Strawberry muffins are the perfect quick breakfast. Bursting with fresh strawberry flavor, they are made with an entire pound of strawberries. They provide a great alternative compared to the standard chocolate chip or blueberry muffins. 

Benefits Of Strawberries

These vivid bright red sweet strawberries are a rich source of vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a vital role in developing and maintaining connective tissues, bone formation, healing injuries, and maintaining healthy gums. 

Strawberries also contain manganese. Though it is a trace element, manganese is an essential element. Manganese plays a critical role in synthesizing and activating enzymes and accelerates the synthesis of protein, vitamin C, and vitamin B. Moreover, manganese metabolizes glucose and lipids, catalyzes hematopoiesis, regulates the endocrine, and improves immune functioning.

Folate, or vitamin B9, is another vital nutrient found in strawberries. Folate is responsible for DNA replication, acts as a substrate for several enzymatic reactions involved in the amino acid synthesis and vitamin metabolism. Folate is also a vital element for pregnant women as it helps the fetus grow and develop. 

Potassium is also found in strawberries. This mineral decreases blood pressure in adults, which affects the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease. Additionally, potassium is the principal intracellular molecule in the body, mainly involved in membrane capability and electrical stimulation of nerve and muscle cells and acid-base regulation. 

What Temperature Is Best To Bake Muffins?

While you can certainly bake your muffins at the standard temperature of 350°F, muffins are baked at a higher temperature. Higher temperatures allow muffins to rise quicker, which creates their tall structure and golden brown top appearance. Most muffin recipes will require a temperature of 375°F or 400°F.

Should I Use Fresh Or Frozen Strawberries

If you cannot find fresh strawberries, you can use frozen strawberries. It is worth noting there are two viewpoints on baking muffins with frozen berries. You can remove the strawberries from the freezer, add them to your muffin batter, or let them thaw and remove the excess liquid before adding it to the muffin batter. If using thawed berries, keep in mind, they may become mushy, and the color will diffuse into the batter.

How Long Do Strawberry Muffins Last?

Strawberry muffins are not the same as banana or chocolate chip muffins. Strawberry muffins will only last a few days. The composition of strawberries is about 92% water. Therefore, the moisture alters the texture of the muffins after a couple of days.
