Healthy Raspberry Muffins with Yogurt

IMG_20171111_135521Until I started posting these recipes on my blog, I never realized how many muffins my family eats!  This is another favorite recipe that is nice to serve after the over-indulgence of Thanksgiving.
This is a somewhat healthy treat. The muffins have less sugar, relying on the raspberries to add the sweetness. The yogurt mades the muffins extra moist without adding too much oil.
Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (6 oz.) container raspberry yogurt or vanilla
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup raspberries (if using frozen do not thaw, may need longer cooking time)
Materials:
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • 2 bowls
  • Muffin tin
  • Cooking spray or muffin liners
Directions:
1.  Preheat oven 400°.  Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or set in paper liners.
2.  Mix together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside.  Make a hole in the center.
3.  In another bowl beat together egg, oil, and yogurt.
4.  Add yogurt mixture to the hole in the dry mixture.  Stir until almost blended.
5.  Carefully fold in the raspberries.  Do not over mix.  Fill muffin tin.  Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
If have leftover muffins store them covered at room temp for 2 days or refrigerate them for up to 5 days.  Freeze leftovers for up to 3 months. (Yeah–they never last that long!)

While you enjoy your treat, why not listen to a good book? Starter Zone, the first book of my new YA/LitRPG series, The Revelation Chronicles, is now available on Audible!

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
