Blueberry Yogurt Mini Muffins

Posted on by Lisa Codina 1765 Views

I love baked goods but I’m no baker. Don’t believe me? How many “baked” desserts do you see on my Blog? Now, unbaked treats (aka. raw), those are my thing…easy, healthy, and very forgiving when it comes to tweaking the recipe.

Having said that, this recipe has quite possibly revived my faith in baking…and I’ve had my fair share of baking “accidents” (although they were usually the result of me trying to tweak the recipe). You just can’t mess with baking…Or can you?!

The conversation (to myself) while creating this recipe was along the lines of; “swap the butter for coconut oil, throw in some oats and reduce the flour content, hmm…dough looks too sticky so I’ll add a bit more flour, why not throw some flax and vanilla in there for good measure?”

The proof is in the pudding, I mean muffin! This recipe was tweaked…and this was the result:

Scrumptious, sweet, cakey, healthy muffins…with the perfect consistency, might I add!

Well, don’t just take my word for it…

    Made these this morning for my 16 month old and husband :-). I didn’t have blueberries so I used bananas. Recipe was easy, healthy and they were delicious! Proud mom.
