These vegan and gluten-free strawberry muffins aren’t overly sweet and make for a great breakfast on the go. They remind me of quaint little strawberry shortcakes!

Vegan Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake Muffins FAQs
Can I use fruit other than strawberries?
You can use pretty much any kind of fruit you want in your muffins. Just make sure to chop it up beforehand if it's bigger than a raspberry. I would personally love to try this recipe with peaches!
How long will these muffins last?
These muffins will have a shorter shelf life depending on what kind of fruit you put in them. With strawberries or other large fruit that you needed to chop first, the muffins will get soggy more quickly than with small berries. You can store these muffins in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Instead of strawberry soy yogurt, could I substitute soft tofu puréed with a few strawberries?
Sure! Or other substitutes would be applesauce; or coconut yogurt.
