These Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins are so moist and high in protein thanks to Greek Yogurt! Perfect to make ahead for breakfast!
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.
- To freeze muffins, place cooled muffins in a ziplock bag for up to 1 month. Soften in 30-second increments using the defrost setting or let them thaw a few hours on the counter.
- To make them gluten-free, I used Cup4Cup (affil link) and had great results.

I don’t like using sugar can a little honey be used? Maybe replace chocolate chips for banana or blueberries?
If I wanted to split the batch up to have banana, blueberries and strawberries, would it make sense just to add the fruits to each batch separately after? Any change in baking? Also, how would you change the cookie instructions for mini muffins?
The 2 large eggs doesn’t increase when I switch it to 2x or 3x. That doesn’t seem correct.
I’ve made these a few times. So Good! Do you think strawberries would work in this recipe in place of the chocolate chips for a different twist?
Sure maybe roast them! I may test them!!
Can I use all purpose flour? Would like to bake tonight and do not have cake flour in.
Sure they just won’t be as fluffy
I have this recipe memorized, I make them a ton! I baked them them in a mini muffin pan bc they pack easier in my kids lunch boxes…with mini chocolate chips and mini cinnamon chips, I also cut the sugar in 1/2! They are my family’s absolute favorite snack!
I made with blueberries and it was tasty! Very easy recipe to whip up. Next time I’ll have to try with the chocolate chips.
They come up 9 points when I hit the WW button ( which I love btw) that’s pretty high for me.
I just made these with cup for cup and I really like them!
I don’t like cooking . But you make it look so easy .
Look so GOOD !
Have you ever tried this with whole wheat flour?
I made them once with 1/2 almond flour 1/2 AP…and once with 1/2 wheat, 1/2 all purpose…they all turned out good! The almond flour gives it an almost cornbread type texture…
Is there Any chance to get recept in gram?
Can fat free plain yogurt be used instead of Greek? My husband accidentally bought a tub of it instead of Greek yogurt!
I make these muffins every time I visit my granddaughter; she calls them “grandma muffins” and absolutely loves them. She lives in London, so when I visit her there it’s a bit of a challenge converting oven temps and recipe amounts – grams vs. tablespoons, etc.., but I’ve gotten a math lesson in the process!
Has anyone added Protein powder instead of flour?
Is there a typo in this recipe? Like the flour maybe? It’s 1 3/4 cups right? Cause everything was mixing together just fine until I added my flour. I didn’t even add the whole amount. More like 1 1/4 cup and it was thick and like biscuit dough. I had to add another egg and water to thin it out. Muffins didn’t rise much and are really dense, but still tasty.
This is an old recipe and never had complaints so wonder if you did something wrong without realizing?
