When I was a little girl, baking was one of my favorite hobbies. One of my favorite recipes was these Greek Yogurt Muffins. They were super simple to make and my mom always seemed to have the right ingredients in the house for them at all times. So whenever I knew she was having a bad day at work, I would make these for her after I got home from school to cheer her up. Even to this day, I still make these to cheer people up (myself included) and it works every time! The great thing about them is that they are pretty healthy for muffins since there are no eggs but include greek yogurt and almond milk. The fruit can easily be substituted for whatever you have around. I've used blueberries, apples, bananas, cranberries and they all hold up really well in this recipe. Be sure to watch the full instructional video at the end!
Preheat your oven to 400° fahrenheit . First things you'll want to combine are the dry ingredients into a large bowl. That included AP flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Next, in a smaller bowl, combine the greek yogurt and almond milk. For this batch I'm using a honey flavored greek yogurt, but you can use any flavor you'd like. I've done plain and vanilla with great results and I'm sure you could use one of the fruity ones for an extra flavor component. Also, if you'd prefer to use regular milk instead of almond then adjust the amount to 2/3 cup since the almond milk tends to be a little thicker.
Greek Yogurt Muffins with Cranberries
In large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Gently stir in yogurt and milk, blending just until moist. Gently fold in fruit. Fill lightly greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. If desired, lightly sprinkle muffin tops with cinnamon sugar before baking.
Bake at 400° for 18 minutes for 12 muffins or 25 minutes for 6 large muffins.
