Apple Mandarin Yogurt Muffins Made with Whole Wheat
Sometimes, I get on a kick where I try to pack as much nutrition as possible into a single baked good, while still making it taste delicious.
In these apple mandarin yogurt muffins, I’ve combined the vitamin C of Noble Juice’s Apple Mandarin Chai, the protein of Greek yogurt, and the fiber of whole wheat all in one tasty package.
They have a bright citrus flavor, a slightly sticky top, and are deliciously filling due to all the protein and fiber. And, since this recipe only requires half a cup of juice, you’ll even have some extra juice left over to drink with your fresh muffins!
You can serve these muffins for breakfast, snack, or dessert. I like to have them slightly warm with a touch of salted butter. My kids devoured them and asked for more. That’s when you really know that a recipe is a success.
Tips for Making Apple Mandarin Yogurt Muffins
- The combination of cake flour and whole wheat flour gives these muffins a softness that you wouldn’t get if you used whole wheat flour alone.
- No applesauce on hand? Try mashed banana instead.
- Don’t have muffin liners? Use a baking spray, or butter and flour the muffin tin thoroughly.
- Since these are higher in protein than your average muffin (because of all the Greek yogurt), they will get firmer if left out. Be sure to store airtight after cooling.
- If you have extra batter left over, you can thin it out with a bit of milk and use it as pancake batter. Yum!
- Use this store locator to find delicious Noble Juice where you live. Can’t find it? Substitute a 1/4 cup of orange juice plus 1/4 cup of apple juice.
