Our grandsons spent the weekend with us and wanted muffins for breakfast, so I tried this recipe (made with some of my frozen homegrown strawberries). Yum! We all thought they were great and I'll definitely make them again!

Perfectly moist and delicious! The first time I made the recipe, I followed the instructions. The second time I used peach and raspberry yogurt, and then added frozen raspberries. Perfection.

I have made this recipe as written many times, as these are delicious! Here's a good way to decrease carbs and sugar, though, if you are so inclined: use only 1 cup of regular flour, 1/2 cup almond flour, and 1/4 cup coconut flour. Cut sugar to 1/2 cup. Use 3 eggs instead of 2, and use just a little extra (heap/overflow your teaspoon) of both baking soda and vanilla. Lemon or lime zest is a great addition. Enjoy!

Yum! Great with whole wheat flour. I used strawberry yogurt. I increased nutmeg to 1/2 tsp & added 1/2 tsp cinnamon.- Theresa

Loved these! Made them for my neighbors and now they have been requested as a birthday treat. I did make adjustments for what I had on hand. I used 1/4 c. strawberry yogurt (go-gurt if I'm being honest - Lol) 1/4 c. sour cream and I swapped the nutmeg for ground cardamom. After filling the tins I sprinkled the tops with raw sugar and slivered almonds. They smelled heavenly in the oven and were super pretty too. Keeper!

As stated in previous review, the batter comes out very thick. We also added some milk to get it thin enough to fold in the berries and then pour into the muffin cups. We did use a low-fat greek yogurt and perhaps that is why it was a bit thick, but the recipe doesn't really specify which type of yogurt to use. Anyway, addition of some milk helped with the thickness. Flavor is good. Cinnamon could be a good addition too.

I'm not a fan of nutmeg, so I added a pinch of cinnamon. I used strawberry yogurt in place of plain. The turned out delicious

Great muffin recipe. I had some Strawberry Chobani on hand and used that in place of plain yogurt. Cut the sugar to 1/2 cup because of the extra sugar in the yoghurt I used and added 1/2 cup milled flax seed. Turned out wonderful!

This is an awesome and easy recipe. I also think it serves for a base muffin recipe and can be mixed around with flavors. I have made this with banana yogurt instead of plain, amongst other yogurt flavors. It really depends on your taste. Also, if you want an even stronger strawberry flavor use strawberry extract instead of vanilla. I followed the suggestions with sprinkilng cinnamon sugar on top. I sometimes add a lemon strawberry glaze on top. (just powdered sugar, small amount of milk, strawberry extract and 1/4 tsp lemon juice)

I was so happy to see that one of the other reviewers used vanilla yogurt. That was all I had on hand. I only bake with whole wheat flour these days to try to be a bit healthier. I also took the advice of others & sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before baking. My husband isn't much of a "muffin fan" but he loved them, as did our two girls. I will most definitely be making these again :o)
