One cup Yogurt Muffins

One cup Yogurt Muffins is perfect for a baking session with your kids.

These One cup Yogurt Muffins I saw at the Spar Junior Chef event that was held last Saturday here in Cape Town. It seems as if I was under a rock somewhere, because the internet is flooded with this clever recipe. Most of the recipes are for sweet muffins or loaf cakes, because children like sweet yogurt. I immediately thought about the possibility to change the recipe into a savory treat. We have in the meantime baked both and it works. As long as you have the formula right, the recipe can go either way. So you can have something savory for morning tea and something sweet for afternoon tea.

Obviously for the savory version your must use natural yogurt and I prefer Fairview Full Fat Yogurt, but for the sweet muffins you can basically use any fruity flavor you feel like. I used strawberry yogurt.
