I stumbled upon this amazing recipe that doesn't contain any butter or any other extra calories. Seriously, I didn't believed that it would taste good, but it actually taste absolutely amazing and one muffin has ONLY 90 calories! To this basic muffin recipe you can add any flavour or adds you want, e.g. I decided to add some cherries. So if you want to know how you can bake these tasty low-calorie vanilla yoghurt muffins, then keep on reading.
For 12 muffins:
- 100g sugar
- 1 big egg
- 150g vanilla yogurt
- 150g flour
- 2 tbsp of baking powder
- vanilla flavour
I also added: 2 drops of bitter almond flavour, morello cherries & red food colouring
Topping: sugar glaze with slight lemon taste & edible paper flowers
1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
2. Put the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Add the sugar, egg and yogurt into a larger bowl.
5. Add the morello cherries and mix them carefully with the dough. I would recommend a cooking spoon.
7. For the topping I added just some sugar glaze that had a slight lemon flavour and decorated the muffin with some flowers made out of edible paper.
And then you have your muffins! I can only say once again that they taste incredible. They are really soft, moisturized and naturally sweet because of the vanilla yoghurt. I seriously can not taste a difference to normal muffins and the muffins are full of juicy cherries because we just mixed them very lightly. However, the best thing is that you can eat them without having a guilty conscience and even during a diet!
Please let me know whether you liked these muffins?
Wish you a wonderful day!
Lots of love,
