Servings 12 servings
- 2 1/2 cups organic all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup 2% milk
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- ½ cup canola oil
- 1 egg
For the sweet muffins
- peanut butter 1 teaspoon per muffin
- strawberry jam 1 teaspoon per muffin
For the savory muffins
- grated zucchini 1 teaspoon per muffin
- shredded cheddar cheese 1 teaspoon per muffin
Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a muffin tin with 12 parchment paper liners (or greased paper liners)
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients, including the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together; set aside.
In another large bowl, mix the wet ingredients, including the milk, yogurt, oil and egg.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to mix until just combined. Don’t over mix.
Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups. Add the optional mix-ins on top and use a knife, toothpick or small spoon to swirl them into the batter.
Bake the muffins in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin liners.
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container with a paper towel under them to absorb any moisture. They will last about 4-5 days in the fridge. You can also freeze the muffins for up to 3 months.
