Moist and full of fresh strawberry flavor, these muffins make a delightful treat. They’re perfect for a healthy breakfast, snack, or dessert, and the kids will love them!
Strawberries are on the Maybe list of foods to eat. They are one of the lowest-sugar fruits that you can find and, along with other berries like blueberries, are a good way to introduce some fruit into your diet.
Add in the coconut milk, coconut oil, and coconut flour, and you have a fiber-rich, low-sugar snack that all the family will love.
All the coconut ingredients have another benefit too. They all have antifungal properties, meaning that they can help to slow or prevent a yeast overgrowth in your gut. Ingredients like this can improve your long-term gut health.
You can make a large batch of these strawberry muffins and freeze them for eating later. Take them on a picnic, or just keep them in the house for those between-meal hunger pangs. Just remember to make enough!
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, canned coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp. powdered stevia
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries
- 6 fresh strawberry slices for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 6 cups of a 12 cup muffin tin with paper baking cups or brush generously with oil, set aside.
- In a medium bowl, sift coconut flour, baking soda and salt, whisk to combine. In another medium bowl, add unsweetened coconut milk, stevia, melted coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla, whisk thoroughly. Pour liquid ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients, stir to combine for one minute as coconut flour absorbs liquids. Fold diced strawberries into muffin batter.
- Spoon muffin batter into the prepared tin, smoothing tops, then press a strawberry slice on the top of each. Bake muffins until golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes. Cool, serve.

Do you think flax eggs would work in this recipe. On top of Candida I was recently diagnosed with an egg allergy.
When can I start to add strawberries into my diet again? After a month, 2-3 months? I’ve tried a lot of your recipes and they’re very helpful!
It really depends on the rest of your diet. If you are avoiding most fruits and all added sugars already, then a few strawberries should be just fine.
Is the stevia really necessary? Would they be sweet enough without it?
It depends what you’re used to. Personally, I would be comfortable leaving out the stevia. However, if you’re used to sweet-tasting muffins then you might need it.
Is there an *optional by stevia?
Is the whole batch 167 calories in total or is it per muffin? Thanks!
Lisa what vanilla extract do you recommend? I’m from the uk. I’m trying find extract that has no sugar or alcohol in it. The only one I can find has Vegetable Glycerine in it. It Calle Vanilla NuStevia Alcohol Free.
Would need avoid vegetable Glycerine?
Vegetable glycerin is pretty low in sugar and won’t affect your blood glucose too much. However, make sure that you don’t consume too much of it and that ideally it’s paired with a protein. Also remember that your overall sugar intake should be fairly limited.
Great recipe! I changed out the coconut milk for unsweetened almond milk, added an extra egg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and subbed in blueberries instead of strawberries. Turned out great! 🙂 A bit mealy, but baking with coconut flour always lends to a different texture.
Thank u for showing me the substitute for the canned coconut milk which I was out of !!
Awesome strawberry muffins!
Finally, we can eat something :’-D
This was great! I followed the recipe exactly (but doubled it) and it’s a great treat to have when you’re avoiding sweets. Would definitely recommend doubling (6 muffins is never enough!) but I’ll for sure be making this again. Thanks!
I double the quantities and put 1/3cup coconut flour and 2/3cup almond meal. The texture was perfect! Very gnammy!
I followed your tip on subbing part of the coconut flour with almond meal (same proportions as you listed) and the muffins turned out great. Thanks! 🙂
It’s lunch time and you made me determined to try your variation of this recipe for hungry moments like this 🤗
These were so amazingly yummy, and my husband even made them who never bakes!!
If I want to switch stevia for erythritol, how much should I use?
These were awesome. I’m made mine with raspberries. Would definitely make again. Thank you!
I used raspberries too and xylitol. I swapped coconut oil for olive oil as coconut oil can cause wakefulness. Mmmmm yummy
Has anyone used monkfruit instead of stevia?
These were good! I saw some comments about using some almond flour too. I’m going to try that next time for a smoother texture. Thank you for the recipe 🙂
I really enjoy these, I’ve made them with strawberries and blueberries. I do find them to taste a little egg though has anyone tried subbing eggs for flax eggs? I was thinking you could reduce the eggs to 2 or 1 and replace with flax eggs for a less eggy tasting muffin
Thanks for a great site, Lisa. I’ve lived with candida for 30 years and your site is the most comprehensive I’ve seen. Looking forward to trying your recipes! Re: stevia. Do you use the packets for coffee/tea or pure stevia extract? The packets contain fillers as bulking agents and the pure extract is much stronger. Thanks!
How long do these keep at room temperature? I want to try this recipe so bad, but I’d like to make a big batch and i don’t want to waste any. Can I freeze them? Thanks in advance!
They’re delicious the only problem is that I have made this recipe multiple times and it always ended up being soggy. I tried cooking longer, and the top would burn and the middle would still be soggy. I have tried making them again today, but swapped the 1/2 cup of fresh diced strawberries by homemade dried strawberries and I finally got the most scrumptious, delicious muffin ever. I kept the fresh strawberry slice at the top too! Thanks for the recipe!
Quite good. I tweaked the recipe a little bit…substituted a small amount of coconut flour with almond, used 2 eggs, and a couple spoons of coconut yogurt with the milk.
