Yogurt Honey Health Muffins

Makes 24 mini muffins
Time 40 min
This recipe comes to us courtesy of the Renegade Lunch Lady Chef Ann Cooper and her book Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed our Children. The addition of yogurt not only makes these muffins moist, but helps them stay fresh in an airtight container for up to three days and still taste wonderful. If cake flour is not readily available, all-purpose flour can be substituted. The muffins will be slightly denser, but will taste just as good.

Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F and oil a mini muffin pan.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

Add the oats, cranberries, apricots, sunflower seeds, orange zest and bran and mix to combine.

In another bowl combine the yogurt, honey, vanilla, butter and eggs and stir until the ingredients are well blended.

Pour the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to mix, just until all ingredients are incorporated.

Take care not to overmix.

Fill muffin cups two-thirds of the way with batter.

Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes.
