This healthy strawberry recipe which is basically strawberry muffins made with whole wheat flour and oats are excellent nutrients packed and can be easily categorized as healthiest muffin.

I am a big fan of muffins owing to its simple process and possible variations. I have posted my go to muffins recipes on the blog and you can find them here.
Lets get straight to the recipe.
- You can use any type of oats but I prefer whole/old fashioned type.
- You can use regular yogurt instead of Greek, just drain the excess water.
- A sprinkle of sliced almonds not only adds the crunch but a visual appeal as well.
- As like other muffins, you can store them in airtight container for a couple of days and in freezer for a couple of weeks,wrapped and boxed.
