Strawberry Oatmeal Cupcakes

Today is the third day of our mega marathon with baking theme. For the first week I wanted to post cupcakes. First I thought I will post plain cupcakes, then I realized that one more interesting thing in my recipes. I am using one fresh ingredient in each recipe. For the first day I used fresh sugarcane juice, the second day is with fresh grated coconut. Now for the third day I am using fresh strawberries.
                                                    I have oats with milk or fruit juice for breakfast, few day's back got bored with plain oats. Started adding some flavors to the plain oats and was searching for the flavored oats in the market and find this strawberry flavor oats. But some how I didn't like the flavor and wanted to use in some baked recipe. On 50th BM celebrations time we brought fresh strawberries from Waltax road and  Some one left one pack of fresh strawberries. I used those strawberries to make this cupcakes with that flavored oats. Any way thanks to that person who left those strawberries. And thanks to Kamalika for that cute cups and Vaishali for those colorfull napkins. And those cupcake liners yaar who gave that they are perfect size, cute once thank you so much.
                                                              Since the original recipe includes one egg, I didn't use egg, replaced with egg-replacer. They turned out soft and moist with fresh strawberries. The flavored oats give a very little flavor so I added a little vanilla essence....

Good to know you liked oats and strawberry combo. I do that when I have excess strawberries at home. I either use plain oats and throw in some choco chips or get choco flavor oats. I like choco and strawberry combo.

Your muffins came out good and love the way the strawberries are peeping out.
