  • 1 ¼ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • ¼ cup canola oil (or melted and slightly cooled butter)
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest (optional but recommended)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
  • Add flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a medium bowl. Stir together.
  • Add the milk, maple syrup (or honey), oil, eggs, vanilla, strawberries, and lemon zest. Stir gently just to combine.
  • Divide batter between the muffin pan using about ¼ cup per muffin.
  • Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for a minute or two in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack. (Use a knife around the edges to loosen if needed.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
