Oatmeal Raisin Yogurt Muffins


I often buy the big tub of yogurt for my girls when it goes on sales.  I came upon this recipe when I opened a strawberry nonfat yogurt for my girls.  This easy and healthy muffin recipe attracted me at first glance.   As my readers know, I am a sucker for healthy and easy recipe, so this whisk and bake recipe got my vote.  This strawberry yogurt came with pieces of strawberry bits so it was a plus and the muffins turned out well.  Not very sweet and good for breakfast.


Both my girls loved this muffin as well.  Evy would take this as a snack for school and the daddy can grab one before going to the office.



Recipe adapted from Dannon Light & Fit Recipes attached to the yogurt I bought.

Ingredients:

(A)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins, plumped

(B)
  • 1 cup Dannon Light & Fit strawberry or vanilla nonfat yogurt (or any brand)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil or sunflower oil


Method:

1.  Preheat oven to 375'F.

2.  Place paper liners in a muffin tin.

3.  In a big bowl, whisk together (A).

4.  In another bowl, whisk together (B).  

5.  Add (B) into (A) and use a spatula and blend both wet ingredients and dry ingredients together.

6.  Spoon batter into prepared paper liners and bake for 22-25 minutes (I baked mine for 23 minutes).  

~Yields 10-12 small muffins.  If 10 muffins is about 180 calories each and if 12 muffins is about 150 calories each.

These looks so yummy! I love muffins but so often they are so unhealthy. I bet blueberry yogurt would taste delicious, too!

Thanks for a lower fat muffin option. I made these with dried apricots instead of raisins. I added a few more spices- allspice and cloves. I added a little orange juice to the wet portion along with some vanilla-delicious!
