  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries chopped
  • Coarse sugar for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a muffin tin with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  • In another bowl, whisk together eggs, white sugar, and brown sugar until combined.
  • Add in buttermilk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract then whisk until well combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix everything together until just combined. Don’t overmix. The batter will be extremely thick.
  • Very gently add most of the strawberries to the batter.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, filling all the way to the top.
  • Add a few extra strawberries to the tops of each muffin making sure to push them down gently.
  • Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes.
  • Keeping the muffins in the oven and the door closed, reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and continue to bake for 13-15 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
