Apple cinnamon greek yogurt muffins

February 15, 2018

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 freestyle smart points each.

    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

    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

    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

    You used regular flour in these, not self-rising? My friend shared your IG page with me and I am so happy she did.

    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

    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

    Can you use plain non fat yogurt or do you need to use Greek?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle April 5, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      You can try regular but greek is a much thicker yogurt so the texture might be altered

      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

    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…..

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle May 18, 2018 at 7:04 pm

      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 🙂

  • Reply Steven Bauer May 19, 2018 at 11:24 pm

    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!!

    How many calories for one muffin? Can you use bananas also

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle June 6, 2018 at 12:28 pm

      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

    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

  • Reply DIANE November 5, 2018 at 1:54 am

    I used 1 tbsp. splenda brown sugar to bring it down to 1 SP per muffin. These are amazing !!! taste like homemade apple strudel.
