Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins

My ricotta cheese chocolate chip muffins have been so popular, they inspired me to try a Greek yogurt version. These Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins were such a hit with my daughter Madison! She said they are the BEST muffins she ever tasted! That’s huge considering she’s pretty picky, and perfect as I found a new make-ahead breakfast recipe to add to my rotation.

I put the leftovers in the refrigerator after the second day, then popped them in the microwave a few seconds to get the chill out. She’s been eating them all week with no complaints.

Yogurt Muffin Notes:

  • I felt these tasted just right, not too sweet. If you want to make this a little lighter, you cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and the butter to 2 tbsp so they will be 6 points each.
  • To lower the carbs, swap the sugar for Sugar alcohols such as xylitol or erythritol, or Splenda the muffins will be 5 SP each.
  • Swap the chocolate chips for blueberries for variations.
  • Refrigerate up to 3 to 4 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Soften a few seconds in the microwave before eating.
  • To make them gluten-free, I used Cup4Cup (affil link) and had great results.

Ingredients:

  • cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups cake flour (see notes below for GF)*
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 large egg whites (or two large eggs)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 10 ounces (1 1/4 cups ) 0% Greek yogurt
  • 9 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin liners and spray with oil.
  2. Mix flour and baking soda with a whisk in a medium bowl.
  3. In a large bowl with a hand mixer, mix and cream the butter and sugar on medium setting for about 2 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites and vanilla with a whisk, add to bowl with butter/sugar mixture.
  5. Mix in the yogurt, then flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined, 1 minute.
  6. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips and spoon to lined muffin tins about 3/4 filled (I used an ice cream scoop).
  7. Bake at 375° for until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool before eating.

*I tested them with Cup4Cup gluten-free flour at a 1 to 1 ratio and they were perfect!
