How to make healthy strawberry muffins with fresh strawberries. This is an easy recipe that be vegan, dairy free, or egg free. You can make it with all wheat flour or use part white flour and part wheat flour.

I used fresh strawberries, but this would also be good with raspberries, blueberries, or another fruit.

This uses applesauce instead of oil. I like applesauce because it's healthier and makes for a lighter muffin. You can use refined coconut oil for the butter.

I don't usually use all wheat flour because the muffins can get dense, even with the applesauce. I recommend using both white flour and wheat flour. I prefer to use a white whole wheat flour because I think it's better for baking.
