Orange glazed yogurt muffins

May 7, 2017

I was looking to create another 2 point yogurt muffin as those recipes seem to do so well with everyone, because who does’nt like having a 2 point muffin 🙂 These orange yogurt muffins are only 2 smart points without the glaze but I strongly recommend spending the extra point and making the glaze, it finishes them off with such a sweetness and really 3 points for a muffin is still fantastic! Bake some up today, I promise you will love them!

Serves: 10
 
3SP/2PP (with glaze)
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp liquid egg whites (I buy the carton of egg whites)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ½ cup plain (or vanilla) yogurt, I use the President Choice Skyr Icelandic yogurt, 0% greek is fine too)
  • 3 Tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp fresh grated orange zest (use a grater and grate the peel from your orange)
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 3 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionery sugar)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp fresh grated orange zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular sized muffin tin with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together your egg and egg whites, add in sugar and stir well.
  3. Mix in apple sauce, yogurt and orange juice.
  4. Stir in your flour, baking powder & soda then fold in your orange zest.
  5. Fill 10 muffin cups with batter and bake for 16-18 minutes.
  6. While muffins are cooling make your glaze, in a small bowl mix your icing sugar and fresh squeezed orange juice together, stir in orange zest.
  7. Using a spoon top muffins with glaze, I found it worked best topping the muffin with glaze just before you are ready to eat it, the glaze will store well with some saran wrap over it.
  8. Makes 10 muffins at 3 smart points each (2 points plus) if you do not want the glaze the muffins are 2 SP each, store in a sealed container and best in fridge after a day or two.
