    2. In a large bowl, beat together the egg, oil, brown sugar and vanilla. Blend in the oat mixture. Stir in the flour mixture, just until moistened. Fold in strawberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 to 3/4 full.

    Altered ingredient amounts. These muffins are fabulously moist and delicious! I decided to make these muffins because of the rolled oats. My 5yo son has borderline high cholesterol and oatmeal can help reduce it naturally and he will not eat just oatmeal. Firstly, I doubled the recipe because I have 5 children and 12 muffins wouldn't have lasted for more than 5 minutes in our house. I took some suggestions from the other reviewers and changed the recipe in the following ways: I substituted whole wheat flour for 1/2 the amount of regular flour; I used one mashed banana for 1/2 of the amount of oil; I added cinnamon along with the soda, powder and salt. If I had egg substitute on hand, I would have used that instead of regular eggs. I also used fresh cut strawberries. These muffins are delicious and so much more healthy than the standard fare...great source of fibre! Thanks for submitting such a different recipe for strawberries!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. The strawberries made them a little mushy, but I didn't mind. I didn't have buttermilk so I used regular milk with some lemon juice in it. I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon and used whole wheat pastry flour. They turned out just fine.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This muffin was pretty good! It wasn't the best but almost. I really didn't do anything different. I only added a few more strawberry's and some nutmeg. Also, I added a tbs. of cornflour to help them rise better. I cut the recipe in half and they worked great!  -  29 Sep 2008
