Mini Eggless Yogurt Muffins


These mini muffins are so easy to make and taste just like regular muffins. I may be using it as my new “go to” muffin base in the future. I whipped up four batches in under an hour!

The best part? Each one is only about 60 calories. Prep work is limited to one bowl and a mixing spoon. Can you tell I’m super excited about this recipe?

Before Thanksgiving, I was attempting to eat a little healthier and exercise more. I got an UP24 by Jawbone to count how many steps I was walking and I was a little shocked that I was averaging less than 2,000 a day.

So, after that, I tried to walk more, but it was nearly impossible to reach the 10,000 steps goal the UP band had set for me. I persuaded Mr. K to take walks with me outside, which allowed me to easily achieve around 7,000-8,000 steps a day. I’ve been pretty good at keeping those numbers up, even during Thanksgiving weekend when I went home. But these last two days it’s been rainy non-stop and I feel like a slug, barely moving.

Hopefully. I can get back into my normal walking routine so I can eat more of these muffins. I didn’t even bother to count how many of these I ate while creating this recipe, especially since it took me several test batches to get the texture and taste I was trying to achieve. I can’t wait to make these again and maybe add some blueberries in them. Look how fluffy they are!

To keep these moist and fluffy, I used Noosa Yoghurt. Have you had it before? It’s an Aussie-style yogurt. I was introduced to Noosa by some readers who recommended that I try their limited edition pumpkin flavor sold at Target. I immediately went out to get it and I loved it! It’s not a low-fat yogurt, but it sure is delicious. I can imagine how good it would be as a frozen yogurt in the summer…

Anyway, just days after I bought the pumpkin yogurt, Noosa contacted me to see if I wanted to try their yogurts and create a recipe. So of course I agreed!

I was given some coupons to get more yogurt. They have a lot of unique ones to choose from like strawberry rhubarb which I’ve had in Europe but rarely see in the US. I ended up getting coconut, strawberry rhubarb and tart cherry. I really like how the fruit yogurts have a fruit puree mixed in. I made the muffins with all three and enjoyed them all, but especially liked the coconut and the tart cherry.


I can’t wait to make these again! I need to load up on more yogurt!

Mini Eggless Yogurt Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz Noosa Yoghurt (I recommend tart cherry or coconut; please note that the smallest container has 80z so you will be using less than one container)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp oil

Notes: You may be able to make this recipe with another yogurt, but I have not tested it. If you try, make sure you use a full fat, thick-style yogurt. There is minimal amount of fat in this recipe since it uses the fat from the yogurt.

Make sure you use cake flour otherwise the texture is not the same.

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line mini muffin paper with liners. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix with a large wooden mixing spoon until everything is combined. It shouldn't take too long and you don't want to overmix.

2. Scoop batter into muffin pan, about 3/4 full. Bake for about 10 minutes or until tops begin to turn a light brown and muffins are fully cooked.

  1. Pumpkin yogurt sounds amazing! These muffins look like the perfect way to use it 🙂

  2. How did you decide on the UP24 vs. the UP? I’ve been thinking of getting one, and I’d like to know your reasons.

    • I chose Up24 because it seemed like the reviews were better than UP. But, to tell you the truth, I want to try the Fit band to compare. I originally leaned towards UP because a few of my friends who have The Fit complained that the band breaks too easily and it counts other movements that arent steps. I like that the Up24 band is sturdy, but it’s a little bulky. I also don’t like that it buzzes you for inactivity, though I can see why some people want those reminders. It does seem to count pretty well though. If anything, sometimes I think it counts under.

  3. I made these cute mini muffins with 0%fat blueberry greek yogurt and they turned out just yummyy!!!
