  • 2 1/4 cups sliced strawberries
  • scant 1/2 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. In a small bowl, combine strawberries and scant 1/2 cup sugar. Mash berries gently with pastry blender or potato masher, then set aside.

  3. Next, stir together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla.

  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, then pour in buttermilk mixture and fold slowly to combine. Add berries [including any juice] to batter, then stir until just mixed.

  5. Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, then sprinkle with remaining sugar.

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan a few minutes before removing to wire rack. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to three days, then freeze any leftovers.
