Why I Love This Recipe

It's time for me to cut back on the calories...but it really isn't too hard. I just tweaked a recipe by adding some whole wheat flour, subbing yogurt for cream, canola oil for butter, and by making them smaller. I think you will like them!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup all purpose flour, divided
1 cup white whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus an additional 2 tablespoons for topping
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
1 (6 oz) container low-fat Greek yogurt (I used strawberry)
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup canola oil or coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.; line cupcakes pans with 18 liners.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup white whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar, and orange peel; set aside.

Toss the frozen berries (if the strawberries are huge, cut them into smaller pieces) with the remaining 1/4 cup flour. Mix the yogurt, buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla together in a small bowl or measuring cup. Add the berries and the yogurt mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed...batter will be lumpy...don't over mix.

With a cookie scoop, divide the batter among the muffin cups. Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the batter. Bake the muffins for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
