  • 1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons oil (I recommend avocado oil or melted unrefined coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup fresh diced strawberries (I used about half of a 1 pound package, diced small)


  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a medium bowl, and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the maple syrup, oil*, egg, Greek yogurt and vanilla on low for about a minute.

  4. Turn off the mixer, and stir in dry ingredients just until moistened. (Or, incorporate them slowly with the mixer on low as shown in the video, being careful not to over-mix.)
  5. Scrape the sides of the bowl, and turn the mixer back on low.
  6. Gently fold in the strawberries.

  7. Use cooking spray or baking liners to coat a 12-cup standard muffin tin.
  8. Spoon in the batter about three fourths full in each cup.
  9. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees, until toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Recipe Notes

*If using melted coconut oil, stream it in and stir to combine, just ahead of folding in the berries. This prevents it from going solid again. If using avocado or canola oil, you can add it in the wet ingredients as shown in the instructions above.
