GREEK YOGURT BREAKFAST MUFFINS 4 WAYS

greek yogurt muffins, breakfast muffinsThese Greek Yogurt Breakfast Muffin recipes came about when I had a container of Greek yogurt in the refrigerator that I needed to utilize. I had originally purchased it to eat as a dessert with frozen blueberries, but ended up eating other desserts instead. So, I decided to make breakfast muffins with Greek yogurt as an ingredient. I made Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Chunk Muffins, Banana Nut Muffins, and Apple Cinnamon Muffins.

Blueberry muffins are what I usually reach for, but I also wanted to try the same master recipe that I use for blueberry muffins and swap out other ingredients for the blueberries. I tried chocolate chunks and white baking chips, bananas and nuts, and apples and cinnamon. The results were so delicious that I wanted to share the recipes with you!

Below, I first provide the master recipe. Then I provide the alternate ingredients and instructions for each version. The different variations are super easy and provide a variety!

Sometimes, the ingredients we have around the house end up making the best treats!

Watch my video to see how I make these Greek Yogurt Breakfast Muffins.

Enjoy!
