Strawberry Power Muffins
Summer is [unofficially, officially] here! If you’re spending your summer with one foot into the real world [or both for post-grads!], you may be like me + find yourself dreading your alarm each morning [note to self: read Morgan’s 8 Ways To Become a Morning Person #Wannabe6AMCrew]. I’m not a morning person at all, so I like to time my mornings so I can get ready + make it to work on time while still maximizing sleep. Because of that, I’m not left with a lot of time for a good breakfast each morning. Enter, Strawberry Power Muffins!
I love low maintenance breakfasts that I can grab on the way out the door. When I need a change from my overnight oats, I whip up a batch of muffins. These muffins are loaded with protein to help kick start your day + keep you full throughout the morning, but my favorite part is how customizable the recipe is! I usually make them with plain Greek yogurt, but feel free to experiment + try fruit flavors. They’re super quick, + they’re great on their own or warmed in the microwave with a scoop of peanut butter Greek yogurt *frosting.* YUUM.
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Oat Flour [I put a cup of oats in a blender + ground it]
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
.5 cup Truvia Baking Blend [or regular sugar!]
1.25 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 large Egg, beaten
4 tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted + cooled
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 [or more!] cup chopped Strawberries
For Honey Peanut Butter Frosting
¼ cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter
1 tsp Honey
Pinch of Cinnamon
#1] Pre-heat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, + chia seeds or ground flax.

#5] While muffins are baking, mix frosting ingredients.
