Roasted Strawberry and Almond Muffins

More muffins! I've sure been on a kick of late.
The great thing about these little muffins is they aren't too sweet. Just perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. If you have some not perfect looking strawberries left over, use them here. They get roasted and will be hidden in the muffins. I changed a few things....did not use mini chocolate chips as I wanted to keep it simple. You can add 1/3 cup of the little chips if you want.  Frankly, I like the muffins without the added sweetness.

Roasted Strawberry and Almond Muffins
Adapted from Sprouted Kitchen

2 cups almond meal 
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar 
1/4 teaspoon sea salt 
2 eggs 
3 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons honey 
1/2 tsp. almond extract 
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
3/4 cup roasted strawberries* (see recipe below)

Preheat the oven to 375'. Prepare a mini muffin tin with paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, baking soda, coconut sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, olive oil, honey, almond and vanilla extracts together. Whisk until well blended and then add to the almond meal mixture. Stir. Fold in the strawberries. Fill the muffin liners to the top as they don't rise all that much.

Bake on the middle rack for 16-18 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. 

*For the Roasted Strawberries: Oven to 350'. Toss 4 cups quartered strawberries with a pinch of salt and 2 tsp. melted coconut oil (or olive oil works too). If your strawberries are sweet, leave them as is. If not, add some honey or a bit of sugar to sweeten. Spread them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast for 25-30 minutes. Set aside to cool. I only used 2 cups of strawberries, which was plenty for this recipe.


  1. HI Barbara!
    What lovely muffins to enjoy with a cup of tea. I love the idea of roasting the "not so perfect" strawberries. When Strawberry season eventually arrives, I'd love to try these with almond meal and no chips. Sometimes, simply is indeed better:) Thanks for sharing, Barbara...

    1. OMG yo también me las llevo para mi desayuno se ven perfectos,abrazos

  2. these muffins look lovely Barbara!

  3. I enjoy muffins and other treats when they are not to sweet with my coffee. Strawberries are in season too- roasted strawberries sound divine.

    Happy spring.

  6. I love the use of roasted strawberries! These muffins look fabulous, Barbara.

  7. This is my kind of muffin, not too sweet and I love the idea of the roasted strawberries.

  8. Barbara, you raise a good point about no-so-perfect strawberries. I don't often think of strawberries in baking (I lean towards blueberries) but what a perfect way to make use of those slightly bruised strawberries.

  9. I definitely am in the not too sweet camp - can't wait to try these!

  10. I, too, prefer my desserts not that sweet. These little muffins sound perfect to me Barbara!

  11. I love a bit of fruit in my muffins! These sound delicious, especially paired with the almond infusion.

  12. as kicks go, it could be worse than loving muffins! these look great--roasted strawberries are amazing.

  13. Wow roasted strawberry sound delicious in these muffins...and yes, Iike that they are not too sweet.
    Have a wonderful week Barbara :D

  14. Who doesn't love muffins?

  15. It seems like I'm always on a muffin kick! These would be a nice addition to my collection of muffin recipes.

  16. Coconut palm sugar? I might have to seek it out. I tried coconut milk creamer, but it just isn't... creamy enough for me. I really am a product of my dairy farming heritage.

  17. I'm intrigued by the roasted strawberries in these! They sound delicious with the almonds and strawberries. What a delicious treat for breakfast or tea!
