Here is a recipe for those who are trying to stay away from sugary treats. Although there are no added sugars to these muffins, the natural sweetener in the strawberries might add up if you eat too many.

If you only have frozen berries, run them under room temperature water and let them sit for about 30 minutes so the excess water and juice can drip off before adding them to the batter.
You can also substitute the oil with applesauce at a 1:1 ratio if you wish to do so.

You will need some superfine almond flour (it has the perfect mild flavor to not overpower the strawberries). The writer also offers alternatives to make it dairy-free.
