Whole wheat Strawberry muffins that uses greek yogurt, honey and whole wheat flour for a healthier muffin. These little guys are easy, moist, and super flavorful, especially that crunchy cinnamon sugar on top.
Most often dinner is not really a concern for me. I usually already know what I’m going to make or I’ll throw something together based on what sounds good or the produce in the fridge. However, occasionally the thought of making dinner makes me want to scratch out my own eyeballs. Kinda how I’m feeling right now actually. I’m typing this post for tomorrow morning, I’ve got a migraine that is about to take over any moment, and nothing sounds good or inspiring, but dinner has to happen. So what do I decide? Well, the hubs is still at the gym so we are going for strawberry muffins. He probably wont be thrilled when he gets home from a hard work out to carbville, but he never complains about my cooking, so I’m safe.
The muffins totally ended up being delicious, and I felt better eating them knowing that they weren’t some boxed junk or stuffed full of butter and sugar. Not a super well-balanced meal, but we did have bowls of fresh fruit with it. The best part is, they aren’t dry and crumbly like many whole wheat muffins. I swear it’s the Chobani.

Can You Substitute Regular Yogurt for Greek Yogurt in Recipes?
Greek is a little tangier in taste than regular yogurt so it lends itself well to recipes.
But, regular yogurt tends to work really well as a substitute in baking.

- Generously grease a muffin tin (I used a Texas size muffin tin and got 6 muffins) and fill the muffins holes 3/4 the way full, and sprinkle a good amount of cinnamon sugar on top.
- Bake at 425 for 17-20 minutes or until done and golden brown.
