Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins

 

 

 

These Strawberry Oatmeal muffins would make a healthy, as well as pretty, breakfast for any day, but especially for Valentine's morning. I was intrigued that the recipe did not use any flour, but that the oats were processed into a smooth texture. Since I am always looking for healthy options that give me the illusion I am having a treat, I was looking forward to trying this unique muffin recipe.

Fresh strawberries tend to be inconsistent in their quality and freshness this time of year, so this was a perfect way to use the ones I had on hand, that had been in my fridge for a few days. The chopped berries sprinkled on top of each muffin make such a pretty presentation and taste so fresh. Also, since I like the texture of oatmeal, I left my oats a little course, but you could process them smoother, if you choose.

Since these are only 23 carbs per muffin, I could indulge in this sweet Valentine's treat and skip the candy hearts that were tempting me :-)

Happy Wednesday!
