Strawberries make me think of summer…and summer makes me think of long weekends at the lake…and long weekends at the lake make me think of family, sunshine, relaxation, and delicious food! As we are packing up to head to North Georgia for Memorial Day, I have been busy baking some fun summer treats to bring along.
Though they are made with white flour, and white sugar…they are balanced by nutrient packed berries, protein rich yogurt, and perfectly light apple sauce. The brown butter topping adds just the right amount of decadence to make these muffins feel like a special breakfast time treat.
Strawberry Brown Butter Muffins
makes 12 muffins
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup apple sauce
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
Brown Butter Topping
1/8 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into little cubes
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and prepare your muffin tin with non stick spray of muffin liners.
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add the sugar, milk, greek yogurt and apple sauce. Mix well. Next, combine the dry and wet ingredients. When they are well mixed, gently fold in the strawberries.
Now, fill your muffin tin and set it aside. In a small bowl, pinch together the butter, sugar and flour until it forms a crumble (make sure that there are no big chunks of butter).
Now sprinkle even amounts on each muffin.
Bake for 20-25 minutes- just until the tops are firm and the butter starts to slightly brown.
