Sweet Treat: Kiwi and Yogurt Muffins

I opened my fridge to find it nearly empty – one egg, condiments, and an abundance of plain yogurt. How did it come to this? Regardless, I needed to concoct a muffin of the month, and I pulled the yogurt from the fridge. Then, I ran down to the market and grabbed a kiwi, thinking, “Hrm, never baked with this before!” The result? These delightfully sweet, crumbly, kiwi and yogurt muffins!

‘Ki-wi’ hope you love them!

    These look amazing! (: Just one question..Plain Yogurt or Vanilla Yogurt?!

      Stephanie, I used plain and depended on the vanilla extract for flavor and sweetness. However, you can use any flavor you wish, just remember to leave out the extract if you don’t want the muffins too sweet.

    My husband and I just made a batch of mini fruit pizzas today (they’re easy: make some sugar cookies, slather them with cream cheese mixed with sugar and almond extract, top with the fruit of your choice).

    Its not entirely~my~ recipe. I always use yours and some from theppk.com as a base and I switch out and add ingredients to my liking/curiosity :)
    http://www.theppk.com/2009/11/the-best-pumpkin-muffins/
    I swapped the soy milk for Coconut milk and unsweetened vanilla almond milk (half/half)
    And I also use half whole red wheat and half whole grain pastry flour. When I use all whole wheat the muffins tend to be too tough :/
    And I added figs, pecans, walnuts and some raspberries in a few as a surprise.

    I just pulled these kiwi muffins out of the oven and OH THEY ARE GOOD. ive been really critical about my moofins(everyone else likes them but i always have something to nit-pick about them) BUT OH THESE ARE GOOD MUFFINS.

    Thank you so much for the inspiration!
