Whole Grain Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins

There are a thousand ways to eat strawberries, but one of the very best ways to enjoy this springtime berry is in the form of these Whole Grain Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins.

When baked into a muffin, the strawberries become jammy, and gooey, and perfectly delicious!

I always eagerly anticipate the arrival of strawberries at the farmer’s markets and grocery stores this time of year.

When I saw the first baskets of them this week I pounced and brought home enough to fill up a whole shelf in my fridge.

First up on the menu were a batch of these Whole Grain Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins.

I love delicious, healthy muffins because they are so versatile.

We can eat these strawberry muffins for breakfast, a quick snack, or even add them to the kids’ lunchboxes.

They freeze well and reheat easily, which means this busy mom can keep healthy, whole grain snacks on hand all the time.

Every time I bake muffins for breakfast, I always make an extra batch for the freezer.

How to Freeze Muffins

Freezing muffins is super easy!

The instructions for freezing muffins are essentially the same as these instructions for freezing pancakes and waffles.

Best of all, with whole grain rolled oats and whole wheat or spelt flour, you can feel really good about feeding these muffins to your family.

If you have a little extra time, you can even grind your own flour and take these muffins to the next level!

I have not tried that, however if I did use frozen sliced strawberries I would thaw them first and drain any excess liquid so that the muffins do not become over moist.
