    Thanks Kate! Looks great! Should the banana be ripe or an “old” banana?

    Can I use the paper cups in my muffin tin to make these?

      I personally never use paper cups, they always stick for me and I think its because of ingredients used..

    I think I will try these, but substitue cranberries for the blue berries

    I’m in the process of impatiently waiting for a batch to come out of the oven! This will be the second time I’ve made them. They’re a great 2 SP snack!

      Sorry I am not on here all day so I probably did not see this in time, I think fresh will work just as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    Made these today; used plain 0% Greek yogurt (because that’s what I had) and only added 3/4 c of the berries. Fantastic!! So happy to have a 2 sp muffin-thank you!!

    I LOVE these muffins. Everyday breakfast for me. I’ve made strawberry, blueberry, peach and mandarin orange. I used fresh fruit for all but orange (canned mandarins). I used the same triple zero yogurt flavor as the fresh fruit except vanilla with the orange. Thank you so much for your recipes. Jill ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    What’s the purpose of using the egg white? Can I just use 2 original Egg Beaters?

    I really love the unique recipes on your site. I like that you use natural ingredients.

    I made a double recipe of these. my whole family likes them. I had fresh blueberries that i had frozen over the summer.
    It still worked ok with the bigger blueberries – they just sunk to the bottom.. I plan to wrap them in saran and freeze so i don’t eat them all. Thank you!

    1st time on your blog – stumbled on this recipe googling healthy muffin options. These came out light airy & moist – definitely a different texture than a traditional full fat muffin as an FYI to anyone considering the recipe but that’s not a complaint. I loved them & more importantly my picky critics, the 1 & 3 year old went back for 2nds, 3rds &… I used fresh blueberries, regular sugar & plain Greek yogurt – they could’ve been sweeter but perfect with a little drizzle of honey. Great recipe & I made a double batch so I’m hoping they freeze well. I’ll be back to your blog! Thanks!

      Hi, so glad you found me and I am happy you all enjoyed the muffins, yes I always let people know that most of my muffin recipes will be denser due to ingredients used, took me a little to get use to but now I prefer them that way any day ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you continue to enjoy the other recipes as much .. and yes the muffins freeze well ๐Ÿ™‚
