I decided to add to my growing list of 2 point greek yogurt muffins, like my popular pumpkin banana yogurt muffins and my strawberry banana yogurt muffins , both equally delicious and these new apple cinnamon greek yogurt muffins are a great addition. Who doesn’t love a 2 point muffin, you can have 2 for a quick grab and go breakfast and not worry about using too many points. I made mine with big chunks of diced honey crisp apple to sweeten them up but you can use any apple and if you want your apple pieces smaller no problem. These tasty muffins are just 2 points each on WW.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
Thanks so much for a muffin without bananas! Can’t wait to try.
Hope you enjoy them, I have a few without banana’s and loaves as well 🙂
These are the best muffins ever! These and halo top are my go to sweets!
So glad you enjoy them Carrie 🙂 WIsh I could eat Halo but it upsets my tummy 🙁
What I absolutely ADORE about your amazing recipes is that they don’t include nasty sugar substitutes so I’m able to safely eat them while nursing! Thank you sooo much!!❤️❤️❤️❤️
Awesome, yeah I try not to use them. So glad you are enjoying them 🙂
Looks delicious! Does the 2SP total include the sprinkling of cinnamon & sugar, or will that add points?
no it won’t add points, I did incl it
I tried making these twice and both times they did not bake all the way through. It’s a soggy wet mess both times. Any advice? And how are you getting 2 points for these? I got way more than that from the WW app.
Hi Jennifer, are you using the nutritional numbers in your App because that incl all ingredients even the apples which are 0SP .. the breakdown on my WW app is 13SP flour, 4SP brown sugar, 4SP eggs (green only) and 2SP yogurt (green only) these muffins are denser due to ingredients used however they should not be soggy, it is hard to know what went wrong without being there
I would like to know what kind of flour AP or self rising.
Hi, I usually use all-purpose unless otherwise stated
Made these today and they seem a little wet inside (I made the gingerbread banana muffins the other day and cooked these for the same amount of time). I realize its because of the apple, but did you find this to be the case for you as well? Maybe I need to cook these longer ?
They will be dense as are all my yogurt based muffins, but should not be wet, you can try cooking a little longer
These are awesome!!!!
Glad you enjoyed them 🙂
This muffin recipe looks really delicious and I really like the flavors that have been used. I also like the texture that has been created by mixing diced apples into them. Its also so quick and easy to make. Its great for breakfast or a snack at any time of the day.
My husband and I both love these!
I wonder how they would be with pineapple instead of apples?
Hi Cathy, so glad you both enjoyed them.. I think pineapple would be yummy, just dice into small pieces 🙂 let me know if you try it
I’m ready to just come live with you. Lol. Thank you for ALL the wonderful recipes!!
Haha, if you clean I can make a deal 🙂
You used regular flour in these, not self-rising? My friend shared your IG page with me and I am so happy she did.
Hi there, hope you enjoy all the recipes, yes just regular flour 🙂 I add in baking powder
Can we use almond flour instead?
Hi Nina, I am not familiar with baking with almond flour so you’d need to do some trial and error
Oh my! These are good, hard to believe they’re 2 points!
So glad you enjoy them Cindy 🙂
Have you ever tried silicone muffin cups? Saves using spray . Never stick and can be used over and over. Love your recipes.
Thanks Leslie, yes I do have some, I don’t know why I don’t use them more often, I guess just a personal preference
Thank you. They turned out great! A nice change from all the blueberry and banana muffins I have been making!
So glad you enjoyed them 🙂
I love these! I have just started weight watchers and your recipes are such a great help! Thsnk you so much for sharing!! 😀
You are very welcome Tina, so glad you are enjoying them and good luck on your journey!!
Can you use plain non fat yogurt or do you need to use Greek?
You can try regular but greek is a much thicker yogurt so the texture might be altered
I found this recipe while searching through your blog at 3am when I couldn’t sleep lol. I got up and made them and yes! So glad I did!! They’re delish!!!
Haha that sounds like me, always awake when I don’t want to be 😉 so glad you enjoyed them!
I made the apple muffins today, not yet tried them but i used splenda instead of reg sugar will that change the nutrition information
Hi Tammy, yeah it might although I am not sure what to as I only know the way I made them, hope you enjoy them
Hi Susan, you could use more ground turkey since it is a zero food, or through extra veggies of your choice in there
Ooops i ment splenda brown sugar
Wow! Those are great! Thank you!
Hope you enjoy them 🙂
I love, love, love your recipes! One request – is there any way to make these muffins without sugar or brown sugar, maybe using honey, agave, maple syrup, fruit or fruit juice? How would you account for loss of dry and added wet? Hoping…..
Thanks Janice 🙂 so glad you are enjoying them! Yes you can definitely use honey, I’d add in a few extra Tbsp of flour to compensate, and you can even melt a little honey down and drizzle over muffins before you bake them to give them a nice sweet topping 🙂
Made these today, I did not have a large apple, used a medium sized Granny Smith and added two stalks of diced rhubarb. Also, I used a silicone muffin pan. I used raw sugar for the cinnamon topping and divided between the bottom of the muffin pan and the top of the muffins. I like bigger muffins because I will usually each only one instead of two or three of the smaller ones. I got six nice muffins from your recipe and figured each muffin was still only 3 points. and they were delicious! thanks for the recipe!
Hi Steven, I’m so glad you enjoyed them and made them work for you 🙂 3 points for a big muffin is a win in my books!!
Hi for 6 muffins how long to cook them
How many calories for one muffin? Can you use bananas also
All the nutritional info is at the bottom of the recipe, I only made this recipe as it is shown so I am not sure how much using banana would change it but check my other muffin recipes, there are several with banana
Can I make this without the whole apple in it? Would I have to add any additional applesauce? Thanks
Hi, I’m not sure how they would be, might be a little small and bland, but you can try
Can they be doubled and then frozen?
Sure, they will freeze well and I don’t see why you can’t double the recipe
I added a 1\2 reason of nutmeg . These are so good
I used 1 tbsp. splenda brown sugar to bring it down to 1 SP per muffin. These are amazing !!! taste like homemade apple strudel.
Thanks for the tip 🙂 so glad you enjoyed them
I just made these for breakfast. These were great. Great flavor and very satisfying. I used ff vanilla Greek yogurt and only one tablespoon of brown sugar. I also cooked them 5 minutes longer so they wouldn’t be mushy inside. The only thing I would change is add a pinch of salt. But a great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
So glad you enjoyed them Toni, I usually don’t bake with salt just a personal preference but yes definitely if you are used to it 🙂
These are really good! The only change I would personally make is add more apple. Thanks for the recipe!
So glad you enjoyed them 🙂
WW Calculator comes up with 3 Freestyle Smart Points; still a bargain!
Sometimes it comes down to a different brand of something, I can only go off what my App tells me 🙂
Could I substitute the flour for almond meal?
Hi Karen, I am not experienced too much baking with almond flour/meal but I know it bakes different, all I can suggest is to try it
Looks fabulous! I am going to try these tomorrow!
Hope you enjoyed them 🙂
Want to make mini muffins for kids. How many will it make & cooking times?
Hi Kathy, sorry I only made as full size so I am not too sure you’d have to see for yourself, as far as baking times mini muffins on average bake for about 14-16 min
I only have self rising flour. Can I use that in this recipe? Would I just omit the baking powder?
Hi Nicole, sure you can use it.. I’d still add a pinch of BP if it was me 🙂
Hi! I just made these tonight and will make them again. I used regular flour and they fell a bit when I took them out of the oven. Wondering if self-rising flour would have been better?
HI, most of my muffin recipes will sink a little when removed from the oven and it is due to ingredients used, like swapping out oils & butter for yogurt & applesauce etc.. you could try self-rising flour but they will still likely drop a bit ..so glad you enjoyed them 🙂
These were yummy. When I put the ingredients into the WW recipe counter, they are 3 points on Green, not 2.
Glad you enjoyed the muffins, please know that products can vary, my breakdown in my App for green is eggs 4, brown sugar 4, yogurt 2, flour 13 which gives me 2SP on green
I tried these tonight, and they were a hit! Thanks for sharing your recepies!
You are very welcome, so glad you enjoyed the muffins 🙂
Love these – and making again…adding some chopped pear in bc I’m low in the apple dept. Love your recipes! Thank you!
Hi Jane, Ohhh I love the idea of adding pear, yum! So glad you enjoy the muffins 🙂
Perfect with a little sugar free syrup on the top! Makes for a great breakfast and so nice to mix it up with a new recipe! Thank you!
I’m so glad you enjoyed the muffins 🙂
These muffins are excellent! Even better is they are cooked without anything artificial. I do not like sugar substitutes. In addition, I can’t believe they were only 2 personal points for me WOO HOO! WIN WIN — Thank you
Yay! So glad you enjoyed the muffins Susan 🙂 My stomach can’t handle sugar substitutes so I never use them
Can I use plain non-fat yogurt in place of the greek yogurt?
Yes, that should work ok
