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

      • I hope you don’t mind my butting in. I have worked with whole wheat flour and feel like it would significantly change the texture of the muffins. To get a similar consistency I would try either whole wheat pastry flour (which is a little more refined) or half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. Then you can adjust the ratio after tasting the results.

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

      • NO the points!!!!! Dried cranberries are 29 points per cup. Fresh cranberries are zero points for one cup.

  4. 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.

      You are welcome, glad you enjoyed them and thanks for the tip 🙂

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

  5. Could I substitute some oat flour for some of the all-purpose flour?

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI, I have never baked with oat flour but I don’t see why not

  6. Can you use frozen cranberries & self rising flour? If you can use self rising flour, what ingredients can you leave out?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes frozen are fine but sometimes do carry extra water, self rising flour is fine, you can leave out baking powder or just add a tiny pinch instead
