Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins – Fluffy, soft chocolate chip muffins studded with fresh strawberries. Perfect in season as breakfast or dessert. Made with Greek yogurt, the whole family is sure to love these!
Strawberry chocolate chip muffins here today. Boo-ya! They’re just too fun. Like I said, I’m just in a berry happy sort of way this time of the year. Berries are fresh for the picking and I’m loving it. Strawberries are first here in Central Pennsylvania. Raspberries will be next, followed by blueberries and blackberries (which we get from our own backyard) Yes!
You’ll love these muffins because:
- They’re super soft and moist. Made with yogurt which enhances the softness.
- They’re less calories. I lightened these up a bit by using Greek yogurt. It’s perfect to use in baking and saves the waistline. Another ‘yes’!
- They’re freezer friendly. Wrap them in tight plastic and put in a zip top bag or place in a freezer friendly container. They’ll stay fresh for a month. Just pull one out in the night before. Place it on the counter and it’s good to go for breakfast the next day.
Friends, you all know by now how much I like chocolate, right? Because it’s like a major part of my life. I seem to find ways to sneak it into lots of food. Like this bread or pancakes or this popcorn .
I have a huge listing of chocolate recipes on the blog. Some you probably don’t even know exsist. Because they’ve gotten left in the dust by the more popluar recipes but it certainly doesn’t mean they should be ignored.
If you’re ready to try something new I have some suggestions:
These parfaits are so good! We all loved them and my brother has been begging for them since Christmas but they’re not exactly a road trip worthy dessert. (He lives 2 hours away.) But they definitely are an award winning dessert.
Or you should try this chocolate/vanilla bread. No one has to choose favorites then. It’s got the flavor of both and it’s sure to please many appetites!
And another forgotten favorite, this chocolate mocha. Make at home to save you cash and it’s just as good!
Til we meet and eat again,

- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a standard-size muffin pan or line with muffin cups and grease the muffin cups.
