Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins - Recipe

Seeing how yesterday was Canada Day, I made something a little festive - Strawberry Muffins. These are awesome, quick and healthy! I adapted the recipe slightly and used a little less sugar - they still tasted awesome and were light, fluffy and not dry :) 

Ingredients: 


  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Oats
  • 1/3 Cups Sugar 
  • 1 Cup Greek Yogurt, Plain (I used Sour Cream because that was all I had - it was greek and it turned out fine!)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Cups Strawberries, Diced

Instructions: 

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray or line with foil liners. (The recipe says not to use paper, but I used "If you Care" liners and they were perfectly fine. 
2. Add all ingredients minus the strawberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. 
3. Pour in a large bowl and fold in strawberries. 
4. Distribute evenly over 12 muffins. 
5. Bake for 22-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. 

Enjoy!!!

  2. What brand is the Greek sour cream did you use? I dont recall ever seeing that before. Also, what fat percentage?

  3. Skotidakis is the brand from Costco - they only have one kind I think. It's 9% and has 40 calories and 3 grams of fat per 2 tablespoon serving.

  4. Oh. Ok. I don't have a membership there. Just curious: how is Greek sour cream different from the regular stuff?

  5. It's thicker - it has the same consistency as greek yougart.
