#Recipe: Easy Flax Seed Yogurt Muffins

Last Updated on

I don’t try a lot of homemade muffins…mainly because for some reason they always turn out about the same density of a brick! But, my kids love muffins and I hate buying boxes of premade stuff that contains all sorts of artificial junk. So, I found this recipe in an old Stonyfield Farms yogurt cookbook and it was so simple looking I just had to give it a shot. The original recipe uses poppy seeds but I didn’t have those so I threw in flax seeds instead. They came out amazingly light and fluffy with a bit more ‘chewiness’ than a cakey boxed mix. We all really enjoyed them. You can probably substitute any dried fruit for the raisins and add things like hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.

  1. 1/2 cup baking powder?!!? Why so much?
    • oh dear! Thanks for catching that! I modified it to read the 1/2 tsp that it should have said! I hope no one tried that recipe without making the change!
