Whole wheat pastry flour and Greek yogurt keep these fresh strawberry muffins light and tender, and a cheesecake swirl makes them extra flavorful. Healthy and delicious!

And two – I am hosting my very first giveaway on Chez CateyLou!

But first I want to talk about these delicious strawberry muffins!
I love baking with whole wheat pastry flour. Have you ever tried it? It can be hard to find, but it is worth seeking out because it does wonders for your whole wheat baked goods. Regular whole wheat flour can leave baked goods dense and dry, but whole wheat pastry flour allows you to add whole grain nutrition to your baked goods without sacrificing the texture at all! It keeps the crumb in these muffins super light and tender.
These muffins are packed with healthy ingredients. They are 100% whole wheat for starters. Then, there is a whole cup of nonfat Greek yogurt in the batter. And finally, tons of sweet, fresh strawberries are stirred into the batter. But of course I couldn’t have these be TOO healthy – so I decided to add a cheesecake swirl! And I really think it makes the muffins. There is just a teaspoon-full in each muffin, but it adds such a great flavor and makes them so moist!
I wasn’t kidding earlier when I said these are one of the best muffins I have ever made. The texture is perfect, so light and tender. The flavor is amazing – the strawberries really shine in here. A hint of cinnamon in the batter snd the tangy cream cheese in the cheesecake swirl really complement the berries. Plus, these strawberry muffins were just as good on the second day! They might not look quite as pretty as some other muffins, but they make up for that with the incredible flavor.
But enough about muffins, let’s talk about the GIVEAWAY! One lucky winner will receive the following awesome products from Hodgson Mill:
