Lemon juice and zest add a tartness to these delicious strawberry muffins. Great for either breakfast or a snack.
We love these muffins! I've tried with blueberries instead of strawberries, too, and that tastes good as well. You can substitute applesauce for the oil, splenda for the sugar and oatmeal for 1/4 of the white flour to make a healthier recipe. - 11 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have made these muffins twice now, and there are two equally good variations of them. The original strawberry lemon, and blueberry orange. (substitute blueberries for strawberries, and orange juice for lemon juice), grate a little bit of zest to go over the top. Made a batch of these for my friend for her birthday too, and she really enjoyed them -even if they were a little burnt-. I can also see these being a big hit with kids too. - 31 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were excellent! The fresh strawberries were so delicious in these muffins. I used a fresh-picked lemon from our tree and the combination of the lemon and strawberry flavors is just so nice! I used 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup rolled oats instead of the wheat flour called for in the recipe b/c I didn't have any. It worked out great! This is a keeper for us! - 22 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
