1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup chopped strawberries
2 eggs
1 cup yogurt (I used nonfat vanilla)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Coarse sugar (optional)

In a medium bowl whisk together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar and baking soda.  Stir in strawberries.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, butter and vanilla extract.  Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet until well combined.

Divide batter evenly among a 12-cup greased muffin tin or line with paper liners.  If you want strawberries to stay at the top of your muffins, cut up a few extra and place several pieces on top of the batter in each muffin cup.  I also sprinkled each muffin with coarse sugar.  Bake for 18-25 minutes in a 375 degree oven until the tops are golden brown.  Mine were done in 18 minutes at this temperature.

Remove immediately from muffin tins and cool on a wire rack.
