Pro tips:

  • When chopping the apple, keep the peel on; it adds texture, color and most importantly, fiber, to the muffins!
  • These will be very large “pop-over” style muffins, so don’t be alarmed by filling the muffin tins much higher than you are accustomed to.

Ingredients

!Muffin Mix:

1½ cups all purpose flour

½ cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

⅓ cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
