When I started this blog, strawberries were one of my go to ingredient for recipes. Now looking back at it, I understand why. Obviously having started this blog in the springs is a huge part of that but the other thing is that strawberries are one of my favorite fruit ever!
I could seriously eat strawberries for every meal of the day and wouldn’t be bored of them, and that’s how this recipe came around.
These are the best strawberry jam stuffed muffins
These strawberry jam stuffed muffins are light, packed with berries and will brighten up any morning. The actual muffin batter is made with greek yogurt to make them rich and moist at the same time. It then gets a generous amount of sliced strawberries added to the batter and is then filled with fresh strawberry jam.

How to store strawberry jam-filled muffins?
You can store these muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. I like to have them cold right out of the refrigerator but I know others might prefer them a bit warmer. Pop them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds and enjoy!
Freezing strawberry muffins
You can also store these muffins in the freezer. Place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months. Whenever you are ready to enjoy them, thaw them in the freezer overnight or on the counter top if you want them a bit faster.
You can then either heat them up in the oven at 350F for 5 minutes of in the microwave fro 10-20 seconds.
When adding the streusel topping to the muffins, gently press the streusel down the batter so that it sticks to the actual muffin while baking.

Delicious! I made these with raspberry jam, raspberries, and raspberry greek yogurt (reduced the sugar). My family enjoyed these thouroughly and begged for more.
That sounds delightful!!
Wonderful little beauties! I chose not to add the fresh strawberries since it is January and strawberries are not that great. I will definitely add the fresh berries when they are in season again. These muffins are just delicious. Will be making these often. Thank you for a great recipe!
You are so welcome!! Also this is your sign to try them again with the in season strawberries!
