I learned this trick from Meghann: mix your muffin batter the night before and store overnight in the fridge.
I used this recipe from Stonyfield to mix up the batter for Blueberry Yogurt Muffins. This morning, I simply scooped the batter into my muffin tin and baked the muffins while I walked the dogs.
Viola! Homemade Blueberry Yogurt Muffins on a weekday. What more could I ask for?
These muffins were fabulous! Instead of oil, I used plain Greek yogurt. The recipe also uses a mix of whole wheat and regular flour – wahoo! I reduced the amount of sugar from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup and couldn’t taste a difference. This might be the healthiest patch of muffins I’ve ever eaten.
Nom, nom, nom! 🙂
Plus a banana on the side:
Now I feel like it’s Sunday! 🙂

Now they are being stuck up in high schools, shopping centres and hospitals in our area of Australia. We all agree that it makes us feel good and hope that it helps others feel happier too. "
I love mass Operation Beautiful postings!! The more, the merrier!
Check out the rest of the notes here.
Yum! Applesauce is also a great substitute for oil but yogurt is delish also.
And good to know that cutting down on sugar doesn't make a difference; I'll try that next time!
