Blueberry Yogurt Muffins


I wanted to make something different than our usual Saturday morning pancakes (shocker I know!) and had some fresh blueberries in the house that were calling to be baked up. My kids love muffins and I haven't made them in a while, so why not? I played with a Betty Crocker Recipe, changing for what I had in the house. The results speak for themselves. My oldest son ate 6 before lunch (regular size, not minis) and my youngest who will pick fruit out of most things ate 3 without any problem at all. I guess I have to make them again sometime :o)

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup strawberry yogurt
1 egg
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Splenda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup fresh blueberries

Heat oven to 400*. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat together the milk, oil, yogurt and egg. Stir in the flour, Splenda, baking powder and salt until flour is all moistened. Fold in blueberries. Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Bake 20 minutes (or until golden brown). Enjoy!
*I sprinkled the tops with the PC brand Sugar/Cinnamon/Chocolate grinder just before putting them into the oven, which made them even tastier.

A superb little muffin recipe. Like that the yogurt is flavored for a change...sometimes I have to use up the 'lunch' yogurts which are always flavored...this is a good one to do that with.

the combination of the strawberry yogurt and the blueberries must have been fantastic! I bet the muffins were really moist with the yogurt too.

What a great way to start a weekend...smelling these beauties baking in the oven.

Strawberry yogurt with the blueberries - a delicious idea.

Sounds good and I think my kiddos would love 'em, too, but I still don't think mine would take them over pancakes. :) Pancakes are king on Sundays!

Those muffins look great and yummy. Just two quick questions: would vegetable or sunflower oil work as good as canola one? If using sugar instead of Splenda, should I add less sugar or decrease the amount? Thank you.

Frockandfork - thanks for your questions! The original recipe I based it on used sugar, not Splenda and vegetable oil, not canola (I just always use canola as my son has soy allergies), sunflower oil should work as well, or an applesauce substitution
