfast? Especially during school year? You have to get up, get everyone ready for school and yourself for work, so coffee ends up being breakfast most of the time. My husband is especially bad about not eating breakfast because he wants to sleep as long as possible and gets up right in time to leave.

I’ve been trying to come up some easy and filling breakfast ideas that you can just grab and go. These muffins (and more ideas to come soon) are a perfect little something to grab with you on the way to the car. They are filling and healthy but the best part is, they are so yummy!

These mini strawberry muffins are also perfect to pack with kid’s school lunch (and snack.) I used to pack goldfish and other little crackers as a school snack for the little guy until one day, the teacher told me that he “exchanged” them for mini muffins with another little boy. I say “exchange” because toddlers have different rules and there wasn’t much of a choice given. I felt so bad that I brought extras the next day. It did give me an idea though, to make some mini muffins as a school snack. It’s perfect!

  11. Was looking for a mini strawberry muffin recipe per my 3 year old’s birthday request — looks like I’ve found the one! Thanks so much!!

    These are delicious. I will def print to put in my binder of regular recipes. 2/3 cup of sugar was plenty. Combined with the sweetness of the strawberries I might even use slightly less next time. My muffin tin must be a little smaller because I got 28 muffins and they were filled to the top. No complaints there though. They’ll be gone quick enough. Thanks for the great recipe.

  13. Kolleen says:

    I made these muffins for my daughter to eat for breakfast. I got 43 mini muffins out of this recipe. I also used more like 10 strawberries…some were even on the bigger size picked from a local berry farm…in order to keep the batter and strawberry ratio even. I am freezing them, so hopefully they taste decent after a freeze and a thaw. :)

  14. Perfect!
