Orange cranberry greek yogurt muffins

May 21, 2018

I always love coming up with a new flavor combo for a good low point muffin. I have been on a bit of a cranberry kick lately and these orange cranberry greek yogurt muffins are bursting with flavor. Bake some up today, they are great to have on hand for a nice treat with a coffee/tea or perfect for a quick grab and go breakfast. Muffins are just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle.

    Would all of your muffin recipes work with whole wheat flour?

      They should, but I have never baked with whole wheat so I can’t give an honest answer sorry

    Do you have to use fresh OJ and can I substitute blueberries?

      fresh OJ has no points so just keep that in mind, and sure you can swap out for blueberries, that sounds yummy 🙂

    I have a ton of dried cranberries. What do you suggest in terms of quantity to replace fresh?

      Hi Pam, I’d probably still use a cup if I was using dry, let me know how they turn out 🙂

    I made these with dried cranberries and they are very good However I think I would add a bit of vanilla or almond flavouring next time.Thanks for the recipe.

      The OJ really adds to the flavor so I am not sure I would leave it out otherwise your completely changing the overall results
