Strawberry-Orange Yogurt Muffins

Strawberries were on sale at Costco this week and I couldn't help myself... even though I knew deep down I wouldn't be able to eat the entire package before they expired, I bought them anyway. I figured it would force me to get a little creative and use them, instead of tossing what we couldn't finish. Sure enough, I stumbled upon this delicious recipe over at Baked Perfection for strawberry muffins. I really liked the recipe the first time I made it, but I had an idea that I thought would put it over the top... adding the orange. Did you know that strawberry and orange together make magic? Well its true... and this recipe proves it.
Recipe: Strawberry-orange yogurt muffins
Recipe from Emmy in her Element Adapted from Baked Perfection
Makes 12 muffins
2 eggs
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
1/8 cup fresh orange juice
1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest
1 1/2 cups diced strawberries

 Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Pre grease muffin tin with pam or use muffin liners.
In a medium bowl mix together, eggs, sugar vegetable oil. yogurt, orange juice, vanilla, and zest.
Combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon and add slowly to wet ingredients mixing just until incorporated. Fold in strawberries. Scoop into muffin tins until filled and bake for 18-20 minutes or until muffins have popped up and are golden brown on top. Let cool and serve within 24 hours or freeze in a ziplock when cooled to room temperature.

Be sure to enjoy these muffins within 24 hours as the strawberries soften significantly after baking. These work great to make ahead and freeze if you don't need them until later!
