This post is a part of my series on bringing meals to others. These muffins are perfect to bring to a neighbor, friend or someone else who is going through a hard time and could use a quick meal. Bring these along with a dinner meal or just by themselves for an unexpected treat. For more info on this series visit this page.
I’ve talked about my family’s obsession with muffins in the past.
It’s pretty obvious at this point that muffins are a big part of our breakfast routine (see: strawberry muffins, caramel apple crumb muffins, no sugar added blueberry muffins, blueberry orange muffins, blueberry chia seed muffins… ). I think my child may actually be addicted to muffins 😉
But I can’t help it. They’re SO easy to have first thing in the morning before making a larger breakfast. They’re also perfect for having as an afternoon snack.
I love that there are so many varieties of muffins to make because with how often we make them, I love having some variety! When I make muffins for my toddler, I like to keep them sugar free. For this recipe, simply omit the chocolate chips and the rest of the recipe has no added sugar. I usually do half a batch with and half without!?
I used Nancy’s Whole Milk Yogurt to make these muffins. I’ve tried a lot of different yogurts over the years and have found that it’s really hard to find ones without added sugar. We pretty much exclusively buy plain yogurt for this reason. One of the things I love most about Nancy’s Yogurt is that all of their yogurts are made without added sugar (they never use cane sugar)!?
I’ve been making these healthy banana muffins for a few months now after figuring out a good recipe that worked for us. I wanted to try adding yogurt to that recipe to make them even creamier and delicious. It worked perfectly! The yogurt gave these muffins a perfect consistency and even added some extra protein to these muffins, which I’m always a fan of.
Making a batch of these muffins at the beginning of the week is the perfect way to have some easy breakfasts made ahead of time or quick snacks for on the go. But if your family is anything like mine, you’ll need to double this recipe if you want them to last at all in your house. On that note, I?love this blog post about how to store muffins!
