Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Earlier this year I made a commitment to myself that I would try to share healthy options on this blog. I started the year out by sharing these Skinny Pumpkin Energy Bites and these Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.

You all seemed to love them!

So it was only a natural progression that I tried another flavor of muffins. Strawberry Chocolate Chip.

Using the same muffin base,  but adding some fresh chopped strawberries, I think you guys are going to love these!! I lowered the amount of whole wheat flour than the original version, my kids don’t like their muffins too “chewy.” The first batch had 1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup whole wheat, and they were delicious, but after a day my kids didn’t like the texture.

So I tried making them with more all purpose than whole wheat and they were kid approved! You decide what will work in your family. While my kids LOVE healthy food, when it comes to their baked goods I have taught them to love them SWEET. Extra SWEET.

This is a work in progress! I have replaced the extra sugar from this recipe by using honey and light agave nectar. The extra chocolate chips on top add just enough sweetness to make you think you are indulging…but your skinny jeans will still fit!

Unless of course you don’t wear skinny jeans. Yoga pants? Pajama pants? Whatever. So, with a handful of healthy recipes on the blog, I’m ready to indulge in a muffin with my morning coffee and not feel guilty! Now if only I can give up the sweet cream I use in my coffee…send help!!!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I can’t wait to try these muffins! I can’t enough of the chocolate and strawberry combination and love that these are “skinny”.

  2. I want one! I want one! Or let’s make it a dozen. 😉 Who can resist the chocolate/strawberry combo?!

  3. I love strawberry muffins and love that you made a skinny version that includes chocolate – yay! They sound wonderful with the banana, vanilla greek yogurt and whole wheat flour:) Perfect for a delicious and healthy breakfast – pinning and can’t wait to give these a try 🙂

  4. I need to work on my strawberry muffin recipe and skinnify it. I roast the strawberries first and use white chocolate. I know, I know.. definitely not skinny enough.

    I’m going to make yours and feel righteous. 🙂 They look wonderful.

  5. I’m with you and Kristan! I always have the good intention of reaching for something healthy, like Cream of Wheat or a protein shake, but c’mon… PopTarts are incredibly hard to resist! But methinks if I had a plate of these muffins lying around I would be allll for them. Love that they only LOOK sinful! 😉

  6. These would be a lovely breakfast for Valentine’s Day, and I love that they leave me a bit of extra wiggle room to dive into a box of chocolates later in the day 😉

  7. These muffins look very appetizing and I wanted to cook the same but I couldn`t find strawberries. What other berry would you recommend to add? I thought about cherries but I am not sure that they will taste good in combination with chocolate.

  8. You can’t beat chocolate and strawberries in a muffin, especially if they’re skinny! These look delicious, Aimee. 🙂

  9. I always find myself starting the day off with a ton of junk and sugar. I think I need to give these a try instead. Love the pretty strawberries!!

  10. I love chocolate and strawberries and I love that you put them in a healthy little muffin! The perfect snack for Valentines Day…or any day!

  11. What a perfect skinny muffin! I don’t usually bake with whole wheat flour but I should certainly try!

  12. I made similar muffins a few months ago for a potluck. They were a hit for sure. Definitely need to whip some up again.

    1. It’s amazing how you really can get away with less sugar in a recipe….especially by adding a few chocolate chips on top!

  13. These are gorgeous! I love how muffins are so easy to make skinny. We’ve been on a muffin kick, but I haven’t tried the strawberry/choc combo. It looks amazing!
