Apple cinnamon yogurt muffins recipe

For snacks I like to try some things out, this time I wanted to make little yogurt-based muffins. For flavor I chose apple and cinnamon, one of my favorite flavor combinations that I love to bake with during the colder months.

Because just using yogurt as a base makes your batter very thick, I also used semi-skimmed milk. That made the batter just a little nicer to work with.

Maple syrup muffins

I decided I didn’t want to use granulated sugar for these muffins, so I decided to reach for the bottle of maple syrup. To be clear, that’s still sugar and not necessarily a “healthy” choice. Regardless, these muffins are more responsible than I normally make them, though. Especially if you leave out the cinnamon sugar on top 😉 .

No maple syrup in stock? You can also use honey or just granulated sugar. You can also vary in the amount. I used very little syrup, feel free to add more if you want sweeter muffins.

Tips for yogurt muffins

Use silicone cupcake liners

These silicone cupcake liners make it a lot easier to release your muffins. I always use them when I make muffins as a snack.

Use a cupcake pan

Even though silicone cups are sturdier than the paper variety, I still like using a cupcake baking pan. It’s easier to move your cupcakes around and they hold their shape well.

Pack by piece

I always pack snacks by the piece and then store them in the freezer. That way I always have a supply of delicious homemade snacks.
