Blueberry & Strawberry Yoghurt Mini Muffins
Finding healthy recipes that actually get eaten is quite a skill, and I’ve found a recipe that my children absolutely LOVE. These blueberry & strawberry yoghurt mini muffins are a huge hit in our house and the recipe is easy enough that the kids can help you make them too.
I try to make a batch up on the weekend and then we eat them during the week. They freeze really well too so why not make a double batch and pop some in the freezer for later.
The trick to this recipe is to use yoghurt that has no added sugar (you’ll be amazed at how much is in some of them!). I like to use Rafferty’s Garden as I know that they don’t add any extra sugar to theirs. We also use these yoghurts for snacks, so we always have them in the fridge.
A little #mumhack is to keep all those half eaten yoghurt pouches (and the half eaten berries if you’re kids are anything like mine!) and then use them in this recipe at the end of the week.
We make them as mini muffins as these are the perfect size for babies and toddlers, but you can easily make larger muffins – just cook them for a little longer.
