Muffin Monday - Super Moist Lemon Yogurt Muffins
These are how we made it up to the Papa for putting walnuts into last week's muffins. Not that he didn't enjoy them, but in the take it or leave its of life, walnuts would be on his leave it list. One thing he does love is lemon, and so today's muffin will surely be just about perfect. :)
This week's muffin was made using organic plain yogurt and the juice and zest of an organic lemon. Enjoy!
Super Moist Lemon Yogurt Muffins
makes 12 muffins
2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. organic sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
zest of 1 large lemon
1 1/4 c. plain organic yogurt
1/3 c. butter or coconut oil, melted
juice from 1 large lemon
1 t. real lemon extract
Preheat oven to 375F and grease muffin tin (we like to use coconut oil) or line with paper baking cups.
Measure the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and lemon zest into a large mixing bowl; stir with a whisk to blend.
Whisk eggs in a small bowl; add yogurt, real lemon extract, lemon juice, and melted fat (we used butter this time). Stir until well blended.
Add wet mixture to dry ingredients stirring only until moistened - don't over mix your muffins!
Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full; lightly sprinkle batter with sugar. :)
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes; check with a toothpick to be sure they're done. Cool slightly before removing muffins to a wire rack.
We would love to know if you give any of our muffin recipes a try. Let us know how they turn out or if you put a different spin on them. :)
