Speaking of baking, I am a HUGE fan of baking with olive oil. I use olive oil instead of butter in many of my recipes. From brownies, to sugar cookies, to pumpkin cake, I prefer using olive oil and the results are just delicious.

The same is true for these chocolate strawberry muffins… olive oil works great and results in a healthier fluffy lighter textured muffin.

Ingredients needed to make these dairy-free strawberry muffins:

  • all purpose flour
  • salt
  • baking powder
  • olive oil
  • brown sugar ( or coconut sugar)
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • almond milk ( or any non- dairy milk of your choice)
  • chopped fresh strawberries
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips (they can be dairy-free or any type of chocolate that you choose)

Tips and tricks:

Olive oil- to make muffins with olive oil, you have to make sure you are using a good quality olive oil. It can be light in taste or color or deep in taste or color. It all depends on what you like.

Batter- the batter here will be thick and sticky. This is normal and it actually helps make the muffins maintain their shape. Make sure not to overmix it!

Strawberries- use fresh strawberries! When you chop them, you want them to be larger pieces. They should be about 1/2 inch in size.

Baking- keep an eye on your muffins. I would check them around the 20 minute mark. If they are already starting to look harder and golden, test them with a tooth pick to see if the tooth pick comes out dry.
