  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup half stick butter, softened and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon


  • 1/2 cup 1 stick melted butter
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or 1/2 cup water and 1 tsp. vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt or fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin trays with 12-14 cupcake liners.

To make the crumble topping:

  • Add all ingredients into a small bowl. Use your fingers, two forks or a pastry cutter to combine it all. Set aside.

To make muffins:

  • In a large bowl, add all wet ingredients (butter, syrup, vanilla, buttermilk, yogurt, and eggs). Whisk until fully combined.
  • Then add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, stirring until it is all combined. Add in the fresh chopped strawberries and gently fold in.
  • Divide batter among prepared baking tins. Add one teaspoon of jam at the center of each and using a toothpick, swirl in gently. Be careful not to stir completely so your batter doesn't turn pink.
  • Add your crumble topping to the muffins and bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let them sit in the tins for 10 minutes. Then transfer to cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before enjoying with a cup of coffee. 


Feel free to swap out strawberries for any other berry you prefer!
Top with a little glaze if you want an extra bit of sweetness. Just combine powdered sugar with a touch of milk and stir until desired consistency!
