Equipment

  • Mixing bowls
  • Muffin tins
  • Measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients
  

  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour you can substitute whichever you prefer
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 5.3 oz containers non-fat greek yogurt I used Wegman's
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries no need to defrost frozen berries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Grease muffin tins or line with paper liners if needed (or use silicone tins)
  • In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, yogurt, oil, maple syrup and vanilla
  • Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in
  • Mix ingredients together until combined. This makes a thick batter, and lumps are totally A-Ok!
  • Gently fold the blueberries into the batter until distributed. I used a large serving spoon to fold them in.
  • Fill each muffin tin equally (for regular size muffins, the tin will be just about full)
  • Bake the muffins on center rack of oven for 17-19 minutes until golden on top
  • Remove from oven and immediately turn muffins out onto a cooling rack.
  • Serve warm, though they're just as yummy at room temperature.
  • Muffins store well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

There is 5 g protein in each of these muffins, with only 1.1g of saturated fat and 8g of sugar based on the recipe analysis. Do not rely on these measurements. They are provided for your convenience.
You can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts, though that will affect nutrition calculation.
