Tonight I continued my quest to health-ify yet another recipe. By substituting plain greek yogurt for oil, and whole-wheat flour for white flour, I have made these better for you than before! They still have 1/2c margerine and 1/2c of sugar, but as far as muffins go they’re not too bad. A muffin you’d buy from a coffee shop can be upwards of 400-500calories, so at least these are smaller normal sized portions, and you’re getting some protein from the greek yogurt. A win-win, yes?
To make these delicious snacks you will need:
- 1/2c square margerine (softened)
- 1/2c sugar
- 2/3c plain yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2c whole-wheat flour
- 1/2tsp salt
- 2 1/4tsp baking powder
- 1/3c chocolate chips
Mix together the butter, sugar, yogurt, and egg. Beat in the rest of the ingredients until “just mixed”. Spoon into muffin tins, bake at 350 for 18-20min. Remove from tins and cool on a wire rack.
