Finely milled whole wheat pastry flour keeps these lightly sweetened muffins light and fluffy instead of dense while stirring leftover cooked strawberry oats into the batter gives it extra texture and flavour. Nutty almond flavour comes from using both extract and sliced almonds to top each muffin. Once cooled, tightly wrap these muffins in plastic and freeze for up to 1 month.
