Strawberry Yogurt Muffins

DSC_0241

I’m very much into making muffins recently…not sure you have noticed…

oh, you haven’t?

well, the streets of shanghai are full of fruit stands selling fresh, red, sweet strawberries so last Sunday on my way back home I couldn’t help but buy a basket and make this moisture, healthy muffins. I’m glad I did cause I fell in love with them at first bite!

Try this soon!

Ingredients (makes 12 muffins):

  • 1-2/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh strawberries

Whisk eggs and sugar

then add in yogurt

and with the mixer on slow pour in melted butter

Next up add the flour and baking powder together with the vanilla extract

You will get a smooth and dense batter….don’t eat it yet…please!

Chop up about 2 cups of fresh strawberries

and add them into the batter

gently fold them into the batter

Fill muffin cups lined with paper liners two-thirds full

Bake at 375° for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack

Enjoy this moisture, fresh and healthy muffins!

Yummy!

    Hi Daniela!

    These muffins must be to die for…! Would you mind giving us the recipe using grams, not cups, as a measurement? Cups and co. don’t work well with me ;)

    thanks and keep going!
